Back to the Park in the Hood

I introduced the Park in the Hood here. That was almost 3 years ago since that post. The park as I mentioned before is down the hill from my house. I pass by it each time I need to go somewhere - work, church, grocery store, etc. And yet I don't go down and enjoy it as much I should or want to.

On the first day of this year we went back and took photos. The sun was out, but it was a very chilly day.

The dome is the centerpiece of the park. It's a favorite spot for wedding photos. I have seen people do yoga, some just chill there.

People feed the seagulls and the ducks. You see little kids and their parents feed the birds with stale bread; others bring bird seed.

The patterns on the water were very entertaining.

And for the first time I have noticed the newcomer, which later on I found via google that it's a green heron.

One more look at the beautiful day.

Fog started to descend as we walk to car to call it a day.

  8. A beautiful post. You certainly took advantage of the all the features the park has to offer for photographers. Sometimes a place doesn't have to be very big to offer a lot of variety.

  9. That is a pretty park - I'd certainly enjoy spending time in it if it was near me, as would my furry friends.

  11. A green heron! I have seen white and grey herons but never have even heard of a green one. WOW. And this is a good example of what's in your own backyard...and how that's often the place we never really spend much time in! Brava.
