Walking at Night – November 29, 2022

….darkness comes upon us as early as 5:00 and the days continue to get shorter every day

When I talk about walking at night, it’s more like late afternoon but it’s dark enough for the Christmas lights to come on. Today I received my new iPhone and I wanted to test out the camera. It has a few more features than my last phone but it will probably take me awhile to figure them out.


Thanks to Becky B for hosting walking squares. Hard to believe that there is only one more day left in this challenge. https://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/29/walking-squares-29/

Walking Squares. – Inflatables – Yes or NO

thanks to Becky B for hosting Walking Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/28/walking-squares-28/

As I walk through the neighbourhood I see more and more inflatable Christmas characters popping up on lawns. I can see how children might like them. They are rather whimsical and fun to look at but…..

…this is how it looks when they’re deflated

….many people don’t keep them inflated all the time. I’m not sure if it’s too costly to keep them inflated all day long but when they’re not inflated it looks like someone’s laundry has been strewn all over the front yard.

Walking Through the Subway – November 18, 2022

….thanks to Becky B for hosting Walking Squares https://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/18/walking-squares-18/

It’s not unusual to see birds flying over the tracks and through the tunnels in the subway but seeing this pigeon was a first for me.


Walking Squares for November – November 4, 2022

….thanks to Becky B for starting up the square challenge againhttps://beckybofwinchester.com/2022/11/04/walking-squares-4/

The theme for November is square photos taken while walking. Seeing that I try to walk every day this should be fun. The last few days have been very foggy.

This fog was a result of the cold ground, warm air and Lake air coming together. It lasted for days.
This new growth seemed to pop with the fog in the background
Looking up at the leaves of this gingko tree, it felt like the foggy background illuminated the leaves

Feeling Blue that this Challenge is Coming to an End

Here are two of my favourite blue shots that are now square.

Bright Square – April 18, 2021

….today would have been Mom’s 90th birthday

Thanks to Becky B for hosting Bright Square for the month of April.https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/04/18/bright-square-18/

A few days ago I posted a photos of my narcissus plants that were about to open up. I called it Bright Future because they symbolized the ongoing beauty that I should experience every spring from here on and be reminded of my Dad who recently passed away.

Two of the flowers have opened and the rest are taking their time but we’ve had a few cold days and I’m sure when it starts to warm up again the rest will follow.


A New Gnome to Brighten My Day

….I secretly love gnomes

Thanks to Becky B for hosting Bright Square. Every day this month we are encouraged to take square photos of anything bright. Here is my newest addition to my gnome collection and it is certainly the brightest one I have. I suspect after one summer in the sun it will fade like the others but that will just add to his character. https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/04/04/bright-square-4/
