Evening Walk

So it's been cold here this May. I mean COLD. Rainy, dark and cold. I can't even stand to sit in our office at work because I start to freeze. My desk quilt is not warm enough even with my sweater coat and boots. Did I mention it's cold?
The worst part is I avoid the out of doors. It is easy to forget it is spring and kinda gorgeous out there even with our less than desirable weather. I had to walk to the store last night to get milk and decided to take my camera. It's been weeks since I walked with my camera.

None of these are great photos. That's not why I'm sharing them. It was raining. 7:30 in the evening with my 50mm lens. I also had my full shopping bag. Steady I was not. These are straight out of the camera except for a couple that I cropped.

The point is, I got up off my popo, walked, carried groceries, took the long way home in the rain and cold, and managed to enjoy myself. Then there where the colors. Oh my! The colors were gorgeous!

And that is what I wanted to share.
















Have a geat weekend.
Oh FYI the Sindelfingen handwerk market is today and tomorrow. I don't think they cancel because of weather.....
