Spring Pops up in Central Park, NYC

It is April and Spring has arrived. The weather is warming, the flowers are blooming, and allergies are sneezing. In hopes of a shot for a project I am working on, I headed to Central Park. I was also planning on seeing some fireworks, but some of Nature’s quirks stopped that (see Spring’s other friend: Thunderstorm). While there were some early buds, most of the trees were still barren, so there will be more trips in search of the shot I am looking for (such is life as a photographer).

Next week: If I finish the shots in time, a trip to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. If not, something else.
