The Dogs of Central Park

Meet the four-legged friends who frolic, walk, and romp in New York City’s biggest playground. Fran captures these playful creatures throughout the seasons in their furry splendor as they delight in the natural wonders of New York’s biggest green lawn. There’s snow-loving Lenny, an elderly Golden Retriever who was born in Austria and has traveled the world with his owners, an opera singer and his wife. Charley is a Standard Poodle and a certified “Delta Dog,” doing volunteer therapy at Mt. Sinai Hospital. And there’s Daisy—a mixed breed with piercing blue eyes who hails from the Bronx and to whom Roberta Flack once stopped and sang “Daisy Daisy”—exudes cool as she relaxes on a bench. Calmly mugging for the camera, displaying panache and flair as they pose in front of Bethesda Fountain or Belvedere Castle, these urban sophisticates are all adorable prancers who make it clear that New York City is their turf. Whimsical, humorous, and genuinely endearing, The Dogs of Central Park is a unique love letter to dogs and to New York, and is a wonderful souvenir for tourists and dog lovers alike.

Part of the proceeds from each book purchased directly through Fran are donated to animal rescue organizations. Bulk orders may choose which rescue group they would like the donation to benefit.

A Personal Renaissance-Limited Edition

Since the day she first picked up a camera Fran has had a passion for capturing the beauty of this world in her images. She has always been drawn to the light, captivated by how it touches… whether delicately or dramatically… everything around us, creating dimension, enhancing texture, and bringing color to life. Blessed with a vision, her art brings the world to us as evocative studies of light and shadow.

As a means of staying true to her art, Fran nurtures her passion with a periodic “journey of discovery” to a place she’s never been to before. In the fall of 2006 her journey took her to Italy, an amazingly beautiful place… as you’ll discover within the pages of this book. Each book in this limited edition is signed and numbered.

OK, after hours of trying to create a “view your shopping cart” button I’ve discovered that PayPal and Word Press work about as well together as the Democrats and Republicans. The simple way around this is to click on the “Add to Cart” button again and then edit your quantity. Make sure that you are ordering the quantity you want of each product that you are ordering. You can finalize your payment from there. I apologize for the inconvenience, but this is technology for you.I thank you in advance for your order. Orders=gas money=Journey continues. 🙂
