It’s cold outside, so instead of bundling up and facing the elements, I wandered through the building where I work. It’s an old warehouse that once held the John Deere factory.

Wednesday, Um, Walk

Right now it’s 12 degrees, and honestly, that would feel warm compared to the -4 this morning. needless to say, I didn’t go for a walk today.

I totally spaced that my eyes would be dialated, and I’d have really no idea what was in the viewfinder of my camera. I took this shot from in front of my car in the parking ramp. It looks a lot better now than when I shot it.

Today I took a 10 minute break from the office and went on a short walk around the neighborhood. I was inspired by Anna’s Photo Meet up and Jen’s photos of New York City. I hoped I would fine something inspiring right outside my door. I was right. I did.




* Something new to The Write Ingredients (TWI). I’ll walk on Wednesdays and post what I find the next morning.
