Livingston Park Grand Opening Pictures



After eighteen months of planning, fundraising, and construction, the newly renovated Livingston Park in Long Beach finally opened last week. Nearly 1000 people attended the grand opening, fitting for the project which was a real community effort (lead by the dedicated Tot Lot Committee). It was so fun to witness our neighborhood come together in support of children, family, play and community. We are thankful to be a part of this community.









I don't think it was planned to have the local flock of parakeets fly over just before the ribbon cutting, but it was so fitting - like releasing doves, but with a sound that foreshadowed the children at play.

Hi Jeremy,
I am catching up on your blog. I just read the one about being too busy to blog. I understand. That is why I haven't been able to swing by your blog. I have so many that I love to read, that I sometimes loose track of them for a while. It's beginning to be a bit overwhelming.
But, while I was here, I just wanted to tell you how much your work inspires and excites me. Your photographs are wonderful. I love these ones here at this post. That one of Ethan, and the birds. I was moved to tears. I know am an emotional person (just ask your wife!) but I am not trying to exaggerate. You just capture these moments and I am transported there. It is amazing.
And even if you don't manage to post that often, I'm glad when you do. Thanks.
