A NYC landmark, Madison Square Park, nestled in an area famous for its unceasing movement and bustle is captured in early spring moments of verdant stillness and mystery.

The pause of flowers from bloom to rot fills the empty space between raindrops as they unspool in fountains.  Humans and animals caught as statues mid-action become eternal like the paving stones, moving as slowly as trees.
