Bride with Shadows

Uploaded: March 23, 2017 22:56:34 | Entered: March 23, 2017 22:57:11


Bethesda Terrace in Central Park NYC is a central hub for wedding parties posing with professional photographers taking individual or group pictures. I even saw a group on the coldest day of the year (wind gusting, snow blowing) gathering around the fountain plaza with the Terrace in the background. Needless to say, anyone with a camera or cell phone grabs their own shots of these events. Thus how I acquired this setting of the Bride posing with the afternoon sun and tiled wall of the Terrace in the backdrop.
