52 Project and a Foggy Morning

Hello General Sherman!

This morning I realized that I was behind schedule on my 52 photo project. The idea is that you find a spot, and take one picture a week from that exact same spot for an entire year and at the end you have a wonderful little collection of pictures that show the seasons, the people and the city change.  Since this is the first Monday in January this will be my starting date. I will take a picture every Monday at the corner of 60th Street and Fifth avenue, looking north along the edge of Central Park. I thought this would be a good spot because you get a great view of the trees, which is helpful in pictures of the city because otherwise it can be hard to tell what the season is, lol.So without further ado, here is picture 1/52:

A lovely thick mist was hanging in the trees over it and I knew I couldn’t miss this opportunity to take a few more pictures.  It would mean being 10 minutes late for work, but no one would notice and the pictures I got made it so worth it!  It was magical. There was no one else around but for a lone person walking through the fog.  It was perfection. I adore a foggy drizzly day, they’re like a poem in the prose of the everyday. OK, now I’m getting carried away. 🙂

Look at this loveliness!

  1. What a terrific start to 2014. I used to live in New York (and miss it!) and I know exactly where you are standing and so doubly enjoy it. I like the pictures of the pond. Can’t you include it in your yearly project?

    • That’s not a bad idea… I could do two pictures every Monday. I do love that glacial rock by the pond. Thanks for the idea!
