photography and the landscape

Monday, May 31, 2010


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.

a stop at the Siesta Motel seemed like a nice diversion from the humdrum doldrums of the working man....

Botanical Gardens

Botanical Gardens at South Park is always a treat, inside the dome or on the grounds.  The cactus room in the dead of winter should be on your list of  "musts" to combat the winter blues

the road less traveled is filled with many treasured places  well off the beaten path.  Park Ridge Music is an oasis on that road, where you may enjoy exceptional coffee, fine music and the musical expertise of Frank Gerard.
