Images From The Hood

I thought it would be fun to take a few photos while out on my errands.   It was about 5:30 p.m. and as you can see the darkness falls early at this time of year.

It was the warmest temperature on record today with a comfortable 14 degrees Celsius.  The next few days it will cool off by a few degrees each day until it hits a low of 4 degrees Celsius (a few degrees cooler than the norm) on Saturday/Sunday.

A garbage can and a recycling bin side by side and a girl waiting for her bus.  I don't know how often the can are emptied.  I think a lot  depends on the weather too & what people are eating/drinking as they walk along the streets.  In summer months the cans are overflowing.

I always like the look of a bike sitting against a post or a tree awaiting the return of it's rider.  In this case, I think he was in the  barber shop getting a hair cut.



 I snapped the tree and I'm surprised it turned out. In fact I'm surprised any of these photos turned out because I took them with my camera phone.  




I even got some fairly good shots of the moon. I plan to post them on Friday for Skywatch. Until next time, keep smiling!

  1. Gee its getting cold at your place. Winter is coming on and that yellow tree is so pretty. I have had problems with my cookies on this puter, so have been unable to write comments. Than God it is now fixed.

    1. Thanks so much Joy. I was struck by how golden the tree looked as I walked by and that is how I came to stop and take a few photos. I'm glad you liked them. I'm savouring all the "warm" days we are having now. Hugs. xx

    1. Aw, Joanne, it will be a few months now before your leaves return. We still have a few left but whenever it rains, a few more flutter to the ground.

    1. It sure does. I remember as a child it got dark even earlier. So eery to go to school or work in the dark and return in the dark.

    1. Hi Joy, that one will show up tomorrow. I accidentally had it published for a few minutes (ahead of schedule). Sorry about that. Hugs. xx

  7. I like posts like this, it's posts like this that keep things real and down to earth, and they make me slow down and really "see" things... you know? Instead of just flying by and not appreciating the every day... as I like to say... "Slowing down and enjoying my journey", because it's all about the journey right?
    I'm so excited to be paired up with you for the Christmas ornament swap!
    Much love,
    Tammy

    1. Thank you, Hannapat. Every now and then I like to take photos of a moment in life. This helps me to see life as it happens rather than just let it pass by unnoticed. xoxox
