Turtle Pond in Central Park

Alycia borrowed our camera and took some incredible shots while gallivanting through Central Park. This is a shot of Turtle Pond, named for....well, housing many turtles under the floating grass and lily pads.

Turtle Pond also happens to hold great memories for me. From the months of March-June last year, I commuted, roughly 6 miles one way on my bike. Much of that ride was through the park and each morning, I would pull off and sit on a secluded park bench with this same view. At 6:15 each morning, it proved to be a place to gather my thoughts and be still before venturing toward another day in Harlem.
