I'd like to find a good-quality, high-resolution photo of Christo's The Gates project in NYC.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
Jason

I was going to go take some photos today How high a resolution were you looking for.
I'm going to use a 4 MP camera 2304x1728. I'll post a link later if you want.

You're the man! I need at least 1280x1024, so what you take will be fine. What you need is a helicopter to get panoramic shots from above.

i gotta say it,


looks like a giant construction site...
(maybe i just don't like the orange color)

still, anything that sweetens up the city is worth something...

Thanks very much.
I took around 130 pictures they tend to look alike after a while.

I was like one of 10,000 people who had a camera with them. It was nice, felt like I was doing an excercise in composition for one of my classes.

Christo is tough - I am not a fan but his scale is always impressive. That much orange is kind of funny but again so were the pink islands - scale is everything and he wins.

nice shots dggraphics!

true - but $20m would buy a hell of a lot of food for kids orphaned after the boxing day tsunami, too. guess it's a matter of priorities.

exactly how off-topic are we by now?

You're not.

I've seen the Sistine Chapel, toured most of the rest of Europe, etc. I know what art is.

This ISN'T it....
