Mary Dennis ~ Little Blue Park

I think what drew me to this little blue park was the humorous convergence of reality with the "painted on." I'm not sure if the muralist intended it or not, but I love that zone at left middle where the fake tree and the real tree meld together. I've shown this image to several people and many of them have said that it looks like good usage of a very small urban space, but the park actually made me feel somewhat uneasy. Maybe it's the odd, unnatural color of the painting and the way the light hit the walls and bounced blue all over the place, but mostly it feels like a sad attempt to replicate something that has been lost or is fading fast.

This image was shot with a 2 megapixel, fixed-focus, setting-free Rolleiflex mini digital camera.
