Syracuse in Bloom

>> Sunday, April 8, 2012

My husband works in Franklin Square in downtown Syracuse, and every spring I vow to capture its magnificence.  Several years now I have missed my opportunity, but this year, finally, I made it there with camera in hand on a gloriously sunny spring day.

I believe the trees are Bradford Pears, but I could certainly be wrong about that.  Whatever they are, they are intoxicating each spring.  And the surrounding architecture has a great deal of appeal to me too, being old industrial buildings that have been restored and converted into offices, commercial space, and a great number of upscale condos.  I happen to think Franklin Square is a wonderful example of what CAN be done with old industrial areas.

I hope you enjoy the show!

Oh my word. Lovely. Thanks! There is a square - Wooster Square, in New Haven, CT - lined with cherry trees - similar show. I haven't lived there in years, but ahhh, fond memories.

Lovely! I particularly like the first photo because I can see just how dense the blossoms are on that street.

DOOD! You've outDONE yourself. To quote me (alone, save for kitties) after each shot: "Oh!" "ach!" "woo-hoo!" "woah!" "jeepers!"

=) SO very glad you made it this year, for lotsa reasons. GOOD ON YA! =)
