Through Boyd Park up the stairs and across rt 27 there is an abandoned walkway along the river. This walkway may have been abandoned by mainstream society but the day I walked down this path it seemed like a sanctuary for folks living a less “mainstream life”.
As my partner and I decided to walk the path we never knew we’d end up on a field trip to a different world. I decided not to take pictures of the family bathing and washing their clothes in the river, the artists painting the concrete walls or the mattresses placed under the underpass for shelter. Although these shots would have painted a clearer picture of the abandoned resources being used by folks living on the trail I felt it to be an invasion of privacy. Below are some images of trail and the art on the trail walls.
We are all interconnected. We all share this planet and the resources offered by it. I hope this trail continues to offer sanctuary for folks.
I am extremely passionate about sustainability, queer culture, fashion and environmental issues and their intersectionality with each other and business. I’ve spent the last 14 years working in the corporate world and I’m now dedicating myself to applying that knowledge to these passions. This blog is a space for me to explore these important issues and to start conversations with others.
