The Untermyer Fountain was dry. Yet the three maidens kept dancing in all their bronze glory.
The afternoon sun was ablaze—the worst natural light for taking photos. But the central garden’s pergola provided enough shade and framing for a money shot (see third image below).
Most flowers and trees were far from full bloom. Still, they offered just enough pinks, purples, yellows and multi-hued greens to make this a fruitful trip.
After I visited the Museum of the City of New York on the first Saturday in May, I walked across Fifth Avenue with my cameras to the Conservatory Garden in Central Park. With the parking meter ticking, I had less than an hour to snap away; so I didn’t make it through all the gardens. Another trip back there, when the gardens are all overflowing in colors this summer, is certainly in order. Enjoy!
