Morning Walk

I took my camera out this past weekend and visited a new neighborhood. Saw this on the ground as I passed our clubhouse, hope it was a fun party.

These made me sad:

So pretty:

This is Rooney. He’s 14 and dealing with senior citizen issues with eyesight and balance. He staggered over to me and I swear, tried to give me a hug. So sweet.

Some of the streets in this neighborhood back up to woods. I saw what I thought was a large dog bounding toward me in someone’s back yard, but realized that it might have been a deer bounding away from me. Either that or the dog had a very odd gait. It was gone in a flash but I couldn’t have gotten it’s picture anyway, it was too far for the reach of my lens. So you’ll have to take my word for it.

What is this? Delphinium?

I love balloon flowers. I tried to grow them as a border in one of my beds but I think the voles got to them. I’ve lost many things to those damn voles.

This guy was just let out of the house as I walked by. He wasn’t about to come any closer.

I almost stepped on this guy. He was in a big hurry to get somewhere. Probably out of the middle of the street.

What is this called?

I’m not sure a front yard vegetable garden would be allowed in my neighborhood and I wondered why they didn’t put it in their back yard. They have a back yard. Unless the back is too shady and the only sun is in the front. I hope they share with their neighbors. Or other interlopers walking around with cameras.

I love clematis. I’ve been trying to grow Jackmanii on my mailbox post but it just doesn’t thrive. I had 3 plants to start with, only one has survived. It blooms a little but is terribly straggly. My plan is to dig up the soil under the mail box (it’s full of construction gravel), filter out the rocks and plant more clematis. Maybe it just needs more attention than I’ve been giving it.


It amazes me that cactus grows here. I don’t find it at all appealing, wonder what this homeowner sees in it? Maybe they’re from Arizona and homesick?

Hmmm, I’m pretty sure this would be a no-no in my neighborhood.

These trespassers are in violation of the sign. If only they could read and obey the rules.

I had plans to walk across the boulevard to another neighborhood in search of white squirrels, but I felt the call of Mother Nature and got home just in the nick of time.

It was looking like a perfect morning for a walk with my camera, so I put on my walking shoes, grabbed my iPhone so I could listen to an audiobook and run my walking app and headed out. It was perfect! Wish we had weather like this every weekend.

I took a new route and here’s what I saw along the way:

 

Four miles and one blister later, I’d say it was a good walk!

Morning Walk

I took the new lens for a walk around my neighborhood this morning.

So far so good, as far as lens quality. However, this is a heavy lens. I don’t know that it’s appropriate for a walk around the neighborhood.

Morning Walk

Had the dog along with me which is always a challenge because he’s so excited to be walking with me that he constantly tugs on the leash.I didn’t have an unlimited amount of time for the walk, so I took a route that is about 3 miles round trip. It’s not very a very exciting route, but I found a few things to shoot.

Morning Walk

I’ve gotten into the habit of taking my camera with me when I go for an extended walk around the neighborhood on weekends. I don’t walk as much as I should, my excuse in the past was that I was hitting the YMCA several times during the week on my lunch hours. But work has gotten a lot busier this past month and I haven’t gone to the Y one time! Yikes, I just now realized that it’s been a whole month!

At any rate, I thought this might make a good series, I try and change up my route a little each time to give me new things to photograph.
