Walking in the Wissachickonn #5

By handlerstudio  
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Another day's walk in the Wissahickon....it had been a rainy day, and cleared late afternoon....what better time to be in the woods with my camera? Still wet from the rain, still some mist from the rain (later photos), and following tradition...this being Saturday, shadows too.

Four days and counting....I am about to go out and pass out leaflets to homes of people in my neighborhood who have not voted yet (hard as that is to imagine). The issue here in Philadelphia is not what the percentage of the vote will be...but raw numbers. If the election is close (and so many of us are hoping it is not), Pennsylvania is being looked at around the country as the state that could decide the election. We, of course, have an antiquated system of deciding presidential elections, called the Electoral College (which is neither electoral in a fairness sense, nor a college in an educational sense) that dates back to the racist history of slavery in this country, and that gives an undue influence on who wins of the smaller states. Remember, Al Gore and Hilary Clinton both won the election and did not become president. This is as easy to explain to anyone not from here as is cricket to those of us not initiated. I did see a cricket match once in Bermuda....I had no idea what was going on...but the beer someone handed to us (and my then 80 year old mother ) was good and welcome).

So, here are a few shots in the Wissahickon with shadows. Have a good weekend. And keep your collective fingers crossed.
