There is a park by my parents’ house in Queens, NY that I used to bike through because it was the only place that I was able to escape when I needed some solitude. It was an immensely large park that had hilly forest paths with an illusion that you’re in upstate New York and there were certainly times where I’d get lost. I recently went through the trails again with a friend who invited me to join her on a biking excursion. Although it was a breezy fall afternoon, my experience turned out to be more of an inspiration rather than a workout. I wish I had my camera to take a snapshot, but imagine cruising down a slightly narrow and long trail with trees surrounded besides you. The path is covered in a sea of foliage illuminated in yellow, orange, and red by a gleam of sunlight; and as you freely bike through, all you hear is the wind blowing against the trees and the rustling sound of crisp leaves under your feet.
I was hoping to capture something similar when I asked Jessica for a stroll around Central Park on a Sunday morning. Unfortunately, we soon realized most of the fall foliage was gone, but that didn’t put me down because Jessica is such an exquisitely beautiful person that practically filled all my photos with her warm persona. I couldn’t help but smile the day before when she was concern about what to wear. I told her to put some something she would wear on a brisk day and easily enough that was the perfect comment to inspire her to pick out this lovely ensemble.
