I have been taking pictures of the park and surrounding urban area as a wildness/development contrast, looking especially for quirky shots. This doesn't have a lot to do with the theme of the blog, but it's fun.
I'm presenting part 1 of the photo essay here I am also working on a photo essay on homelessness, but that may take more time.
A neighborhood grocery about a block from the park.
This grocery/cafe is typical of the relaxed atmosphere in the surrounding neighborhood.
One of the two bridges over the park, this one is reserved for pedestrians and bicyclists.
A stairway down from the picnic area to the trail area.
A side pond.
A tree fungus.
Under one of the bridges.
