Another year has arrived, and so I begin the sixth album of photos from my neighborhood with two cats sitting on their master’s car. The orange cat is the same one that I took a picture of about two years ago — see The Cat and the Buddha.
As I browse through all my neighborhood pictures,
I am amazed at the wide variety of beautiful shots I was able to get right here in my own area, all within easy walking distance of my house! The wonders of nature are all around us, if we will only take the time and effort to open our eyes and see.
Even if I didn’t take pictures anywhere else in Oregon, just these shots taken around the neighborhood would in and of themselves make a decent photographic portfolio! It just goes to show that you don't have to travel long distances or spends lots of money to have fun with photography and get satisfying results!
Don't miss the neighborhood photos from other years, presented in a wide variety of albums:
In addition, you can see all of my neighborhood images together in the Neighborhood (All Years)
