A Walk In The Neighborhood
January 3, 2010, was the first sunny day of the new year, so I took my camera out for a walk in the Gerstle Park (San Rafael, CA) neighborhood. I met a number of dogs (with their walkers), a few cats, and our resident wild turkey, who seems to have forgotten his wild ways in favor of finding stuff to eat on the streets (and, we suspect, insects on car bumpers and grills). He likes to spend a lot of time admiring (or possibly, threatening) his reflection in the cars.
There were also a few colorful leaves still around on the liquid ambar trees:
And in the park proper, a smoke bush that was in spectacular bloom (if that's what the smoke is):
