exercise series, walking the dog

Walking the dog at Cleveland Park in downtown Greenville. This photo was taken by Denton Harryman.

As part of my exercise series (i.e. photos taken in motion while on a four mile walk through the parks in downtown Greenville) I’m sharing this photo showing a dog our for a walk with it’s human. Also I should point out that Cleveland park has a dog park . Note how green and lush the park is. Greenville has had a lot of rain this year.

exercise series, new foot bridge near Cleveland Park

A new foot bridge near Cleveland Park in downtown Greenville. This photo was taken by Denton Harryman.

Today’s photo is part of my exercise series (all photos in the series were taken in motion while I was on a four mile walk through the parks in downtown Greenville). Today’s photo shows the new foot bridge near Cleveland Park. This was recently constructed as part of an overall upgrade to the Swamp Rabbit Trail. I can attest that the trail is heavily used and much appreciated. Bravo Greenville.

exercise series, Swamp Rabbit Trail

The Swamp Rabbit Trail passes through the greenspace connecting Falls Park to Cleveland Park. This photo was taken by Denton Harryman.

Today’s photo shows the Swamp Rabbit Trail as is passes through the greenway connecting Falls Park to Cleveland Park. Note I also took a photo showing a young boy admiring the airplane monument which is along the trail in this area. The monument is in memory of Greenville native Major Rudolf Anderson who was killed when his U-2 reconnaissance aircraft was shot down while overflying Cuban airspace during the Cuban Missile Crisis. You may remember this previous photo I posted of the monument Dedicated to Major Rudolf Anderson Jr.

Note that all of the photos shared in my “exercise series” where taken in motion while I was on a four mile walk though the parks in downtown Greenville. I hope you enjoy the series. I had a blast taking the photos.

exercise series, foot bridge over the Reedy River

A foot bridge crossing the Reedy River in downtown Greenville. This photo was taken by Denton Harryman.

Today’s photo continues my exercise series (i.e. all photos taken while I was in motion on a 4 mile walk through the parks in downtown Greenville). This photo shows a foot bridge crossing the Reedy River. The photo also shows a heavy growth of kudzu, a non-native plant which is very invasive and if not fought will kill trees and consume homes. Also, I have provided this extra photo showing the fella in the river which you can also see in today’s featured photo. I really have no idea what he was doing. Maybe cooling off. It was hot.

The next few days I will share a series of photos taken while I was on a walk for exercise. This is not a photography technique I recommend because there is some danger of tripping and falling. Also the technique does not allow time for composition. Specifically all of the photos, in this series, were taken while I was in motion. Thankfully I have a stabilization feature on my camera. Today’s photo shows a jogger in the Falls Park. Plus I have provided links showing additional scenes which I snapped as I passed through the park; A lady relaxing on a blanket, also two ladies on a bench, and the underpass connecting Falls Park to Cleveland Park.
