I think I’ve mentioned before that there have been fish breeding ponds in Forest Park since the late 1880’s - an attractive place for many of the birds as well as other pescatarians. Between the stream that runs nearby and the fish ponds are the bicycle and pedestrian paths, and on a day such as today, no rain, a pleasant weather sort of day, there are bound to be both cyclists and pedestrians filling these paths.
I took the road less traveled by, and walked around every thing between Grand Drive and Forest Park Parkway, just to make an inventory of what was there. The trees quite fascinate me. The shape that different trees assume, influenced, of course, by how much free space they have, is attractive to me. Rendering their presence well in a photograph is the hard part, though.
Still, I try, and wandering in the late afternoon light, I seek the new and different as well as seeking a new and different way of looking at the old and familiar.
