Eastern Redbud in Bloom
This photo was taken in City Park by photographer Kathryn Charles in early Spring, 2015, depicting the sheer beauty and resilience of nature and the tenuous balance of preserving open space with urban expansion. Charles has been documenting City Park and City Park Golf Course in all seasons since 2006. Charles is a third generation Park Hill resident. Her great grandparents built a Denver Square home on Bellaire Street, and helped establish St. Thomas Episcopal Church on Dexter. Her photography interests also include public demonstrations and events, natural phenomena and sacred places. Her paintings of the Great Sand Dunes in Colorado are on permanent exhibition in the Lindsey-Flanigan Courthouse. She can be reached at email@example.com or 303-995-9100.
