NYC: Central Park and Midtown on an Early Morning Run

On our recent trip to New York City, one of my desires was to run through Central Park, and I knew that if I didn't go on that first morning, I wasn't likely to go at all. So I got up with the sun, lit out from our hotel, and encountered a park entrance a few blocks north. While it was as enjoyable a run as I had hoped, the thing that stood out most was that there were some really foul stenches emanating from that place, in addition to the nice natural smells.

The Purple Tulip, a Turkish Delight

An interesting note about tulips: They were first introduced into the Western world via the Ottoman Empire (modern-day Turkey). This and other photographs of tulips and various other flowers can be found in the gallery, Flora.
