It's winter enough that being outdoors for long periods of time with the camera isn't too appealing. I know people go to Iceland, Antarctica, and a host of other places with snow and winter weather, but at the moment where I live the winter is visually boring, and drab during the few hours a day when I actually could make a photograph. So...I've been looking through piles of older negatives for ones that I've not gotten around to assessing, and what's below is one of them. It' was taken in a park that has gone through a major renovation, and this view is no longer there. It seems to be a sad symptom of what we in America all too often insist is necessary to justify the expense of rehabilitating a public space, that it be given a purpose which, in rural areas, is usually sport related. So, here is a scene gone by.
