As I look back at photographs, I periodically find one that strikes a chord. On some mystical level, gates, chain link fences and concrete find their way into my view finder. There are a cornucopia of objects in the images, even padlocks clicked shut and locked, show up in the oddest places. In this example, which was captured near Furnham Blvd. & Tifft St. at the extreme edge of the preserve, the simplicity and patina of the seldom, if ever used gate looks more like an invitation then a barrier..

Not having been to the park in a bit, I ventured there today. The park keepers happily cleared some of the paths and laid down some cedar chips along the creek bank, extending a trail that they opened up last year.You can now walk the creekside from the Green Bridge all the way to Cazenovia Street on the Abbott Road side of the park.
