The Central Park of the North – (aka Saturday in the Park)

Thompson Park Vistas

Sound far fetched? There may be a little more truth to this than we know. The famous landscape architect who designed New York City’s Central Park also designed Watertown’s Thompson Park – a piece of trivia that was given to me on two different occasions in the last few days. Who knew? So last Saturday morning, I woke Scottie up at 5 so we could behold the wonders of Frederick Law Olmsted with our very own eyes. Scottie only agreed to get up if we could dedicate at least a small part of the morning to a round of golf, which was perfect considering there is a lovely 18 hole golf course right atop the hill. Unfortunately for Scottie, there was a tournament that day so he was turned away to play another day…and I skipped back to the car. With the golf plans on ice, I got to spend a little more time frolicking around and photographing the lovely scenery and seeing all the park has to offer. Thompson Park features beautiful views of Watertown, picnic areas, playgrounds, a public pool, golf course and zoo, and plenty of shady spots to lounge with a book. For more information and to see some really cool old photographs and post cards of the park visit: http://www.watertown-ny.gov/index.asp?NID=472

Time-Lapse Trials

I have been experimenting with Time-lapse photography for the last few days, and I thought I would share a few of my trials. These were shot around my neighborhood, in Sackets Harbor.

Here is the time-lapse film I shot of the sunrise this morning.
