Theme Day: My Street

It's the first of the month and time for City Daily Photo's monthly theme day. "My Street" is the theme we selected this time (democratically, as always).

I won't tell you much about my street because it's our private Brigadoon. We love living here. We have the most wonderful neighbors, and we know we're fortunate to have found this quiet, friendly spot to call home.

City Daily Photo has a new website, where you can find daily photo blogs from all over the world. The new site administrators continue to shine it up as a work in progress. Take a look at today's theme participants, or pick a blog in a remote land and explore.

No telling needed. Your picture says it all.

A perfect 'Pasadena' scene. Those trees are enormous and so beautiful in that light.

No wonder you don't want to say too much about your street. You surely don't want to have strangers invading such a peaceful place do you?!

Sharon said...

It looks like a beautiful spot to call home.

Petrea Burchard said...

One of these days I'd like to do a group shot of my neighbors. They are the best.

LOL, one year ago today we exited our houses to find our street blocked by trees--huge ones--that came down in a massive wind storm. We've lost a few more since, those that suffered damage in the storm but hung on a while. It has changed the street, but there were so many trees to begin with!

Eric, I thought the same of your Passage!

as my jug boils for my second morning coffee I wish I had that seat to use on your front lawn, looks like a fantastic spot to sit and watch the world go by...

Lisa said...

Looks like a great place to sit and enjoy the antics of the neighborhood hoodlums!

paul said...

Even though you want to keep us out, that seat does look sooo inviting!

Petrea Burchard said...

It's not you all I want to keep out, Paul! Come on over and let's watch the hoodlums together!

Bellis said...

Nice lighting and evening shadows, it looks very inviting. What a different day from this time last year. I don't think I've recovered yet from the shock of that night. At least the tree could be saved and the insurance were incredibly helpful.

A beautiful retreat you have there on your street! And a fine contribution to the theme.

Buck said...

That's beautiful. I love the Brigadoon reference and hope you enjoy it for ever and ever

Petrea Burchard said...

I hope so, too!

Ms M said...

Ahhh, that looks so peaceful. A lovely place to live.

Joan Elizabeth said...

I love the light and the green grass. Such a pleasant place to sit.

JM said...

My favourite garden/porch chair. Lovely greenery in your street, Petrea.

Petrea Burchard said...

Thank you all for visiting!
