New York, New York
When I got into town Friday mid-afternoon with my pack of supplies for the workshop at Penumbra, we spent a couple hours rearranging things to get the second floor classroom and darkroom space set up for a digital/platinum workflow. Then I got to head out for a couple of hours of photo walkabout. In nearby Madison Square Park I found the flowering trees were weeks ahead of where they are up in northwestern Connecticut, but still weeks behind normal for springtime in New York.
There were people in the park, some of them looking at the promising signs of spring, but most of them texting:
322 trees, two of which are historic English elms that pre-date the Park's construction in 1850"
