We went from shirt sleeve days to cold, wet October snow virtually overnight. I am posting this about 24 hours after shooting the image. The sun has just come out and the snow is already starting to melt.
Washington Park, located in a quiet neighborhood south of downtown, is one of Denver’s many green public spaces. It’s gotten downright fallish since this photo was taken a couple of weeks ago. It’s unlikely there will be more days like this one in 2012.
Almost everywhere I go in Denver I encounter beautiful urban landscapes with family homes at the center. Houses of the sort pictured here and the neighborhoods in which they exist in the US are simply not to be found in Chinese cities. Chinese urban landscapes are radically different visually.
For most Americans, I suspect photos of houses are hardly remarkable and not very exciting. But I am still seeing my new surroundings through the lens of China. Though my eye will probably become jaded in another few weeks, today I continue to find Denver’s urban landscapes fascinating.
