I had decided to return to my ole’ play area when I was a kid growing up in Hamburg for some Fall color. The area has changed quite a lot since my younger days. Gone is the large empty area that was once just filled with black Coal dirt from the river near-by. Back in the 1950’s this was a bleak area where nothing grew or lived. There was no walking/bicycling paths. Nothing. Even though there was nothing here, it was a fun place for me to play in. I have many memories of this place, that I see but others do not.
Looking at the place from a different view. Up to the left of the image is what remains of the old train tracks that once hauled Coal to Philadelphia and surrounding areas.
During this time of the year it gets rather pretty here. Lots of yellows, greens, & reds.
During the Winter months when in snows a bit, this place takes on a different kind of look. The white of the snow that clings to the trees is always nice to see. However, walking back this far when it’s so cold is something I would have a problem with.
Thanks for stopping by.
