Today on this chilly winter morning when I woke up and looked out my bedroom window, I was happy to be off from work, even if I had to shovel yet AGAIN on what seemed like the hundredth snowstorm of the season. (Honestly can anyone in New York even remember what the bare ground looked like before Christmas?)
Besides not having to work, another thing I was looking forward to was going to meet my friends Michael and Ron for the movies early this evening, but first with a fresh blanket of snow on the ground I wanted to go to Snug Harbor and capture some pictures before the days stampede of foot prints cluttered up my potential scenes. Not wanting my very own footprints to ruin my own shot, I took the rather looong route around the entire Healing Gardens, after leaving the Chinese Gardens (which you can spot off in the distance barely to the left of the bridge), so I could come up from behind on this scene. But alas I was too late as the snow across the bridge and its' path had already been trampled by many a man and dog. But my healthy walk in the brisk fresh air wasn't all for naught, as even if the view I coveted was lost, that still that didn't mean I couldn't try an alternate view.
