Last of the Leaves

Just about all the leaves are gone on Grove Street. With the unusually warm weather this year they seemed to cling on to the trees longer than last. I’ve been snapping a few photos with my iPhone for the past few weeks during the morning catwalk.

I find it ironic that my house is sandwiched between two churches.


My hedges produced these blue berries this year.

Ok this next photo was taken in August, but wouldn’t this rectory building from the former St Michael’s Church make a great homeless shelter? I know the City and Interfaith Partnership are looking for a place. Maybe a deal could be worked out with the Buddhists who own the building. It would help curb the urban decay here and bring some life back to the block.

All photos on this page taken with the iPhone4 are Copyrighted.  In fact I spent the better part of last weekend  organizing, registering and submitting copies of ALL my original blog photos with the US Copyright Office.

Cats Love Autumn

Most people like autumn because of the change in color of the foliage. Personally it is the dramatic lighting changes that excite me but cats also love autumn. They just can’t help it. Cats are wired to react to small moving objects as a predatory instinct.  When autumn comes around, my cats become hyperactive, batting with their paws as if they are going to catch the falling leaves through the window glass. When I do take them outside it is sensory overload for them. There are just too many falling leaves to keep track of.  They chase the leaves and leap into the air tying to catch them before they hit the ground.
