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!
