  1. That is such a wonderfully pastoral shot, it's hard to remember that it's in the heart of the city.

  2. Beautiful shot. I would never have guessed it was taken in the middle of a city.

  3. Love the rain bubbles bouncing off the water. Love the bridge. Love New Yawk...This is truly restful (Mr. Olmstead done good).

    I love, love the ivy (?) covered bridge...

  5. So many shades of green, beautiful.
    The rain dots on the water look like pointalism.

  6. Did you mean Sky Dog Days of August? Maybe I'm running the posts together in my head. I can't wait to get back to New Yawk. Hey that probably makes me the only person in the world that can't wait to turn 50!

  7. Ha, ha! You can really fool someone that this is the way New York City looks with this shot. Beautiful and pastoral.

    Plink, plink, plunk has been the way of the weather in New Jersey, too.

  16. "...New Yawk" - love it!

    Rain drops falling on water; I can just imagine the sound and smell the freshness of the rain. I am enjoying your photo from my dry, dry corner of this country.

  18. this is wonderful and I may be the only exurbian who, in the summer, longs to be back in the heart of NYC and walking around in good old (beautiful) Central Park!

  21. A New Yawk poetess you are, Daryl! I was at the Nassau Museum of Art out in the rain photographing outdoor sculpture for Summer Stock Sunday... Love your CP shot! :)

  22. Excellent shot.
    When I was a kid in Africa, we used to call a sun shower "a monkey's wedding" - no idea why, but we used to love the thought of it.

    Also, I told Uncle Tim that his Skydog was on the internet yesterday. He looked a little confused....

  26. So pretty and green! In a few short months it will be all gray and dreary! I was too busy this weekend to get a Summer Stock picture up!

  27. This looks like a painting. The rain gives it an impressionistic look. I think it could be hung next to Monet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art!
