Thought I'd try a black-and-white edit of the sunbeams in the park. I kinda like it!
Some cities around here have closed parks outright. Others have closed playgrounds and anything else with shared equipment, but open areas at many parks are still, well, open (for now), as long as you keep your distance.
Geese at the amphitheatre.
This city park has a pond which attracts ducks, coots, seagulls, and as near as I can tell a permanent flock of Canada Geese that wander around the banks of the pond and the open space at the south end, where these terraces are located.
Let’s just say I don’t think I’d want to sit on the ground in that part of the park.
Rocketship park (one of very few remaining parks with this sort of climbing structure). I stopped to grab coffee and realized I’d been able to see the shopping center from the park…so it stood to reason I ought to be able to see the park from the shopping center.
I think the #BlackAndWhite version works a bit better on this.
Photo taken at: Polliwog Park
Apparently Polliwog Park doubles as a flood control basin. We moved to the area at the beginning of the drought, so it never came up before (so to speak). It was on the way to work,and the storm had moved on, so I stopped to take a look.
Description on Flickr:
I slowly crept up toward the seagull hoping to get a photo of it perched on that pole, but it calmly turned around and flew off. I thought I’d missed it when I snapped the photo, but it turns out that I’d caught it just unfurling its wings.
And yes, the water really is that green. Ew.
