A Photograph for New Year's Day

(The full-sized original is here.)

I took this picture a year ago, on January 1, 2010, about half an hour after the picture that I posted on Christmas. It feels as if I took the picture yesterday. It shows the parking lot of the swimming pool at Cameron Run Regional Park in Eisenhower Valley. Before I took the picture I walked around the edge of the pool complex. It was closed for the winter, locked up and abandoned. I went back there in the summer and the pool was open and bustling with people. Now it is locked up and abandoned again. And soon it will be open and bustling with people. One is spurred to consider how fast time passes.
