The blog header image is from a sketch by Alice Webb of Central Park in New York City. This view is toward the northeast from the Belvedere Castle, in Autumn as the leaves were just beginning to change colors. Central Park was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux in the late 1800s. Olmsted is known as the father of American landscape architecture, and designed many parks, public spaces, and academic campuses throughout the U.S. and in Canada.
