The Art of: A Neighborhood Walk


We don’t live in the quietest neighborhood, or even the safest, but we like it. This past Saturday we decided to go for a walk (I wanted to pick some fresh lavender I knew of). Armed with mini scissors, a tiny paper bag (both for the lavender), the camera and an open mind we headed out. It was brisk, but nowhere near full-on cold (it is California after all).

Mystery Stuff

Scary Palm

It’s a small palm tree!
Palm 2
All of this beauty and wonder of nature in a four block radius! Sweet! Who knew? I encourage everyone to take a short walk in their neighborhood sans the iPod and just see what’s around. You’ll be surprised!
