An Ode to Change

Many walks yield a wealth of discoveries, and pictures! Particularly this time of year here in New York. The leaves are changing, the sky is crystal blue and the air is crisp. To cross a bridge or walk along to water is a pure treat, and upon entering a park, you just feel Autumn humming in the branches of trees.

This is a good time to discover my new neighborhood which is right at the South of Prospect Park in Brooklyn, but before that I ventured all the way up to Central Park where I could lay in large fields of the greenest grass around. I will stare at this picture longingly as winter begins to grip the city.

But on my many walking adventures I have found some places of quiet and serene beauty, buttressed against feats of architecture.

For a city with such a dense population, we can all still manage to carve out a place all for ourselves. I feel fortunate to have found a few.

And just like the sunset, the leaves reflect what is to come; a staggering array of multicolored stemmed treasures that will eventually fade as our day light hours get shorter and colder.

 Change is upon us, Keep it coming.

  1. I don't know what I find more beautiful, your words or your pictures. Can you just imagine what it must have been like 300 years ago. What a beautiful place, nature at her finest. Even now there are glimpses of her natural beauty
