I’ve wanted to post a photo from this series1 for a while now, but thought it best to wait until it was actually winter before I depress everyone. This photo above doesn’t necessarily hold any sentimental meaning for me but I do quite like it. And obviously, the 147 people who have viewed it on flickr agree2.
When I look at this photo it reminds me that I don’t walk around my neighbourhood enough – I see people’s hosues while I’m driving by but its not the same. When I was living in Dublin, I had to walk through my entire neighbourhood since I didn’t have a car and I miss it. I miss walking by people’s houses, and people working on their yard or even just coming home.
I don’t know if I will do this more often, especially in the winter, but I hope I do. The problem is that there is nothing near my house to walk to. There is a park that I can walk through but there aren’t even any swings in it. Its just a dog park, and across from it is a field that people use for soccer with electrical towers across it. The closest mall to me isn’t that great3. I could walk to Wal-Mart, but I’ve decided to boycott the place even before the trampling incident. So I go to Loblaw Superstore instead, but there is no way I could walk there.
If I’m determined enough, I will get to this though. Its just a matter of convincing myself that I want to.
Do you go for walks? Even in the winter?
