Once upon a winter's morning...in Instagram

Winter here in New York can be many things, especially at House Party HQ located on the beautiful Hudson River. Some days it's socked-in with wind and sleet or under a foot or more of snow. This year, however, things have been a bit milder and on this particular morning it's a somewhat balmy 50 degrees. As I rode in on the train, watching the dense fog slowly shift along the river, I couldn't help but imagine I was traversing the Scottish or Irish countryside. What can I say? It prompted a much needed winter photo care of Instagram! The unmistakable New York City skyline that can typically be seen in a photo looking in this direction is nowhere to be seen. As I snapped a photo for our @HousePartyFun Instagram profile, all that could be heard were the occasional quacks from the local ducks and the water lapping at the river's banks.

A peaceful moment of solitude here at House Party indeed. Are you on Instagram or thinking of joining?
