Sunday In My City...And Yeah, I Know It's Monday...

Over to the right there, where the Prompt Me header lists Magpie Tales and Haiku Heights, I've added a new badge:  Sundays in My City.  The idea is to take photos of your part of the planet, sharing your Sunday with others doing the same.  I really liked that, so thought I'd give it a try.

It would be nice, though, if I actually lived in a city.  Were I still in Seattle, or Edinburgh, no problem, I could share all day and well into the night.  But here, in the backwoods of southern Oregon?  Not so much.  Still, I'm going to give it a shot, though maybe not every Sunday.

Course, right off the bat I missed posting the Sunday part of this exercise, but only because I had other things (Ozzy's birthday and the Max haiku) to write about yesterday.

So, here are a few shots of a Sunday walk through the grounds at the VA where the boys and I go every weekend because it's quiet and peaceful, and the complex is beautiful.

The main hospital building.  So very imposing and Thomas Jefferson-like.  (I actually took this photo last Summer, though it was a Sunday.  That still counts, right?)

Each of the buildings has a different window architrave, though my favorite is this spiderweb design over the entrance to the Business Office...

Last Saturday, I took a shortcut through the buildings because the rain went from drizzle to downpour in a nanosecond, and it was the fastest way back to the car.  As we came around a corner, an intriguing manhole cover caught my eye at the edge of the path.  The next day--yes, Sunday--I took my camera.  What an artistic and unusual cover: A salmon and dragonfly...go figure.

Okay, this might have been a poor start to a Sunday In My City post, but it was my first, and as the weather improves I should be able to wander about more, do some exploring.  However, I live in a very small town, so I guess my mission will be to expand my horizons, look for things that aren't obvious.
Like art in a manhole cover...

  1. Are you kidding me? This is not a poor start at all. I like the manhole cover. Oh, and you are totally welcome to post later than Sunday. I leave the linky open for a few days because who needs stress on a Sunday?
