I hope my various photo “tours” the past 4 or 5 weeks have brought some distraction and enjoyment into the lives of those of you who may be spending more time at home than you’re used to. [To exercise my brain and test my memory, I’m going to try to list my posts (in no particular order): Buffalo-Erie County’s botanical gardens (I was scolded for originally referring to this wonderful place as “South Buffalo’s”); the Seneca-Iroquois national museum in Salamanca; WNY clouds; Rochester’s Lilac Festival 2019; Beaver Meadow nature preserve; and, the one I, frankly, didn’t initially remember, Buffalo’s Outer Harbor.]
This time, I’ve decided to look for the lovely, serene, or just interesting (at least, to me) right in my own neighborhood (which, fortunately, includes Cazenovia Park, one of Buffalo’s Olmsted jewels). My home, built in 1910, is on Oschawa Avenue, a one-block long street that awkwardly straddles the Buffalo-West Seneca border. I’m just two doors down from Indian Church Road.
I headed out for a walk early on Sunday morning, May 3rd, with my smart phone in my pocket (it usually remains behind on my desk). I was pleased that this lovely sight greeted me when I reached Indian Church Road:
As I headed the four blocks down Indian Church toward Seneca Street, a number of spring time images caught my eye:
But, as always, it was Cazenovia Park that captured my imagination.
And, in case you’d like to hear the rushing waters of Cazenovia Creek, here’s a short video:
It was time for me to head home. Hopefully, you enjoyed these images from my Sunday morning stroll (prior to the arrival of restless Buffalonians, donned with masks and exhibiting various efforts to maintain social distancing). Please let me know if you’re inspired to head out your front door in search of what’s inspiring in your neck-of-the-woods.
With All Due Respect,
