"Of Leaf and Stone . . . "


I'm trying to catch up with things here on ye olde blog . . . and thought I'd step in the 'way-back' machine for a great images from my recent trip to New York in early May.  I was in town to help celebrate the launch of Ronda Carman's new book, Designers at Home - with parties here and there . . . but, my trip also included a little extra time on a quiet Sunday afternoon and evening for a walk around this amazing city.

So, with trusty Cannon camera in hand - I snapped numerous pictures both walking to (in the late afternoon) and coming back from (close to midnight) a dinner with friends across town.

For some reason - I've always been fascinated by urban greenery.  Either large public parks.  Or small private city gardens.  And even a simple tree lined street.  There's something about seeing architecture through nature - and the push and pull of these two VERY differing concepts - that has always intrigued me.

 So here is a bit of my urban travels . . . west side to east side . . . and back again . . .

Enjoy . . .
