I liked how you pointed out a lot of the differences between your own hearing and the recording. This just shows how powerful our brain is to drown out garbage noise and zoom in on more important things to you. Though hearing the recording really puts in perspective how many types of things we don't naturally perceive like you said.
I like the spot in which you chose to record; it lends itself well to having a lot of layers operating at several volumes. I love the moments in which both the leaf blower and the wind are audible. The bass sound produced by the wind complements the high pitch of the leaf blower nicely, though I'm sure that wasn't intentional. You said that you spent more time focusing on the subtle sounds in person, though the microphone didn't pick them up particularly well. Would you consider the voices a subtle or more prominent sound from your in-person listening experience? On the recording, it's more quiet than I imagine it was in person.
