I like walking. Long time readers might remember I once walked across a large east African country, and now that I’ve settled into Denver I haven’t stopped yet. I’ve gotten into the habit of picking a neighborhood a weekend, and wandering around to my heart’s content.
I particularly like walking with my camera. I learn lots, and not just about the camera, but about the city as well.
One weekend, I packed up ye olde camera and my mp3 player and walked around Highlands and Slone Lake. I think, when I got to the end of it, it came out to seven or eight miles. Not too bad.
I like the Highlands neighborhood. The food is tasty, and you never know when you’ll find an octopus on the wall.
This weekend I did Cherry Creek, and even though I had my camera on me, I didn’t take it out. There are some really cool houses (coughcastlescough) in that area, but I feel a bit odd snapping pictures of someone’s home. So I just walked.
It was nice.
