Pat’s Walking Photos
Today’s Walking Photo: Today was more of a driving day than a walking day – we motored north from Victoria, B.C. to Parksville. After a long drive cooped up in the car, my sons were eager to let off some steam…and that led to this midair kick.
I’m amazed anew at the great shots you can get from the iPhone 5S.

Today’s Walking Photo: Sorry I missed yesterday, but I’m traveling right now and I just couldn’t get a photo posted. Today’s a different story, however. Look at this drama that I witnessed on a fire escape in downtown Victoria, B.C.! The dog wanted to catch the crow so badly, but that gap in the fire escape made it problematic. The crow knew this and was taunting the dog, edging closer and then moving away again. It almost looked like the crow was trying to shorten the dog’s life by tricking him into attempting that jump! It was fascinating to watch.

Today’s Walking Photo: Before playing with Lisa Mann at the Ilwaco Seafood & Blues Festival tonight, I went for a short walk and disturbed some seagulls.

Today’s Walking Photo: This made me think of a line in a song I wrote that goes, “Don’t give a toothless man no corn on the cob.”

Today’s Walking Photo: I feel like I’m having some kind of mental block, and that I should actually recognize this image as the logo of some company or product or society or game or something. Who can help me out?

Today’s Walking Photo: I’m not going to speculate even for a moment as to what this is all about. I just appreciate the thought and care that went into dressing up this little…whatever it is. And I put myself at considerable risk to get this photo, because this thing was lying in the middle of the roadway. I love the looks I get from drivers.

Today’s Walking Photo: Okay, but that “One Less Car” sticker…one more truck, then?

Today’s Walking Photo: This seems wrong. Is this wrong? It just looks, um…wrong.
(I particularly like the supplemental rope usage.)

Today’s Walking Photo: I couldn’t tell if this fell out of somebody’s lapel, or off a nearby plant. I looked and didn’t see anything that looked like it would bear these flowers, but we all know how meaningless that is.

Today’s Walking Photo: I came across the foil ball in the early part of my walk and I thought, “Hmm…it’s a good start.”

Then about a mile later I found the foil fragment and I thought, “Hmm…shoulda picked up that foil ball.”

Guess I need to start carrying a garbage/recycling bag with me again.
