around the fire barrel...

there is nothing like hanging with family and friends around a warm fire barrel on a cold night...

the full moon, hot, hot!
Oogie Boogie...
stirring it up...
aerating the barrel helps it burn...
faces in the fire...

Central Park in the fall...

the beauty of New York City...

towards the entrance to the mall...a lamp post
one of the many statues
sun through the trees...
the bethesda fountain
lily pads
the bow bridge
a boat ride through central park
vibrant fall leaves
looking out over turtle pond from belvedere castle
fall leaves covering the ground like snow
a fabulous mix of colors
a bit of jazz...
