Central Park on a Sunday afternoon …

A quiet stroll through Central Park on July 5, 2009

You might think people were just hanging out at the big fountain…

There were buskers doing gymnastics to the rhythm of hip-hop.
(They’re surrounded by the crowd)

But, others were enjoying the fountain…

And many were enjoying the lake.

Some in gondolas…

And others, brought out their toy-boats…

And of course, all were sharing the lake with the ubiquitous rowboats.

Then… on to the solitude of “The Rambles.” Created with that in mind… solitude as you walk the meandering paths that never go where you think they will. A good place to get lost (for real) and very, VERY quiet. And we STOPPED taking pictures! Til we saw the Oak Bridge:

We know we’re finally  “out-of-the woods”! Cause there’s the top of the Natural History Museum as it peeks over the trees …

We’re back! To the hustle, the bustle…. the noise of the city…
