Better Than Real Because It's Not.

I have been working myself to the point of breakage.   I chose a most unlikely circuit-breaker.  I would go photograph Christo & Jean-Claude’s The Gates at Central Park.  Needless to say,  I went on the very last day, very nearly at the last minute.

 So, let me be the first to say, I don’t get Christo



I do know a lot of orange fabric when I see it.

 I wandered around, tense, and taking all manner of photos that I presumed wouldn’t come out very well.  In fact I did lose at least one shot to a failing disc in my camera.


 After I settled down, I decided to try and take the pictures less taken.  I present what I hope is one of the odder collections of The Gates photographs.


Favorite line of the day "I’m so sorry my mother missed this, she was supposed to come out on the day it snowed.  Oh,… she was going to accessorize!"


 This woman did.

Oh, and I’ve gotten my camera back since I last posted in here.

More of teh gates in teh gallery.
