A mixed day in the park, the last day, really only talked to three people, two use the park for their horses, one to remind me of his polical allegiances.
It a wee bit cold and damp, but still the lake is tranquil, and it is good to be out in the landscape.
Met a great man. Tells me that trains ran through the park, that their was a high wire that ran from the clay quarry through queens park to the brickworks!
There was an outdoor school for sick childrenvno the site of the model railway and a pond full of gold fish and carp.
Now though, he says, its much cleaner.
An idea of space, how important the sense of space to people in the park is. From young people to old. It
s thinking space.
I spent monday sorting out Lucy’s work for corporation park and trying to work out better ways of uploading lots of content to the App. Aslo watch and cut p Lucy’s videos interviews with people who use the parks and their was some great information in there. Emma is a star! and her interview is great. It really shows her love for the park and it was quite moving.
Also editing together Lindsay’s Cyanotypes that she has made by herself and with people from the park to make them ready for use in the App. If you Want to see the full size images of this then you will have to download the app and go and find them. The content is becoming really exciting, and going out and finding them definitely be worth the effort.

The Millions of trees that have been planted , their vision and ideas for the park along with their hopes and worries for the future of the Park.

I met an Older man who had come to the park to walk and to photograph the trees as they turned to their Autumn colours. He brought out his camera to show me the beautiful images he had taken.
