a little color in a grayscale snowstorm (updated)

. . . 

With a full gray cloud cover and steady snowfall, it wasn’t easy finding splashes of color early this morning in the Stockade.   As the slideshow below shows, however, a trip to Riverside Park along the Mohawk River proved rewarding.

At a little before 8 A.M., my camera and I shared Riverside Park with two “free-range” doggies and their mistresses (who shall remain anonymous).

. . .

On the way back home from the Park, I came up Front St. and stopped to photograph a couple other Stockade icons.

If you like the colorful Riverside Park playground and lovely bare limbs [on trees] as much as I do, I think you will enjoy the Slideshow.  For a larger version of any of the photos in the Slideshow, click on its image in the Gallery at the bottom of this posting.

update (Sunday Feb. 27, 2011): a few more photos taken this morning at the tot lot have been added to this webpost between the Slideshow and the Gallery.

  1. Enjoyed the photos very much.

    Thanks, David.


  2. Hi David – your pictures really show the snow day. Beautiful!! I am sure that I am probably [not] the only one that thinks snow in its first snowfall is beautiful. Thanks.

    • Thank you, Yu, and Connie. I think you might have left a “not” out of your comment, Connie, so I added it in above. Many things look a lot better covered with new snow — especially, old snow.
