Central Park

What does it say about me that I took more pictures of turtles than people while walking home through Central Park?? (I like turtles. I should try to find a picture I took of turtles 30 years ago. There were a bunch of them in the church garden behind the apartment where I lived at the time. Weird!)


The same turtles, pulled back.


While there are people in this shot I took it because of the trees, and the fact that a scene from the movie The Happening was shot here. A movie I enjoyed even though one of the stars didn’t! Mark Wahlberg: “it was a really bad movie… Fuck it. It is what it is. Fucking trees, man. The plants. Fuck it. You can’t blame me for not wanting to try to play a science teacher. At least I wasn’t playing a cop or a crook.”
