  1. I recognize the path from a previous photo. Nicely done this time, too. I noticed the church steeple right away.

  2. Very nice! I love fall after all the leaves have fallen. You discover all kinds of things that have been hidden during the summer. It's like a surprise around every corner every day!

  4. l like this very much, in monochrome, it has more impact more pattern and my eye travels the lines of the overlapping branches....it is a quite wonderful maze of thought and wonder.

  5. Great contrasts, rich blacks - scrumptious.

  6. Hey Daryl, We're neighbors on Monochrome Weekly AND we just returned from a fabulous weekend in NYC! I don't know how the locals cope though, the Thanksgiving Day crows are starting to SWELL!!! Good luck!

  7. There are very few things I try never to miss. Most things I figure, ah, they'll make more. But I try never to miss your Monochrome Mondays! Wonderful, as usual, Daryl. :-)

  8. You know Monet made a career of finding different views of the same place/thing. This reminds me of why he did that.

    Superb!

  11. I think I saw something like this on the cover of the New Yorker except it wasn't as good

  12. Very fine, beautifully intricate against the gray background, the footpath leading the way.

  13. I like this one, too. When we were there for the 2003 Marathon, I got a few similar pictures through the trees...with the fall colors they came out pretty well.

    Hope you have a week filled with wonderful photographs and not too much work!

  14. Trees are so very important - especially in the city. Lovely photo.

  15. Moi? I love the buildings peeking through the bare branches. I think Janet's right, winter is very sculptural!

  16. It certainly changes the mood it caused in me - I guess it's the monotone.

    Just a quiet stroll on that path with you would be great. Although - I doubt it would be quiet with all the talking we would be doing.

  17. I like this so much and I also like the color one with a different perspective that you linked. This is a great subject for monochrome.

  18. Daryl I love this one. At first I didn't like the big tree in the foreground but I kept looking at in and saw the man walking. He was like a hidden surprise which kept the photo interesting and added depth or meaning as well as perspective. Still looking at the photo I begin to appreciate the contrast between the large tree and the tiny man. This is one of those photos that will be interesting to look at over time. Nothing is revealed right away. There is a story in there. Love it!

  19. Daryl, I love it when I stumble into your blog on richly textured monochrome Monday.

  20. Lines - so many lines in this picture I could stare at it for hours. (I'm including curved lines as well as the straight ones. I suppose those are called something besides lines but you understand what I"m saying.)

    Great shot.

  21. Great capture. The bare trees look so massive and almost block out the buildings.

  22. This just gets better and better. Neat angle!

  23. Another stunning monochrome.
    You could go down this path
    again and again.. I like It !!

  24. Absolutely beautiful. I love the texture of the bark in the foreground.

  25. Change the perspective and you change the picture. Well done.

  26. Memories of a few days there in June this year, my first trip to the City; loved the park.

  27. You have the B&W eye for sure. Marvelous tones and textures.

  28. It's been a walk in the park having you as my friend.

    I just HAD to say that.

  29. While your monochrome day is beautiful, we've had so many of them here 40 miles to the east of NYC, I really am getting tired of them and am beginning to have a hard time seeing their beauty.

  30. This is the perfect monochromatic shot. There is character and implied feeling in the photo. It says alone among millions to me.

  31. I am totally thinking I like Central park best when the leaves are off the trees.
