My image archive was in desperate need of some organizing and pruning, and a bitterly cold, snow New Year’s Day was the perfect time to do it. The job is time-consuming, but it is a good way for me to take stock of where I have been and what I have done during the past year.
The renovation and dedication of the Depot in the Park was one of the most fun and satisfying series of images that I made this past year. I remember photographing the old depot when it was moved two blocks to Lions Park about six years ago. The boarded up structure sat empty for six years until the fall of 2012 when demolition work and reconstruction began. Through the spring and summer the transformation took place, The work was completed and the building dedicated and opened to the public on June 29.
