Photo Series 3: Analog/Reality Prospect Park

20190324_170312

Unfortunately, I hold long-term disappointment in Prospect Park, Brooklyn’s signature park.  In summary:

The parkk wasdesigned and executed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux shortly after they finished Central Park in Manhattan.  150 years later, it is the shabby step-sister of Central Park and I always leave wondering why.  Countless fallen dead trees, crumbling sidewalks, garbage, inadequate restroomso and riginal structures slowly dying, many unused, abound.

There are some renovated and well-kept areas, but so much work remains to be done. However, Prospect Park does provide an interesting place to take photos of things that are in a state of decay, a recent passion of mine!

All of the photos in the post were taken with my Fujifilm Instax Sq10 camera, and then printed.  I then took pictures of the prints to retain the analog quality, rather than downloading the images from the camera’s MicroSD card.
