Photographer's Note

The other day, while taking a walk on Highline Park, I couldn't help but notice a pair of giant, blue eyes watching me - and everyone else. :-)

As I've mentioned in previous notes, Highline Park is a wonderful outdoor space created on a stretch of abandoned, elevated railroad tracks in Chelsea. The first section opened in 2009, and the second in 2011. There is one final section left, and if all goes according to plan, it will open later this year.

The first thing I noticed when I got up to the park was the amazing smell. There are so many wildflowers in bloom, and they smell great. The landscape changes along the way, from large sections of flowers, to a walkway with a canopy of trees overhead, to a grassy lawn where you can sit and relax.

These blue eyes followed me for a while, but not to worry, I was watching them back. :-)

In the WS is another POV with the giant eyes.
