One of my favorite pasttimes of late has been wandering around the town where I live (Greenbelt, MD) with my dog, taking pictures of whatever catches my eye. This has resulted in a large number of pseudo-macro photos of flowers and a large number of pretty abstract pictures of the local architecture, such as these. The reactions of my wife and friends (and my Flickr stats) seem to indicate that I should take more photos of my pets instead. Nonetheless, I really enjoy taking them, so I thought I'd share a few of them here. Any comments or suggestions for improvement are more than welcome, and I'd love to see photos other people have taken in the same vein.
