The Gates at Night

Under the Gates

Last night I went up to the park to check out the gates. Like the rest of the world I fancy myself an amateur photographer and took some pictures. Here’s one of my favorites (more like one of the few that actually came out in focus). So here you are. Hope you enjoy. There are a few more of my pictures of The Gates in this Flickr slideshow.

For those that don’t know about The Gates it’s a huge “art exhibit” in Central Park consisting of over 7,000 orange gates with hanging fabric. The whole thing supposedly cost the artists, Christo and Jeanne Claude, $20 million. For more info, check these sites out:

2. A great breakdown of just how the artists came to their $20 million price tag.
3. A satellite image of Central Park with The Gates.
