taking pictures of leaves

We try to time it every year, a picture perfect red, orange, and gold visit to Central Park. The changing of the leaves. The quintessential "autumn in New York". One year, without trying (because that's always how these things go) we arrived on a cold day in early November and took 700 pictures of leaves and every pretty sight we came across. We have been less lucky in subsequent years. Sandy downed trees that closed the ramble. Central Park is on it's own time scale when it comes to the changing of the leaves. While the little yellow leaves have littered village streets for weeks, plenty of green remains uptown, at the center of the island. This weekend was pretty close to perfect though. We spent Saturday afternoon wandering through a sea of orange and gold and stopped to snap lots of pictures. 

Have a happy Monday and thank you so much for reading!

  14. I've only been to NYC once and Central Park was by far one of my favorite parts. I went right in the beginning of September so the leaves weren't quuuuite changing yet, but I'm living vicariously through your gorgeous pictures ;) As for your outfit, that purse is a dream! I love the clean lines and that it's big enough to carry notebooks and such in it. What an awesome find :)

  15. I so love this time of the year. Living in the south I am surrounded by trees so I take it everyday. Visit my blog for a chance to WIN a pair of vintage sunglasses.
