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...
