Boats stacked up together on the dock add some color to the winter landscape.
It was sunny yesterday and I decided to go for a walk in the park to find some shadows.
I entered the park near the flower garden. The garden plants left standing look lovely in the sun.
Of course, I couldn’t ignore the way that the snow settles on the trees. I really enjoy the little details found in nature.
In the middle of the park, there is an old fence. I like the way that nature grows around the fence to reclaim the space.
I didn’t see any interesting shadows until the end of my walk. Then I was thrilled to see this pattern from a plastic fence. Polka dots on the snow.
I saw the daytime moon this week, and for some reason, seeing the moon during the day makes me feel lucky.
In the summer, these two fish are part of a sparkling water fountain.
In the winter, they just look frozen.
One day when I was out for a walk, I discovered these high-rise apartments for the birds.
It looks like they are just waiting for when the song birds return in the spring.
I wonder if any birds will choose this place for their new home.
Today I went out looking for the plants of summer that remain standing through the winter.
I found these vines on top of the fence that surrounds the community garden in my neighborhood.
I like the way these vines wrap themselves around the fence. I like how they tangle themselves together.
In order to focus more easily on the tangled lines, I changed the original photograph to a black and white copy.
I like how the trees, fence and vines have been reduced to a series of simple lines.
One of the things I like to do in the winter is to look for bird nests in the trees.
This bird nest recently caught my eye. I noticed it when I saw the blue ribbon flying in the wind.
My guess is that the nest was built by a robin. It is fun to imagine the robin, months ago, flying through the air with the ribbon in its beak.
The white on top of the nest is snow. It is a good reminder that the photo was taken on a cold day in January.
