POSING IN THE PARK

In the Queens Botanical Garden, under the massive blue spruce, a wedding party gathers while members of the community walk by unperturbed. The bride must have selected the shade of yellow for the gowns knowing they would look spectacular with the spruce.
While at Brooklyn's East River Park a girl poses in her quinceanera dress for a posse of photographers.
In the Manhattan's Conservatory Garden, I capture a bride and groom awaiting  instructions from their photographer. Behind the quince and barberry hedges, there's no knowing the groom is wearing flip-flops. 
Near the Harlem Meer in Central Park, these women  pose in yoga suits as I huddle in my down park 4/8 to snap the shot.
And nearby a group attracts attention as they await the instructions of their photographer to start strolling.
 Animation makes the shot.


A girl dressed in her prom gown selects the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden of the NYBG for her mother's official pictures.  Where's her date?
Just across the path from the rose garden another bride and groom get ready for their photo op.
This guy at The High Line isn't posing, he's just reading in the most comfortable spot he knows.

Oy.
