As I prepare to take a short trip into downtown Cleveland for a little street photography, I’m reminded of what was probably my most photo worthy trip. It was 2003 and my family traveled to NYC for a family wedding. We stayed for several days and saw as much of this great city as we could squeeze in. While walking around in Central Park one day, I came across this scene. The rock embracing the tree and the tree embracing the rock just fascinated me. Furthermore, I was amazed that this scene was in the heart of NYC and not out somewhere in the wilderness!
When I chose to convert this photo to black and white, I loved the full range of tones that it contained. It’s one of those photos that hangs in my home.
