Not so long ago

During this crummy winter week, I've been trawling through my photo archives and reliving summer.  I came across these shots from last June that I never got around to posting.

This is Christo flying past 1 World Trade on a hot and hazy afternoon.

I shot this from Avenue B & 9th Street.  He is flying southeast, probably over Houston.  Unfortunately, I couldn't get the whole building in the frame, but at the time, I was pretty excited about this.

And here he is flying past the Woolworth Building.  I think the building on the left is the perpetually-unfinished hotel at Orchard and Houston.

Earlier that same day, Dora flew circles with a kestrel over Tompkins Square.

Christo, coming home.

Currently, the hawks are busy building their nest. I've been out there over the last few days to see them, but the weather has made taking pictures difficult and it's not been very fun slogging around the park in the slush.  More interesting updates to come...
