a week of walking

[Day One in case you missed it…]

Day Two

Cold & rainy.

My car is in the shop today, only a mile from the office. The mechanics are kind enough to drop me off before work, and while I could ask for a ride later from my coworkers, it is only a mile…

I don’t take any pictures on my walk today. I leave the office that evening hoping to beat the next burst of rain and not wanting to risk it with dawdling (happy to say that I avoid the rain, and the car is running fine).

Day Four

It’s cold today, the bleakest day of the week by far. I stay inside until it becomes apparent that the weather won’t be improving, and it’s now or never.

So I walk.

I don’t see my cat friend today, but I am watched carefully by a mockingbird.

I struggle with inspiration on the gray days. I feel like the light is flat and uninteresting. So I decide to play around a little with the exposure on my camera…

I quite like the results.

I walk a different route today, but the neighborhoods are all connected so I eventually loop back around to the familiar.

And a new cat friend.

Weirdly enough, I’ve walked far more around my office neighborhood than around the one I actually live in. Maybe I should fix that tomorrow…
