I braved the freezing cold and biting wind of February 2005 to see Kristo's "Gates" in Central Park. I was there early in the morning, so I missed the hoardes of visitors and had the park to myself. It was so windy that the fabrics hanging from the gates were blowing upwards and getting tangled, producing backlit images like this one. The staff were busy running around from gate to gate carrying long poles with tennis balls attached to the ends of them trying to unravel the twisted fabrics.

hi shaun, i've seen some images of the "Gates" in central park but this one caught my eye like none other....love the way the subject has been treated in a totally different perspective and presented in this image.....still keeping the theme very much live...

Very nice photo, Shaun. I also photographed the gates and enjoyed my backlit photos the most, but this one catches things at a very nice angle and makes for a new look on an old topic. Thanks.
