100 steps (kinda)

Some time ago, I remember seeing a photo project on the internet called "100 steps" (or something like that) which challenged people to take a camera with them on a routine walk, and take a photo of something, anything interesting every 100 steps of that journey. I thought the idea was pretty cool, but at the time, I never really got around to it, because honestly, I am always in a big fat rush.

I don't get to pick up Cal from school that often, maybe once every week or two as my work (and OB appointment scheduling) allows, but every time I walk there to get him, it always seems like the weather is perfect and the light is just right and I always wish that I had a camera with me. So today I was walking to get Cal from school and thinking those same old thinks, when I realized, duh, I have a phone cam on me, don't I. I didn't obey the letter of the rules, in that I got tired of counting each 100 steps pretty early on, but I think I obeyed the spirit of the rules, which were basically to stop and observe and look at things that you might ordinarily just walk right by in your rush from Point A to Point B.

Anyway, it was fun. Full photo set here.

(Also, I think there's something wrong with the comments section, but damned if I know what it is. So I'm just going to wait until HaloScan figures out what's wrong fixes itself. That's my usual strategy when something internet-y goes wrong--defer to others. That, and the old standby for all manner of electronic equipment failure--turn it off, then turn it back on again. Works >50% of the time!)
