This month my Photo Heart Connection comes from our recent trip to New York where one of the highlights of our stay was a Sunday morning walk along the High Line, the old elevated railway in Manhattan that has been turned into a beautiful park and public space. I will get to my photo heart connection photo in a little while as it comes at the end of our walk, but first I would like to give you a feel for the High Line.
I was particularly impressed by the landscaping and planting
and the juxtaposition of nature and industry
There was the odd view of an iconic building in the distance
people having lunch
or having their wedding photos taken
and pleasing views at different points
But the moment that really made my soul sing was when I spotted this beautiful butterfly right in the middle of Manhattan
It was particularly exciting as we don't get butterflies this big in England, the recent pictures I took of butterflies like this were in the zoo!
It felt such a special thing to happen on the last full day of our visit to NYC, and it even hung around for ages so that I could take lots of pictures
Thanks to Kat Sloma for starting the Photo Heart Connection - do pop over and check out this months posts
