because all of my site documentation was 50% site and 50% fall foliage, i went back this weekend to take some more pictures. as expected, the bare winter trees allowed for more unobstructed views of the existing buildings. however, i was surprised how different the square felt without leafy trees. the space was less broken up and there was more of a sense of unity, like maybe it could actually be an activated urban space.

view from the hill behind the community center. you can see the school and church in one shot.
