My Favorite Things – A Snow Day in Manhattan

I was supposed to meet a friend for lunch today, but most of the city was “cancelled” this morning due to a large winter storm.  So I suited up in my warmest winter finery, pulled on my rain boots, and headed out with my camera – the first time in a long while that I’ve had an afternoon free to shoot pictures.  I wasn’t the only one out in Central Park, but the blanket of snow, blustery wind and flurries made it still feel very isolated and peaceful.

Here’s what I saw…
