The following are a few photos I took of “The Gates” in Central Park for two weeks in February of 2005. “The Gates” was an installation by Christo and Jeanne-Claude (1935-2009) of 26 miles of orange fabric gates, as you can see in the photos. These were extra, extra-ordinary. attracting thousands and thousands of visitors from all over the world.
At that time, I was working only a few blocks from Central Park, so I used to go over there early in the mornings before work which gave me good morning light to take photos, like the one used in the header. There was also much snow during those two weeks which I think also adds something to the photos.
