Monochrome Monday in Central Park

This is a post for monochrome Monday hosted by @old-guy-photos and for this post I decided to share a few of the sights in Central Park starting with this shot of the Angel of the Waters Fountain

The Fountain sculpture designed by Emma Stebbins in 1868 and unveiled in 1873, Stebbins was the first woman to receive a public commission for a major work of art in New York City.
The bronze, eight-foot statue depicts a female winged angel touching down upon the top of the fountain, where water spouts and cascades into an upper basin and into the surrounding pool. It was the only statue in the park called for in the original design. Beneath her are four four-foot cherubs representing Temperance, Purity, Health, and Peace.

Next up here is a shot of the lower level of Bethesda terrace

Now I usually do shots of this feauture in the park in color and I do have shot sof it in color for a future post where I will talk more about it

Next up is Bow Bridge

The Bow Bridge is perhaps the most well-known bridge in Central Park, it is a cast iron bridge located in Central Park, and crosses over The Lake and used as a pedestrian walkway. It is decorated with an interlocking circles banister, with eight planting urns on top of decorative bas-relief panels. The bridge was designed by Calvert Vaux and Jacob Wrey Mould, and completed in 1862. Measuring a total of 87 feet (26.5 m), it is the largest bridge in the park.

And finishing off with the Dome, at the end of the Mall close to Bethesdha terrace

Great shots! That is really cool the story about the fountain. It is great to see a woman being celebrated for her work. Especially at the time period it was created.

I must admit i only learnt about her preparing the post and yes it is great seeing a woman being celebrated way back then it was the exception for sure in those times

Good morning @tattoodjay. Beautiful pictures, love the one of the fountain. Keep it coming my friend, always enjoy your posts.

Thanks for the visit and so kind of you :)

Good to see some classy architecture ...

Ohh yeah they sure had style when they built this station

The last photo.. that's a cool dome / bandstand!! They painted the one in Orlando all rainbows!!! The one at the beach is still all aged and retro / Victorian looking tho..

The rainbow sounds interesting , the one here is similar to one we had in the city I grew up in which was bigger and called the sound shell encaustic it has sort of a shell shape to it

They did it for "Orlando Pride" and the pulse nightclub shooting victims

I see so its recent I think it’s great they did that

These photos are just amazing!! (Specifically the first 3)

hanks Kindly I wasn’t sure about the 4th shot but i always like to have at least four shots in a post ;)

Great photos as always. I love that mirror image of the bridge. OUTSTANDING!

Thanks so kind of you and the Bow Bridge over the lake is perfect for reflections on a Still day

Great job with the photos and good info on that fountain. Later buddy

Thanks mate i hope your day is going well

The Bethesda Terrace is absolutely stunning and I can attest to the fact that I've never captured it quite this way. You have a way of making Interiors pop and really capture my attention. The angel he's always one of my favorites, perhaps because she's an angel and perhaps just because she's beautiful.

And might I say that while the bridge is one of the most photographed pieces in Central Park, not everybody can make it look quite as beautiful in that reflective moment that you used.

Have an amazing monochrome Monday!

Thanks for your visit and just trying to contain my head from swelling with such kind comments :)

I hope your day is starting well,I was planning to take it easy step wise today but that had gone out the window LOL

Hahaha! Even when you have to drag that half-dead body across the walk, you still go! :)

You cannot fool me!

LOL Maybe but I am actually trying to keep my step count between 7 and 10 K at the moment as the Vascular Doctor said to try taking it a little easy for a little while or till y next check in 3 months, but I dont really think I am over doing it i am now power walking or anything Just taking casual strolls inthe morning and then today I ended up have to go to three different buildings so far

My best suggestion to you is it do less steps at the beginning of your day, so you keep Within reason of his suggestion. You might be putting too much stress on your vascular system.

I did try that today only did a little loop this morning about 5K before getting to the office :)

He said what I am doing is probably fine but not to feel the need to push myself, or this how I am interpreting what he said to justify waking which I like to do LOL

He said sometimes scarring comes and goes and thats what I am hoping for, and its not blocking’s much at the moment which is also shown but he fact I dont get the pains I did when walking when they first discovered the blockages starting

That is good then, but, keep in mind they have now lowered the standard of 10,000 steps as the golden rule. I am sure you have seen different articles on this.

https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2019/05/29/727943418/do-you-really-need-10-000-steps-per-day

Yes I have read a few the consensus seems to be between 5 and 7.5 K from what I have seen, and thats the goal I m setting myself to try for, but you know me I cannot sit for long and love walking whenI need to think so its a challenge LOL

Thanks its a nice addition to the area apparently it is lit with colored lights at night which I haven’t seen yet

Yes, night changes everything. Lights change too - lol

LOL yes of course you are right
