Day 341 – Market Square

(Click any photo to enlarge.)

Please join me on the last day, September 2, for a celebration photo walk!  Registration details are here.

It was hard to find inspiration today.  It was cloudy, muggy, and occasionally a light rain would fall.  Unlike now — it’s absolutely pouring outside!  I’m glad I decided to get in a walk when I did.

Because I needed to go to the grocery store, I decided to walk at Market Square, the new shopping center across from Wegman’s.  There is plenty of walking opportunity there, between the new shopping areas and the new townhouses.  I knew it would be a challenge to come up with interesting photos, so I decided to “collect” patterns and textures, which I later put into a collage.

This shopping center is best characterized by its plethora of chain stores:  Pier 1 Imports, Pet Smart, Noodles and Company, McDonald’s, Jimmy Johns, Home Goods, and more.  It can also be characterized by its confusing parking areas and traffic.  Perhaps when it is all finished it will make more sense.

So, although this blog entry is short, the walk was not.  Nothing was inspiring.  Some days are just like that, and I am grateful that in this year of photo walking, I can count on one hand the walks that my biggest critic (my daughter Lauren) will tell me was “boring.”  She tends to call it like it is.  Sorry, I just can’t be sparkling and witty all the time!
