Behind the Image
City Angels is one of those photographs that reminds me of what I love so much about the place I grew up in, New York City. Photographed in the center of Central Park, Bethesda Fountain is a must see for anyone visiting the city for the first time.
The Angel of the Waters statue in the middle of the fountain is one of my favorite statues in the park and it’s no wonder why. The statue overlooks the lake in Central Park which is filled with musicians, artists, friends, lovers, and anyone else who wants to experience a moment of peace in a busy city.
It was a crisp, fall day when this photograph was taken. The fall foliage can be seen in the background and offers my favorite kind of backdrop there is. It offers the perfect blend of natural and man made beauty during autumn, which has and probably always will be my favorite season.
