It has been a while since the last time I shared with you what I saw at Brightwood Park. I want to thank you for your concerns about where I was and why I disappeared. I was away for the entire month of November, with 4 days in San Diego for a conference on Immunotherapy of cancer and the rest of the month in Taiwan. I missed you, other neighbors and friends, and of course, Brightwood Park. The park was entering full-blown foliage when I left and all the leaves were on the ground by the time I came back.
It took a while for me to go over the photos I took in late October and early December, and pick the ones for sharing. Here are some of the transition from fall to winter.
We had a mild Fall this year and the foliage took place in slow motion. I was a little upset to miss the best part of it. On October 20 I tried to record a few colorful scenes. If you have better photos, I would love to see them.
Being away for a month, I saw a dramatic change of colors in the park. After coming back, the only colorful objects I could find were the fruit of oriental bittersweet plants. I took a photo of the winter moon and was curious whether the black spot was from a flying bird or a bug.
I am a frequent visitor of Brightwood Park and enjoy sharing my discoveries.
Brightwood Park is on the North end of Prospect Street. Go past Franklin School and look for the entrance on the left.
