Alone in the Park

My sister was going to class, and I had a bright idea.  The park is pretty close, so I figured while she was patiently suffering a monotonous lecture, I’d have fun snapping some pictures.  It was 9am, and I walked around for maybe 20 minutes before I decided I didn’t really like being alone.  So I went in the library, sat down to check up on some gluten-free books, and an hour later headed back out when there were mothers walking with their kids, and a lotof dog owners with their dogs.  But as long mothers are around, things feel quite a bit safer. Yay.
T’was a good thing indeed that I headed back out when I did, for if I hadn’t I would have missed that cute, furry little squirrel.  I got pretty lucky.  I saw the lil guy munching away on whatever it is that they eat, and I inched closer, and closer, and closerr, and he stops to stare into my eyes very suspiciously.  I stop and stand still, and he goes back to munching happily.  Good to know there are creatures out that don’t perceive me as a threat.  Squirrels are smarter than some humans.

Weedy Mess

If you didn’t know better, you’d most probably assume that this yard has been abandoned due to the owners having moved away or been on vacation or something.  I’m not sure how and why the weeds have the insane ability to take over the yard in a pretty short period of time.  But that’s life, as they’d say…

Lakes, Streams, and Waterfalls

Ombu!

The rays of the sun manage to peek through the giant.

Imagine having a tree house up there.  But we’re not monkeys, so no.

Whoa, the mighty roots.

Standing on the roots, and lookin up.

Something tiny.  Wonder how long it will take to grow up.

A Fallen Orange

If I had the energy of a child, and of course be that carefree, I woulda run across.


Valencia oranges.  One fell.  I didn’t touch it.
