All these photos were taken by me.

The brown stone fence that creates a barrier between me and the park. Rusted benches placed strategically along the sidewalk. There’s a performing area for the summer concerts. There’s baseball fields and soccer fields. There’s secret paths that lead to different parts of the park. There’s even a boathouse. Prospect park a beautiful place to go anytime in the year. In the summer children and adults let the dogs off leash for a decent amount of time. Kids running and shouting after each other. Stopping for a refreshing drink. Adults sitting on picnic blankets basking in the summer sun. Then fall comes along kids still go outside and enjoy the crisp air. The leaves turning from green to beautiful shades of red, orange, and yellow. Then winter comes along and rips the leaves away from the trees. Winter’s snow comes and covers the park in a white blanket. Children come during snow days to go sledding or build snowmen or have snowball fights. Parents stand and freeze while their children have fun. Then there’s Spring when the snow melts and rain comes. After the rain the flowers start to grow, trees get their leaves and more people are in the park. While the seasons may change the park doesn’t.

Dear Juilian:

I like the way you took these photograph of “A Path,” because of the way the weather was like when you took those photos. It dark and gloomy which I like.

One part of you photo stands out to me is where you took the picture of the leafy road. It’s interesting because it reminds me of where I live where it’s not packed and is cool.

Another part of your photograph that stands out to me is those steeps a very unique perspective of taking the picture.

Your photograph reminds me of where I live when it stops raining giving the same vibe your pictures gave to me.
It’s a unique vibe that only some people like where it’s quite yet spooky at the same time.

Good looks keep doing what you are doing. I look forward to what you do next.

Dear Jillian,

I am intrigued by your photograph, “A Path,” because I am always in Prospect Park. It is where I grown up and spent most of my life. So to see the park from this perspective is crazy to me because I’ve never seen the park like this.

One part of your photograph that stands out for me is where you show how gloomy and misty it was. I think this stands out because it gives of an eerie vibe, which isn’t something you’d think of when you hear the word “park”.

Another part that I like is where you took the picture of the steps. This stood out for me because I’ve been on those steps before so you made them look different to me since I’ve never seen them in the rain. Also, the angle you took the picture at, creates an optical illusion.

Thanks for your photographs. I look forward to seeing what you make next, because clearly you’ve shown that you are an excellent photographer.

Dear Jillian :
I am fascinated by your photograph, “A Path,” because of perspectives of each photograph\

One part of your photograph that stands out for me is where you took a picture of the stairs. I think this is interesting because you chose to take a picture from the bottom of the stairs rather from the top and it make it look very high up.

Another part that I really like is that there is no one there it is empty. This stood out for me because where is there that there in no one at in NYC it always packed. This creates a spooky vibe and the fog too.

Your photograph reminds me of a place I once went once. It was a park in Jersey, and it was in the morning it was empty and it was a very spooky vibe. I was think were is everyone it was almost scary as I was alone and I was always think something or someone is going to come out of nowhere.

Thanks for sharing your photograph. I look forward to seeing what you make next, because this one was very intriguing
