Weekend in NYC

My fiancé and I recently took a 4 day trip to NYC for a quick getaway.  Prior to leaving sunny California I checked the weather forecast for the city and saw that rain and cold was expected.  What surprised me when I got there was how little I minded the weather.  One day it rained the entire day, but we bravely set out with oversized umbrellas, and walked across central park from the upper west side, to the Metropolitan Museum of Art on the east side of the park.  It was magical.  The colors reflecting off of every surface of the rain-soaked city became a cornucopia of imagery.  For the first time in a while I was inspired to shoot, just to shoot, but I didn't have my camera, so I joined the world of "phone-photographers" and set out to document the day.   These are some of my favorite rainy images from the weekend:

The day after the rain we woke up to a very brisk 34 degrees, but bright sunshine.  Once again we set out into the city, this time in Chelsea, and these are the images that I came away with:
