Day 773 “This Seat Is Taken”
Final shot of the Franklin Park Golf Course Area.
William J. Devine Golf Course at Franklin Park was established October 26, 1896 and is the second oldest public golf course in the nation behind Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx borough of New York City.
William J. Devine Golf Course at Franklin Park is the place where the leading figures of golf converge in history: The player who won America’s first professional match became the first head professional here (Willie Campbell); the youngster who ushered the American game to the forefront of the world stage honed his craft here (Bobby Jones); the world’s premier golf architect re-designed the layout here (Donald J. Ross); today’s reigning threat on golf’s all-time record book gave a clinic to neighborhood kids here (Tiger Woods).
I want to take this moment to thank you all for supporting my 365 project. When I began this journey 260+ days ago, I was sure I would not be able to identify enough photographs to fulfill my promise of posting a new photo every-single-day. When I reached 100 photos, I looked back in shock and realized I had surprised myself. When I reached 200 photos, I began to wonder if I would be able to find another 165 subjects worthy of your review. At 250 photos, I realized that I wanted to make sure I completed my commitment to both myself and my public statement about 365 photos. I began to think about where my lense was searching for meaning and how that connected to my personal views of the world.
As I complete the final 100 days of the 365, I am pleased to share a sneak preview of my next project: The Pillars.
Please join me for an exhibit of select photos from my 365 Project “The Pillars”. The show runs from October 1 – November 21, 2012 and the reception will be held on October 17 from 6pm – 8pm at United South End Settlement.
