A WALK ON LABOR DAY

I’ve been feeling better of late. Life is back to as normal as it gets for me. My new meds have left me nauseous and the dry air has kept my allergies irriated but I had wanted to get out and take some photos this weekend.

I went for a walk around the apartment complex to stay close and reconnect with the area around me.

My street was nice and quiet.

This photo illustrates just how desperately most of Texas needs rain. Trees are dying. Yards are drying up. Lakes, streams and ponds are so low.

I found a friend in a patch of flowers.  The wind (leftovers from Tropical Storm Lee) was gusting so it made it difficult to get this guy to hold still.

This feather was so blue in the sun and I wanted to illustrate that.

I love taking photos of flowers and I love Lightroom presets.

I was amazed at how much trash litters the sides of the streets here.  In the dry grass I found lighters, cigarette butts, napkins, a half eaten hotdog and several broken reflectors. I feel like doing a PSA for not littering and not starting fires in this dry grass with cigarette butts! People are careless.  Way too careless.

I walked for about an hour and that felt good.  No sunburn (I have my brain back so I remembered my sunscreen) but I’m still sneezing. I don’t know what’s in the air today (not moisture, that’s for sure).  It was good to get out and take photos though. Hopefully this is the catalyst for things to come.  Time to get snappin’!
