Today I decided it would be fun to share some photos from this afternoon, rather than go through the photo archives and post about ages-old adventures–hence the lateness of this post. It’s that time of year, when university students have moved out or are in the process of doing so. I must say, in the last couple weeks, this area has gone from peaceful and quiet to Arts Festival hub to peaceful and quiet again. (Just wait until mid-August, though… won’t be so tranquil. But by then we’ll have continued our travels anyway.)
Dad had to stay indoors and work, so Mom and I set out on a little adventure, trying to combat the heat. The weather here seems to be all over the place. The evening before yesterday, there was a flood watch in the area. Last night it was freezing. Now it’s hot and sticky. Guess I’ll never understand the climate. 😛
In the photo above I was trying to photograph an intricate little cobweb, hanging over a bus sign. It was so perfect, but the camera on my phone just wouldn’t focus. At least it got a little bit of a reflection on the mini masterpiece.
That wasn’t the only interesting we saw during our walk…
Mom has officially dubbed this as “Couch Pickup Day,” because of all the furniture on the curb. I mean, LOOK at the number of couches on that one sidewalk! Six, excluding all the other bits of furniture! There were at least five other streets full of neglected items; some for trash, others left for whoever had the guts to bring it all home. C
Most of them pieces were in icky condition… not too surprising. What was kind of shocking, was the fact that a couple blocks away, two undergrads stopped to look at some couches, and when Mom and I walked back through the neighborhood, one couch was gone! Can you believe it?!
There were plenty of amazing flowers around… not captured with the best image quality, though. I realize how many times I’ve neglected to actually get the camera in proper focus, as I’m in the habit of snapping a photo in the midst of walking, or don’t want to spend too much time on one thing or another. Sigh. Really should work on image quality, over quantity.
You knew the telephone wires would be photographed, didn’t you? 😉 (Just because I find them extremely fascinating… don’t know why, it’s just a thing.)
Now this is probably the reason you clicked on this post… when Mom and I were turning up the driveway, guess what we saw! A gorgeous little rabbit! And a very photogenic one, at that.
I stayed very still and snapped a few photos, two of which turned out half decent…
I swear, he didn’t move an inch while he was being photographed. (Or was it a she…?)
Well, that’s it for now! Tomorrow I’ll put together a compilation of all posts from July 2017. I will have to count the number of posts that are actually relevant to crochet, in some way or other… oh, well! Hope you’ve been enjoying these kinds of posts. 🙂 Until then!
