Word Press Photo Challenge: Street Life

When I read that challenge, I thought, “I’ve visited lots of streets in the last two years I’ve been blogging and photographing.” In fact I just arrived in Boston, so I’ll be sharing some of my own pictures by tomorrow.  When I think street life, I think about people on the street.

Randy looks like the only living person in the world as he ambles through a residential neighborhood near where we used to live in Indianapolis.  The picture documents life in the suburbs. Even today, as it was when we were kids, living on this street exemplifies the easy-going, quiet, safe, and not-making-history kind of life.

Toes?

When I think life on the street, I picture people crossing streets, playing instruments, dancing, and watching others.

SF Walking Tour #2

This guide explained history as we walked the streets of San Francisco in a guided tour about Alfred Hitchcock.

    • It was interesting. Hitchcock set many of his films in San Francisco. So the tour took us to see many of them, and told the story of how they were used in the various films. I had not seen as many Hitchcock films as I thought, so I had to watch some when I went home.

    • Isn’t that hilarious? It’s a mechanical calf. One cowboy drives it around. It’s back legs move, and the other cowboy practices throwing a rope around his back legs.

  1. I love this selection of pictures, Marsha. I saw this challenge and thought ‘oh – I don’t get the opportunity to take may pictures of streets in the country’. LOL 😀

    • So there you are! A good excuse to take pictures on the street where you live. I think you might be even more in the country than I am, though. It’s great for walking. 🙂

  2. “the easy-going, quiet, safe, and not-making-history kind of life” – great expression Marsha. I’d be interested in the Hitchcock walk. Nice scenery too 🙂

    • The Hitchcock walk was much more interesting to the majority of people. The scenery was much hillier, too. I’ll have to check to see if I did a post on that one. Hard to remember most of the facts, but I have some great pictures. 🙂 I love the church you see in the background of one of the pictures.

In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
