We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine the earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation and wildness.

way down on evans

I have a love of wandering areas of town that aren't really for walking. So I was excited when I discovered that the place where I was having the windshield replaced was in just such an area. For the two hours that I had to kill Alder and I walked (I pushed he sat) past all sorts of industrial stuff, stopped into a thrift store, and climbed a very long hill.

Technically I was having issues with getting any street into the picture since I didn't have anyone who could take a picture far enough away. If anyone has suggestions I'd love it. These two are the best of the lot.

Your second picture captures that eerie industrial feel rather nicely I think.

I've been resting my camera on rubbish bins, ledges and fences and using the self timer but it's still a pretty hard challenge...
