I shamelessly stole this off of guest photographer John Brandt’s Flickr page, because his shot of the path back to Riverfront Park is so pretty. Okay, technically John gave me permission to use any of his Flickr photos, but whatever. Thanks, John!
File this under yet another thing I had no clue about. Guest photographer John Brandt posted this photo on his Facebook wall, and casually mentioned it was part of an old community pool at Pioneer Park. I had no idea there was ever a pool at the park. He said there used to be a changing room there as well. The slabs still there and the sidewalk that connected it to these stairs.
Thanks, John, for educating me yet again, and for letting me share your photo.
And by the way…
This here little photo blog is officially nine years old today. I absolutely could not have done this without my guest photographers, so I want to thank each and every one of them. There are too many to list by name, but please check out the guest photographers tag to see what has been submitted over the years.
(Social media peeps click through to see all the photos!)
Yesterday was a fundraiser at Pioneer Park to help secure some matching fund grants for improvements to the park. Local band Never2Late performed, there was face painting and balloon animals, hot dogs, and raffles to be had. Below you’ll find photos of the various activities, people, dogs, etc.
The trees in front of the Jordan Bridge at Pioneer Park are finally in bloom. I was afraid I’d miss it, since it’s been raining off and on, but I was happy to see them yesterday when I went by.
Now, if only they’d move those darn trash cans out from in front of the bridge, I’d be a happy camper. So would my friend, Maryann, whom I ran into yesterday while taking pictures.
Guest photographer Maryann Nielson made me one very happy camper by getting these photos of the albino squirrel at Pioneer Park. I first learned of his or her existence last month when Terri Jo Adams spotted him from a distance.
This is so cool. See Maryann’s second photo below. Thanks, Maryann!
Look at these trees! They come up out of the ground with their bark and their branches, and they’re so green and brown and stuff. They’re so tree-like, in the sense they are trees, and not just like trees.
Honestly, I have no idea what I’m writing here. I’ve posted a lot of tree photos. Probably these very same trees, which exist at Pioneer Park. So coming up with a caption can be tough.
