The city tundra of Central Park sunset in winter . . .
That last photo with the addition of the brush on the right enhances the photo incredibly! That looks like a painting.
It felt almost as though I had wandered into a painting. Thank you Angeline!
Ooo, ahhh, pretty grays of winter Patti !
Thank you so much Margie!
Lovely vistas Patti.
It was lovely being there, thank you Lignum!
Painted with your winter brush, looking good.
Thank you kindly Bente!
That poor little bush puts in all in perspective, brilliant.
So lonely out there in the cold . . .. thank you so much Elena!
Cold! So cold! Bring back summer, pleeeeeeeeeeaaas!
It will come . . . . !
Very evocative series
Thank you and lovely to hear from you.
I like the soft tones – and how the trees and buildings almost become one.
The blur of winter, thank you so much Rabirius!
Beautiful! A new take on the Fairytale of New York.
I like that idea, thank you so much Alison!
nice term “city tundra” – maybe there exists a social tundra (not in NYC, elsewhere, maybe in Somalia)
Or perhaps it can exist as a simple state of mind . . .
you are right, in my lifetime I had the pleasure to be the slave of such “mind tundras” – till I managed to free myself…
Patti these are pure frosty joy to see. Lovely work. xo
Thank you dear Lanier! Pure frost joy makes me want to run out and play in the snow, want to come?
YES by al the Cristalle ferries of a winters night . Aye by the light in your smile I say yes. Play and skate and songs of joy shall ring from the lips of this old boy.
Yes, yes, yes!
Here is to a world full of Yes!
Over at yours now, with Lady Emma, another Yes!
Ah yes the Lady Emma… Hope you find it to your liking. Hugs
What a woman, and what’s not to love! Away with the roses we go . . . xx
be careful of the thorns. xoxo
Lovely pictures. An artist can find beauty even iii the city tundra. Happy Sunday.
That is so sweet of you to say, thank you Tom and hope you enjoyed a pleasant week-end!
I can hear the silence in these photographs….
The sound of winter!
Stunning images, Patti!
Thank you so much Emily! Central Park has so many wonderful moods.
Lovely photos. Winter in America, so beautiful and moody.
A wonderful set of slides with this great song, and such a treat to hear it after all these years. Thank you so much Gerard!
Strangely, this is one of my all-time favourite songs, probably because of its melancholy mood. We had a recording in Australia by Doug Ashdown. This version was ‘new’ to me! Thanks.
Makes you want to curl up in bed and stay under the blankets . . . . forever!
The colours are so subtle, Patti – and cold and still and quiet. Great shots – I especially love that last one.
It’s sometimes very easy to forget you are in NYC, this was definitely one of those times. Thank you so much Meredith!
Yes, I know what you mean about Central Park but I don’t think I’ve seen shots that illustrate how vast it is quite like these, Patti.
Such is the magic of winter!

written for you, inspired by your metaphor:
thank you for the creative conversation!
Thank you Frizz!
You have captured the wonderful sense of space Patti! Is the city tundra as silent as it looks?
Wonderfully painterly shots, Patti! The palette reminds me of Brueghel.
Richard, I can’t paint for toffee so thank you very much for your kind words!!
Thank you Philippa and yes, I promise you, it is as silent as it looks!
Beautiful images! I love your work Patti!
Robyn, so touched by your kind words and a big thank you to you!
Lovely! awesome pictures
Soft and beautiful!! And such a vivid contrast to your usual vibrant NYC vignettes! Love the last one too Patti.
But you can paint, and you have just showed it I like the minimalistic cover the snow provides, and I love the tones in your pictures Patti!
Winter’s faint pastels —
Who says you can’t paint? Wrong! Even if it’s you who says so —
You make winter look so ethereal, Patti. I am reminded of The Chronicles of Narnia; something out of a mystical tale.
Thank you so much Annie, sending you greetings to your place in the sun!
I know that it’s an illusion, but everything looks so clean when it’s covered in snow.
I just wish Hampstead Heath was like this at the moment… Lovely shots Patti
Great softness, they have a watercolour feel, I think!
Winter plays such lovely games with our senses don’t you think!
I grew up in NYC. Lovely trip back…thanks to you.
I am sure you must have many stories to tell! Lovely to meet you!
