Central Park’s Bethesda Fountain
If you’re in Central Park on any weekend with wonderful weather, prepare to run into the Brides! If you’re at Bethesda Fountain and don’t see a Bride, you ain’t lookin’.
Okay, it’s a wild exaggeration but bridal couples, and often just the bride, can be seen actually dashing from one area in Central Park to another with one or more photographers and family to catch the light and the just-right background for a shot. And there are few places more photogenic than the fountain.
As you can see, a wonderful open area called, I believe, the Naval Terrace, leading to the Bethesda Fountain which is just a few yards from a nice lake. Brides seem to love it.
She may be too young to be a bride (maybe it’s a coming-out/debutante or whatever they call it) but it’s the same sort of idea. Dress up to pose at your absolute best in front of one of NYC’s best spots. The Fountain is in a low area and the climb out of the place is a bear…
I’m sure she was having a great time. She certainly was the center of attention of a whole lot of us for a few minutes.
Here’s another, somewhat tighter shot of the fountain.
It is nice.
Oh, as I was heading out I saw a verifiable Bride and Groom in somewhat unusual regalia. Here’s the front shot of them walking up toward me.
I noticed the Bride had a gown that wasn’t standard garb…here’s the back shot….
Angel wings. Hey, it is her day so who can/would say anything about it? Actually, the New Yorker in me loves that sort of individuality. Good for her.
