The Log Cabin and the Jones Street Footbridge
Some final photos from a late December walk in Omaha’s Elmwood Park. I already posted a set of photos from a frosty Christmas walk through Elmwood Park. The photos here were shot several days later when the low-hanging, late-afternoon sun cast long shadows and bathed trees and buildings in a warm yellow glow. Oh, and regarding the above photo (and one below), check out these recent posts in Miss Cassette’s excellent My Omaha Obsession on the same subject: Mysteries of Omaha: The Log Cabin and the Jones Street Bridge (part 1) and part 2.

In addition to sanctioned urban art in the park exemplified by the above photo, local kids have kept alive the long-standing tradition of decorating the environs underneath the Jones Street bridge with graffiti and creative urban art, especially on logs around the trails underneath, as I commented on the above mentioned My Omaha Obsession post.
Graffiti also shows up in the tunnel under the stone bridge in the Elmwood Park Grotto. But I believe such tunnel art is ephemeral because the City routinely paints it over (not a good backdrop for all the wedding photographers who pose wedding parties in the Grotto).
