A few scenes from my neighborhood...

Went for a walk Thursday here are a few shots I thought were pretty good!



I had to put my hand though a hole in a fence to get this shot...what I really wanted to do...was go in and walk in the woods! Next time I'll find an opening.



I think the color this year is phenomenal.



This is in a cemetery not too far from my house.

Check out more photos over at candid carrie for Friday foto finish fiesta!

I Love your pictures! I wish I was there I would find a hole in the fence with you...I've always been a rebel!

Very cool!

Lovely photos! I love the colors of Fall, too!

I hope the walk was relaxing & refreshing. I'd have looked for a way into the woods, too. The only thing that bothers me about a walk like that is the mosquitoes. This time of year they aren't as bad, though.

Very nice! You clearly live in a lovely area...

And I am truly glad that you are making some time for yourself and enjoying the fall.

Walking can be so refreshing and grounding... Keep these pictures coming-they are great shots!

I'm so honored, you put me on your blogroll! The problem is that it doesn't update. According to that I haven't blogged in 3 weeks. Does ANYBODY know how to fix it?
Thanks again!
Glenda

Beautiful... a lovely place to take a walk to give your brain a break. Hope you're having a nice Friday!

You should put your pictures in a calendar and sell it. The shots were beautiful.

Yes, Kalamazoo - there is really such a place! We lived there for the last 5 years... where did you grow up? Did I read you are in the Midwest still too?

I am back on the east coast now. I didn't think much of Kzoo while I was there - it was nice & pretty, and flat, made two best friends there - but now that I am gone, I realize how nice and quaint it is. Glad I got to live there... but teaching JH English in the 'hood in Kzoo was a TOTALLY different story!

If I lived there I think I would walk a lot more than I do. Simply beautiful!

Nik said...

What beautiful sights to see on your walk! Those are great pictures!

You know - I take my camera everywhere with me - but I don' take it on walks....I might just have to start!

I read your comment on Ronda's blog about The Shack. I just wanted to tell you that I had a rough time of it also. It did get better, and easier to read.

I hope you are able to finish it! It really is worth it!

Hi Carey -
Hope all is well in MI this fine morning. I just added you to follow on my blog, but I had my other email signed on and not my blog one (long story). Anyway, I showed up as a blank face and then again as the 'real' MommaRitz. Make sense? I will try to figure out how to delete the no-picture one from my end... I hope I didn't mess you up. If you are able to delete, please feel free to. :)
