Park Photo Project

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I have been participating in a photo project originated by another photographer on Blipfoto.com. She was motivated by a book published in the early 80s entitled Blue Moon over Thurman Street, a collections of photos and related poems by Ursula LeGuin and Roger Dorband. As a result of her enthusiasm, many other Blippers* have selected one street in their community as a focus for their journal entries on Blipfoto. Because I rarely do street photography but take photos almost daily on the trails in Chagrin River Park, the park has become the locus for my project. My hope is that anyone viewing my blog will gain an appreciation of this special place. Here are a few of my keepers for today:

* Blippers are photographers who post a picture each day in their journals at Blipfoto.com.

Paul, a retiree, and his dog Murphy are trail monitors for the park district. They put in a lot of volunteer hours walking the parks and helping visitors.

That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will come back another day to see more photos from this special park.

  1. Your One Street is unlike all the others and is, I agree, a special place. On this day of great sadness and mourning, it is wonderful to see the beauty of your “street” and to feel your passion for this place that gives you nurturance.
