Pic(k) of the Week: Dead end for tiny park

Dead end for tiny park

Lanier Gardens Park, Decatur, Georgia. 4 February 2019.

Not much of a park, at a fifth of a mile long and a few yards wide, and this ignominious end along the side of a road. Not quite a garden(s) either, unless a few shrubberies comprise such.

That being said, the bricked sidewalk and pleasant landscaping were suffused with the warm glow of a winter 'golden hour.'

As the late, great Hall of Famer Frank Robinson (1935-2019) once said:
When you come to the end of the road and it looks like there's an obstacle there to stop you, just take the time to look on the other side. There're better things there.

  • In this shot, I experimented, just a bit, with HDR (high dynamic range), a photographic look currently in vogue. Thus, after the fact, I brought the sky highlights 'down' while bringing the foreground shadows 'up.' That was not exactly what my camera 'saw,' but, as is the idea with HDR, it was more to what my eyes actually saw.

  • Pic(k) of the Week: one in a weekly series of photos taken (or noted) by me, posted on Saturdays, and occasionally, but not always (as is the case today), with a good fermentable as the subject.
