Half Way Up – January Squares

thanks to Becky B for hosting January Squares, https://beckybofwinchester.com/2021/01/28/square-up-28/

Yesterday I went back to High Park to get in some more steps. I had to make a delivery to a friend who is in a downtown hospital so I decided to drive home along Bloor St and stop at the park for a quick walk. The walk ended up being a lot longer than I meant it to be and I had to make a decision at some point as to whether take a short cut back to the car or go the long way round. The short cut involved taking that huge stairway up the hill that I posted about near the beginning of this challenge.

In the end I decided to take the stairs. About half way up I stopped to take a picture of my progress. When I finally got to the top of the stairs I counted 90 steps.

I climbed up the first set of stairs but I thought twice about taking those steps in the second photo. Instead I opted to walk up the road a little further down the path.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Vanishing Point

…thanks to Cee for hosting The Fun Foto Challenge

The vanishing point is where the road ends at the horizon, or river, pathway, row of trees, or anything else that gets smaller the further away it is.
