What a nice surprise when I woke up yesterday morning to see that New York was wrapped in a lovely white blanket! The first snow of the year! After the storm, there was a beautiful and magical light.
I took my courage and my camera, I put so many clothes on that I looked like nothing (multiple layers mode! On my legs : wool and cashmere tights, Uniqlo Heattech legging and warm pants, a pair of thick socks, and a pair of UGG! On top : Uniqlo Heattech long sleeves t-shirt, a cashmere sweater and a chunky wool sweater, a Gertrude down coat, a cap, a hood, a snood) and I walked around like a Teletubbies with all my layers on and my childish excitement, between the snowplows and the white cabs.
I didn’t need to go very far since I live only a fifteen minutes walk from Central Park. I spent two hours wandering in the park. It was beautiful. Breathtaking. I wasn’t even cold, except for my nose and my hands (try taking pictures with your gloves on!). I enjoyed the quietness of the part of the park that goes from 63rd to 69th streets, between the East Drive and the 5th avenue. Then I went to the south-east area, near the Gapstow bridge, the Pond and the ice-skating rink. If it was worth taking pictures with the buildings in the background, it was obviously full of people who had the same idea as I did, and others who were sledging or cross-country skiing, so it was less agreeable than the first part of the walk.
Anyway, through this article, I’m putting into practice two of my blogging resolutions for 2014 : helping you discover New York and my favorite places throughout the seasons, and practicing my photography. I was never good at taking pictures of landscapes, I usually leave that to Romain, but I have to become more independent J I really hope you’ll like these pictures… Tell me if you want to see more articles like this one in 2014.
Have an excellent week-end, and see you soon!
PS : thank you so much for your lovely comments on the previous post. I answered to everyone ; I usually don’t have time to do so, but this time I really wanted to.
