The Changing Seasons: January 2015

Cardinal Guzman shares some stunning photos with us and has come up with an interesting challenge. Each month we are to post a gallery of photos taken at the same location thus showing readers the changes that occur throughout the year. I decided to photograph a location I pass everyday on my way home.  The park is a place I have spent a lot of time at: watching my children play no matter what the weather and reading in the sun during summer. It is a place I no longer frequent but I always enjoy seeing the children at play and hearing the sounds of their laughter.

These photos were taken on Saturday, 17 January at 3:30pm. The low temperatures do not encourage play and readers on the bench and the park looks a little desolate at the moment. The grey skies and winter-bare trees add to the sense of desolation. In a few months, though, the place will be filled with bodies and the voices of children.

  1. Seems like time has been sped up.. God says He’ll do that… but, it really seems February, and March weather has already hit where I live… maybe tomorrow is April?
    Great post.


  2. I so miss going to the park! When Hallie was younger, we went to a certain park almost every weekend. We would swing together and run through the tunnels, down the slides, cross the monkey bars and we would laugh and chase each other. I have tons of photos, some of which I’ve posted a while back. I long for those days to return. She’s 15 now and feels too old for the park but perhaps once Spring arrives, I can talk her into at least the swings. 😉

  3. When winter just has the cold temperatures and no snow, it seems to drag on! At least the snow can serve as a natural playground for many! You’ve captured the desolation of the season quite well. The lack of sun is the biggest challenge for me.

    1. My girls enjoyed going there every day when they were younger. We spent many pleasant – and yes cold! – hours there.
      (My challenge now is to showcase the park in a different way during the cold month of February 🙂 )
