The Gates, in the rain.

Yes, there are a gazillion websites out there with pictures of Christo and Jeanne-Claude's The Gates. But are any of those pictures taken by a crazy person who decided to check out the Gates in the rain? I think not! It was rather difficult trying to hold a camera steady with one hand, while the other one held the umbrella to keep one's precious hair dry. And I was soaked and cranky after walking through the park, but seeing that I'm not going to return to NY before it's over, it was worth it, I suppose.

It's too bad, even in the rain, the gates were super-orange (so NOT saffron), which my camera couldn't catch accurately. But can anyone explain the significance of these things to me?
