Theme Thursday-Wind




Posted by PicasaMy mom and I visited Christo and Jean Claude's exhibit, The Gates on February 13, 2005. It was one of those perfect brisk February days. We didn't notice the wind because we were having too much fun taking photos. A great day and one of the happenings that makes New York City so special.

I remember reading about this a few years ago, but I don't recall seeing any photos with such vibrant colors! Thanks.

Excellent windy shot!

thanks for stopping by...I can understand your question because I have stood in front of many modern works of art trying to connect.

Here's the thing---having walked through central park many times, I can tell you that on that particular February day there was something different.The exhibit transformed the park and the way people interacted with it.

I will post some more shots so you can see what I saw--pretty cool--let me know what you think.
