|Amy in disbelief, Central Park with the New York skyline in the distance.|
A few days ago I planned a last minute picnic for Amy and myself in New York City. The weather forcast was for a beautiful spring day. I easily convinced Amy to take the day off work and we caught the train into Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan. We strolled the streets of New York to Central Park, one of our favorite spots in the city and wandered the walkways and paths through beautiful spring blossoms and fields of daffodils. Quite surprised by the business, we still managed to find a quiet spot near the boat lake and bridge. Atop a big rock I set up our picnic of ham rolls and chips proceeding to take a knee and flip out the ring and ask Amy to marry me.

Conveniently being surrounded by 10 million people there was likely to be someone on hand to snap a few photos of us in the moment. Just after I proposed, I saw a guy framing some shots of us and a few minutes later he came over and asked if we just got engaged. He was a Aussie working in NY as a professional photographer and was out in the park on assignment to take 'Springtime in Central Park' photos and saw us. I guess he thought we fit the bill. We got his card and he emailed us half a dozen shots, one of which he edited and put on Instagram (Insider Images).
