Friday Photos

In between my usual check-up at the doctor this morning (all is well), lunch at Chipotle, and running a couple errands, I stopped to snap some photos.

There is a railroad yard near downtown Sharonville. Sharon Road goes over the tracks and the bridge gives a nice vantage point for watching the tracks. I stopped there and took a few photos. The power lines are an annoying obstruction, but I worked around them in a few shots. You can see the entire set of photos in my Flickr set.

I also stopped at the Evendale community park. While walking to take a couple flower photos (I thought this one turned out well), I found this seed pod on the ground. I'm the worst at identifying trees, so I'm not sure what tree this is from. It was basically a sphere just a bit bigger than the size of an average acorn. The openings look like a bunch of open bird beaks.

Sweet Gum. No fun going barefoot when you have one of these trees in your yard.
