11/19/21 Maple Leaf neighborhood
Our recent deluge and wind caused flooding, downed trees, power outages and other devastation in some parts of the region, but we were thankfully safe in Maple Leaf. During a dry morning last week, I went out walking on First Avenue Northeast parallel to Interstate 5. Next to the freeway barrier, it’s gravel instead of paved sidewalk, and cars park in weird ways, making some of my favorite compositions. One benefit of rain is that it leaves behind puddles in the uneven gravel.
