often when i post nature photos i receive comments from friends exclaiming that they are not as "outdoorsy" as me. this makes me smile, for while i do love nature, i am really a city girl. and as an urban lover, one of my favorite forms of "nature" is the city park.
i can recognize that no park can compare to the beauty of truly being "out in the wild," yet i adore the juxtaposition of beautiful trees and plants with tall building peeping through. central park in manhattan is my favorite example. above is another great example from the lovely parks in palermo, buenos aires.
and here is a wonderful little city park near the fancy shops in recoleta. the roots on these trees created wonderful patterns and the branches looked perfect for climbing.
my only complaint about the parks in buenos aires were the swarms of mosquitos who seemed to enjoy our blood as much as we enjoyed their country's wine.
have a great monday! i'm off to the post office via my favorite quito park.
