The Gates Revisited 2/23/05 in the melting snow

We revisited The Gates today on a colder but brighter day. Instead of starting south, we started above 86th Street by the Reservoir and walked south through some of our favorite Central Park venues--the Great Lawn, the Polish Statue, behind the Metropolitan Museum and, of course, by the Sailing Boat Pond with the Alice in Wonderland Statue. We walked and sat in the bright winter sun, intrigued by the ever-changing perspective of the blowing saffron Gates. As you can see, the bright saffron contrasts with the neutrals of winter. It was a wonderful afternoon which we shall not forget and which we know will happen again in this way!
