Where the sidewalk ends

It's Round Robin time again, and the topic du jour is Backyard Photography, from Tammie Jean of Long Drives to Nowhere: "What I like best about backyard photography (or photography at the local park) is that you don't have to go very far to get great shots - there are plenty of opportunities right there in front of you."

So here ya go: a foggy October morning here in the neighborhood, on the path between the parking lot and the soccer field. This is part of the recreation complex for the development, more or less across the street from us. Which would make it literally "right there in front of me," huh?

I haven't been through that little path in years, and I was surprised at how much it's grown over since then. And I don't recall ever strolling around the neighborhood in the fog at 6:30 AM before today. It's amazing what this little photo challenge can get a person to do and see. Thanks, Tammie Jean, for the topic!

Thanks, everyone! Your encouragement and kind words really keep me going.

And hi, Gattina... my own back yard is such a painful subject that I don't even want to go back there, so I went with the "photography at a local park" part. Plus, this path is part of the commons area owned by all residents, so technically it's still my yard. ;-)
