Central Park Snow (2)

From the same roll (yes, I know, I’m dating myself) as the previous photograph. All photos in this series will be from the same strip of 18 images.

Central Park Snow (1)

Since it is July, and the Big Apple is in the midst of a blistering heatwave, I thought it’d be cool (bad, xiao su, bad) to post some photographs that I took in Central Park during a snowy winter. I think this was the winter of 1990/1991… the last winter I lived in NYC. Neither here or there, but at the time I shot these photos, I was renting a very small room in an apartment on 90th and Lex.

All of these were taken on black and white film. I had the negatives scanned-in during 2008 (extremely cheap to do in Beijing when compared to doing so in the US of A).

The photos are all recently edited using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4.

btw, I don’t know the names of some of the statutes. Pointers would be appreciated.

UPDATE: Erika and El Viejo pointed-out that this was the “Angel of the Waters”, and supplied these great links:
