This is a path in our neighborhood that goes between streets. This is another photograph from our "Last Gasp" walk.

Sylvie49 capture image! from France

"madame promène son chien" : c'est ce qui me vient à l'esprit en premier en regardant ta photo, ce sont les paroles d'une chanson d'un grand chanteur belge que nous avons eu en France et qui s'appelait J. Brel.
" Madam walks her dog ": it is what what comes to me to the spirit in the first one by looking at your photo, it is the lyrics of the big Belgian singer whom we had in France and who was called J. Brel.

10 Dec 2009 11:02am

@Sylvie49 capture image!: My wife.

A last gasp walk worth taking. We had our hike only a week ago and now it is 2 degrees out and snow. Maybe it's time I capture the white ;) Beautiful image, Jack.

@Self-Indulgence: We haven't hit 2º F, and probably won't; but we have been down to 16º F for a few nights; it's okay until a breeze comes up. Thanks for your kind words.

The path makes a beautiful walk way with all the color in the fallen leaves and the brilliant of the leaves remaining on the tree. I like having a person there with her dog. This adds a nice human touch.

What a beautiful neighborhood to live in! I do sometimes wish we got a bit more Fall color here! (But I can't complain about where I live!)

10 Dec 2009 8:30pm

@Tracy: No, you certainly don't live in a shabby place. Our neighborhood is fabulous. Tons of hills. A variety of fine architecture. Lots of massive trees (both evergreens and deciduous). Our place is like a mini-retreat center.
