Depot Park after dark

No matter how often you’ve walked Depot Park, it never grows old. This is especially true during the holiday season when the very trees themselves are wrapped up like glowing presents and the woods take on a magical cast.

Seriously, if you haven’t strolled Depot after dark during this time of the year you are missing something special.

Both sides now.

Lights over water. And a noir look around the coffee truck.

A lone reader in the pavilion.

Lines, shadows…and arcs.

Don’t know why. But I had this eerie feeling I was being watched.

Wheels within wheels within wheels.

I believe this is where Bogie met Bacall.

Don’t ask.

Starry, starry night.

In case you’re wondering, everybody’s inside watching football.

What’s that old Gainesville slogan? Oh, yeah: Every path begins with passion.

A sometime journalist who used to string words together for a living before I retired to run a non-profit cycle touring organization that will henceforth go unnamed, as I have subsequently retired from that career as well. I write a bi-monthly column, theater reviews and an occasional magazine piece for my old newspaper. If I still had a business card it would read: Ron Cunningham: Trained Observer Of The Human Condition. Because like The Donald, you know, ego.
