Good day and howdy doody everyone!
Before we get into the first series of posts celebrating Indian Summer/Autumn in Newington, I would like to announce a slight formatting change. Because I don't have a lot of photo discs on tap for the moment (currently, one developed, one waiting to be developed and one that still has photos waiting to be created), I decided to change the current posting pattern of 5/6/5/6/5 (27 pics per disc) to a new posting pattern of 4/5/4/5/4/5 (27 pics). For you that means six weeks of fun as opposed to five weeks of fun. For me, it means that I can stretch things out until the finances improve to the point where I can pick up a few more disposable cameras on the cheap.
And now, on with the show. Today's post kicks off a new category called, "The Neighborhood", which is pretty much self explanatory. But for those of you who may be new readers of this blog, you should know that one of my favorite places to photograph, no matter what the season (Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter), is my immediate neighborhood and Cedar Mountain.
So without further ado, here is The Neighborhood.
This is looking towards the center of the previous shot, southbound. To your left is the back end of the town green, to your right is the local plaza that features Quest Diagnostics, Rite Aid, Subway, Starbucks, Mojo Tanning, Cozy Nails and Stretch's Pizza. On Saturdays, which is probably when this photo was taken, the street is usually jam packed like this, with people either on their way to a sporting event, fishing, or out to the country for traveling and visiting the countryside, or the fairs and festivals. About where I'm standing is where I usually cross the road on my walks from the center, which is due to the fact that it's easier to cross two lanes unimpeded than it is to cross five lanes. And you can see how the leaves are starting to turn all kinds of nifty colors.
Not entirely sure as to why I took this picture. Well, I just went back to the picture disc in question to see what I took after this photo, and unfortunately for me, but not for you, there was no discernible logic or method to my madness as to why or where I took this picture. So I guess we're gonna wing it for a caption.
I took this picture because I saw that the lawn was such a nifty shade of green, especially since we had a distinct lack of rain this past year, so I figure I would take a picture of this nifty looking lawn. As a bonus, I got a good old American flag flapping in the wind. And as another bonus, I got some nifty shrubbery in as well. Ain't it purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrty?
