Is there anything better than a sunny park on an autumn day?
Now that the worst of the summer heat has burned off, I’ve really started to enjoy taking the dog on daily strolls through our neighbourhood park. Patterson Park in Baltimore is not only sizeable but also contains so many amazing fun features. There are sports fields, a pool, a duck pond, a dog park, a charming fountain, and a lovely pagoda.
Last Sunday, the promise of fall was carried through the air on the first of the dropping leaves and I sensed a bit of magic at the park.
It was my first time oot and aboot with my new Fujifilm X-A3 camera and, though I’m still learning how to make the most of all the amazing features, I was so happy to be able to capture a few moments of that lovely autumnal alchemy.
Like this rainbow in the fountain.
The Patterson Park Pagoda is only open to the public on Sunday afternoons – and only until mid-October – so I was delighted to finally be able to catch a peek inside, where I was greeted with more flashes of colour.
The Pagoda is home to gorgeous stained glass that casts the most enchanting reflections all around its interior.
Catching the colour in unusual places made me feel, for the first time since moving to Maryland, like there is going to be plenty of beauty to discover here.
I mean, we all know I left my heart in Halifax and surrounded by the nautical charm of Nova Scotia, so it’s nice to see that I’ll be able to capture some equally unique and lovely moments while I’m here.
In the meantime, I’ll keep my eyes open and keep searching for more rainbows.
Stay tuned for more posts as I continue to chase beauty with Fujifilm.
