Instagram That Sh*t

Bitmap and I regularly go on walks in our neighborhood, as it’s pretty much the only way I can get her to be quiet (read: sleep) long enough to make a phone call. Today I noticed some graffiti along the path…

 

I don’t use instagram much, partially because I’m kind of a camera snob aficionado, but how could I say no? And then I decided to take some over-processed snapshots of a few other things along our walk.

These were posted all along the path. I’m not positive, but I don’t think these were actually posted in 2009. I think they went up a couple months ago.

Festive berries! Anyone know what kind they are?

This bridge is currently unused, but there are plans to turn it into a park similar to NYC’s High Line.

This road is directly under the regional rail. It’s handy to walk under when it’s raining, but parking on it is a¬†guarantee¬†that your car will be covered in pigeon poop.

Today’s walk was short, maybe half a mile. On a fussy day we might walk 3 miles just so I can get some peace and quiet. Bitmap almost always passes out when I put her in her carrier. By the time she’s walking I’ll have back muscles like superman.

Progress

Our little grumblebot (her nickname this week) is on the brink of mobility!

I really expected her to start crying when she first fell forward, but she didn’t and so as a true documentarian I did not interfere, though the hand that wasn’t holding the camera was ready to grab her in case she launched herself off the couch (which she did at the end)
