Cacapon Mountain Streetscape

Carmi's Thematic Photographic 265 is Streetscapes. Carmi mentions an urban environment, but right now my local streets are in the woods. Here's a picture of a box turtle that Theda and I ran across on a rainy walk down the road outside the house.

These next few pictures are of deer I've seen well driving back to the house the last couple of days.



This picture doesn't qualify as streetscape. Would you believe a porchscape?

Mouse over pics for captions, and click them for larger versions.

Yay! I could have bet a large amount of money that your streetscape would include Theda and at least one bird ;)
- wouldn't have picked the turtle, though!

Whoa. Love the box turtle! Does he represent Kentucky?

Just kidding.

Well, we can't all live in the middle of a city! ;) Theda looks really interested in that turtle! And those deer - the eyes look quite eerie!

They are all perfect and yes all wildlife have their own Streetscapes and by ways!

Second 'orb' pic is dynamite! One of your best!

Love the pic of the dog and the turtle!

Theda and the box turtle get my vote. Glad it wasn't a snapper.

Whitman’s Song of Myself:

*****
32
I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and
self-contain’d,
I stand and look at them long and long.

They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania of
owning things,
Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands of
years ago,
Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.

Snailscape!! I encountered a couple of deer just the other morning, walking the dog.

I think these absolutely are streetscapes! What is a street other than a thoroughfare. I'm sure your pup, the turtle and the deer all see this environment as their streetscape. So it totally qualifies.

Box turtle: how COOL is that!
