A couple enjoys an afternoon boat ride on the lake at Central Park. The harmony and balance of the other elements in the picture — the water, trees, and buildings– suggest peace, even though the lady appears to be cold.

A walk through Central Park allows you to relax in the natural surroundings of grass, trees, water, and large boulders, while glimpses of the skyline remind you that the city streets are just moments away. I sometimes use familiar buildings in the skyline to help me find my way out of the park.
The Upper Eastside Manhatten skyline is mirrored in the motionless Conservatory Water of Central Park. It reminds me that we reflect best when we sit still and be quiet.
