I have said that the landscape architect that designed the park was a genius, there you can see his vision. These palms were planted in the 1960s.
I can't wait to go back to the park, I will try to take Friday off so I can walk around without the millions of people running around.
Thanks Jenn for commenting on the picture.

Great photo, Marian. I really like how you caught the two men and the two trees paired and aligned. Monochrome is ideal here.

See? I didn't realize the pair of trees. I must say that I am as lucky as a cat.
I was standing there looking at the wonderful palms' trunks and knew that without someone there the shot was meaningless. And then, they came strolling, with those wonderful black and white outfits...I was ready for them to appear!
Thanks so much for your comment and vote Peter.

Awesome trees and concept, Marian.
A close-up of the bark might be interesting.
