Neighborhood Explorations

I continue to hike and explore the neighborhoods around my home. Some people come out their homes wondering what this stranger is doing. Though I am missing the wild settings of the mountains and hills, I am discovering some amazing photos in my neighborhood.

Below is my favorite of the last few days. On this day I was taking photos of roses in the shade. Within a few minutes, I noticed the sun was about to peek out from behind the edge of a house. There were a few seconds when the sun had not yet fully emerged, yielding a soft light. Once the sun was out, the moment was gone.

Emergence into the Light!
Buttercup Rose
Sunlight Rose
Old Man and the Sea

I found this sculpture of the man in a boat in a rock garden. I extracted the subject and placed it on it’s own background. This sculpture makes me think of Hemmingway’s “The Old Man and the Sea.”

You can see the rest of the photos here. I have been editing the previous linked collection, so click through to see the old and new.
