Writing with Light

Prospect Park

Prospect Park was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux after they completed Central Park in Manhattan. It’s a glorious park to spend time in and I have to get back there in the summer when the trees are full of leaves. It was a beautiful day when I was there and the sun was shining but I thought this image was better suited to a black and white treatment which added a bit more of a mysterious feel to it.

On another note I’ve started a new project called T.O. Dogs. I posted the first in the series over on the PhoDOGraphy by Edith Levy site. You can check out the first in the series, a Siberian Husky named Max here.

  2. I’ll bet you didn’t know that New Yorkers originally referred to Olmstead’s creation in Manhattan as “the central park,” which was a description rather than a name. As the description became a name, people dropped the “the” and capitalized the “Central Park.” Later the same thing happened to “the grand central station.”

    The B&W choice and the processing makes those trees pop Edith. Great tones too.
