A blossoming walk, hills of green grass, a visit from the Scarlet Tanager for luck, and that warm spring sunlight returns to our city park…

Kissing goodbye the fall on Central Park West
As November slips away the last leaves fall on Central Park West making way for the winter air and snow filled trees…
Manhattan’s Upper West Side is synonymous with timelessness. Photographing something timeless allows the photographer to choose how to capture these moments and share them, either referencing a time passed or the present. While nothing can last forever, the look of it may be able to transcend time and place, and come to rest in a space more suited for our memories than reality. I headed out one winter’s weekend in New York for a walk around my neighborhood to capture the places and sights that stand to represent an area of New York, and for me, a certain time in my life. I shot these nine images with my Polaroid 440 Land Camera and black and white instant film.
