Parktown: Olson Park, Part 2

Olson Park, North Campus

For this week I wanted to emphasize how much the landscape changes during this time of year. Taken at the same time of day in Olson Park, the foliage has begun to fall, the tall grass has browned, and the sky is overcast. However, life still persists right beside the trail and into the forest. This time of year marks the loss of summer abundance, yet there remains a beauty to be seen in the grays and the browns of dormant flora. One of my guiding principles for this blog is to capture Ann Arbor as we see it through its transition into different stages of life. Beauty can be found at every stage. Rather, it is more subtle at times and comes to you with a deeper appreciation of diversity of a fall or winter landscape.

I look forward to the leaves falling further.
