Park Scene

This is Lincoln Park about a week ago, with still a lot of yellow in her early leaves. As far as parks go, it's not large and meandering but interesting with angled walkways, stone pillars, black iron fencing all around, benches about, a stone water fountain for cooling off in the summer heat and plenty of shady trees. No wonder it's a pretty popular environment for small fairs and festivals and the like. On early mornings like this one, you've pretty much got it to yourself. You can stop by, grab a bench and watch and listen to a city waking up. It's a good thing to do!

  2. I love watching and listening to a city wake up (if I wake up in time to do so).

  7. I agree with you. There is something special about being in a park early when you can have it all to yourself. Lovely photo

  10. What a charming place and idea. Wherever you live, there is probably some place to do this. You have to be able to get up and out early to enjoy the solitary pleasures of the beginning of the day. Not all of us have such self-discipline.
