See The 'Hood With New Eyes

The world is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.
Bertrand Russel

One of the new assignments I'm working on is to see the familiar territory of your neighborhood with fresh eyes and then take photos of it. Just a short walk away from the condo where I live is a bike path that leads to a grassy tree filled public park. I often take Bella there. Today was a 72 degree day with a beautiful sunset. The park was full of giggling children, other dog owners and just the usual people out gathering every moment of sunshine they could from the last of day. While there were many things I could have shot, it was these light poles of the tennis court that caught my eye and seemed to have a majesty one wouldn't have expected from such utilitarian objects.

To paraphrase a quote from a recent commercial, "What's in your neighborhood?"

Just because I'm a Baroque girl at heart and the music seems to fit the spirit of today;
Bach, "Brandenburg Concertos No. 5 -i:5"
