Central Park 05

Piece description from the artist

The Gapstow Bridge in New York's Central Park on a foggy September morning.

The Gapstow Bridge can be found at the north end of The Pond and was built in 1896 and designed by Howard & Caudwell.
Central Park is one of the most visited urban parks in the world with over 40 million visitors a year stepping on its historical grounds. The park was established in 1857, the first section opened to the public during the winter of 1858, and it was expanded to its current size of 843 acres in 1873. The park's master landscape architect was Frederick Law Olmsted, also known for Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, Belle Isle Park in Detroit, the Midway Plaisance in Chicago, and many other landmarks. Central Park is considered to be the world's most photographed park.

About Ashland Thomas

Chicago, IL

Ashland grew up in Southeast Virginia surrounded by lush rural landscapes, great protected swamp lands, national & state parks, the Chesapeake Bay, the Eastern Shore, the breathtaking Skyline Drive & Blue Ridge Mountains, and the inlets & oceans of Virginia & North Carolina.

It was this constant variation in natural beauty that first drew his eye to the camera; that, and the constant joy of capturing life's candid moments on film. Although no particular subject is banned from the lens of Ashland's camera, it is landscapes, cityscapes, wildlife, and nature that truly captures his heart.

"There's always more to see, more to learn, more to be wowed about-I just hope you enjoy what I see in the world."

A constant staple on the likes of Instagram, Flickr, and Facebook, Ashland currently resides in Chicago, Illinois, and looks forward to many more years of development, collaboration, creativity, world travel, and art.
