I took these three photos of Baringer Hill in Cherokee Park this afternoon. Louisville, Kentucky has a great public parks system designed by Frederick Law Olmsted (1822-1903), the father of American landscape architecture. Mr. Olmsted is most famous for designing Central and Prospect Parks in New York City. Baringer Hill is a popular playground for sledders, children and dogs and is at the summit of Cherokee Park so you can look out over the trees at all seasons of the year.
Last year for the First of the Month photography meme I focused on Kentucky skies. The idea is that we look at our surroundings and record the changes from month to month. The host for this meme is Jan at Murrieta 365 . Here's how it works: "The goal is to capture one thing repeatedly on the first day of each month. It can be a landscape, a person, an animal, a project; whatever your focus is fine. It can be a record of where you are each first day of the month." This year I decided to photograph Olmstead Parks here in Louisville.
