Scene at Washington Square yesterday, empty at that moment, except for a lone guy walking around the Fountain and I Love LA mug left behind.

Okay, yes, I think we’re all ready for shots of the Park bustling with signs of springflowers, people, the Fountain ON, people frolicking IN the Fountain (and, of course, the redesigned Fountain area is not open – yet), performers, dogs, squirrels, birds, eccentricities… – that’s coming.

But a thank you to Juggler314 for posting the first entry into the Washington Square Park Flickr Photo Pool … This great shot of the Park’s chess tables covered in pure white snow (’08). Read more about the new WSP Blog Flickr Pool option here. Submit your photos and tell your friends!
