Aberdeen Avenue runs perpendicular to our street. I can see it through the window from where I usually sit. It meets Danforth Street at the other end and continues into a short dead end. Most of my short walks in that direction start on Aberdeen Ave., and I might take a right or a left on Danforth St. depending on how long I may want to walk. None of them are too long anyway, and the neighborhood is pleasant and flat.
Take Short Walks to See
At the mini four-corners of Danforth and Aberdeen, there is enough wild vegetation to keep me busy for a while. I have shared some spring and summer views from that corner where the vegetation seemed to grow tilted to one side. During my last walk, I took a right as I had noticed a fallen tree in one of my previous short walks. It forms the diagonal of a rectangle of my photo frame, a lesson in geometry. In the same area, there were several trees that reminded me of a cluster of people at a cocktail reception.
Continuing on Danforth St., I arrived at North Country Club Drive and took a right, but only after photographing the tree, decorated with large scale ornaments. The street was quiet, as one of the photographs will show. But, a few more steps later, I saw the treetops that were like torches. The setting sun lit just the tops for a string of redheads.
Soon, after a short walk, I arrived at the corner of our street, Spring Green Road, and turned right. After photographing the sky, lit by the setting sun, I returned home. But, on the same street, I took other photographs on previous walks that you will see in the gallery below. They are abstracts with motion-generated colors and lines, even a shaky mini bottle. Two consecutive photos show the effect of moving the camera in different ways while facing a scene.
Several photographs in the collection will take you on a different route but still in our easy to walk, quiet, and modest neighborhood. The Asbury United Methodist Church is a landmark, and I like its simple and clean lines. Also, the fact that Jan’s parents were the first couple to get married in its then newly finished sanctuary makes it special.
Come for a short walk with me. The photo captions will help with the tour.
