Winter at Central Park

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. 

I’ve been busy wrapping presents and going out for last minute gifts.  I did finally find the perfect gift for that friend who has everything and then a bottle of Chocolate Port for my hubby at one of my favorite specialty groceries here in Southern Arizona; AJ’s.  No, we are not in Central Park!  Though I do long to go back.  This is one of those images that takes me to a Christmas like setting like when I was growing up in Idaho.  Here in Arizona, we do not get snow and I do miss it at Christmas.  Not the cold though.  I don’t miss the cold one itty bit.  I left the cold country many years ago as it seem to freeze me right to the bone.


Winter at Central Park

I had a little fun with this image in Photoshop. Thought not perfect, the windows and the lighting outside is now aglow with light. I also enriched the color of the buildings and the cottage.  I don’t know if it’s re-opened but it was once a restaurant that was closed when we were there.

Lets talk about the two sides of me. I am a Gemini just so you know. The first side of me is the cooking and entertaining part. This is a major part of my life and I wouldn't be fulfilled without it. Of course, we all have to eat, but the main part of cooking for me is entertaining and sharing fun and flavorful foods with great friends. Dinner parties, happy hours and well, most anything to do with food is where I begin to enjoy. My other side, the artsy side is a craving for art, painting and photography. Maybe this is my Gemini left side of the brain?? Since starting to write a Blog I've picked back up what hubby calls my big ass camera and started carting it around again. He’s always afraid I will ask him to carry it. I keep thinking that when I retire (?#&*!!!) that I will have time to read all the photography books in my library and become a superb photographer. Wishful thinking.

    I’ve been away for awhile but warmly anticipating the holidays. I’m thinking of using this picture for my Christmas card. I hope to be more active beginning next week.

      Thanks John. I had fun editing it and adding light to the lamp posts and windows. I may have to use it next year as my Christmas card. 🙂


I'm looking forward to hearing from you..
