Even though I travelled all over Oregon and California during 2011, taking over 10,000 photos, one does not necessarily have to travel far from home in order to find interesting shots. All of the pictures in this album were taken not only in Albany, but right here in my own neighborhood.
Twice in the month of October I decided to take my camera with me on my daily (Oregon weather permitting!) one-and-a-half-mile walk around the neighborhood, just to see if anything would catch my photographic eye. I was surprised by how many scenes did grab my attention. It doesn't hurt that there is a swamp on the edge of the neighborhood, complete with wildlife. In this album, I've gathered the best of these photos.
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)
