Central Park is probably my favourite place in New York. I love how this little piece of forest has survived over the years in the middle of such a big city. I love walking around it––even having my own little picnics, if the weather permits––and feeling in contact with nature, which is one of the things I value the most in life. I also love feeling surrounded by trees, but being able to see all the amazing buildings of the city above them whenever I raise my gaze to the sky.
Central Park is particularly pretty in the fall, as all the trees start turning orange/red and leaves fall to cover the grounds. This is probably one of the first memories I have of New York, and I still love to see it year after year... Unfortunately, most leaves are not orange at all yet––and I honestly doubt it they will make the colour change before falling––but I still managed to shoot some cute pictures of my secret garden.
