Public Park, Private Garden by 

Small, formal garden in Roger Williams Park, Providence, RI (US). Just a few dozen feet from a very popular (and very historic) carousel, this garden was entirely deserted, except for a couple of geese and a swan.

I am an imagist with a fascination for seeing the extraordinary in every-day objects and sights.I still use film occasionally and still have a love of black & white photography.

    Barry, my grandfather Patrick, was part of the organized effort to create those gardens during the Work Progress Administration era.
