Oklahoma City

This week I am in Oklahoma City on a business trip. Its been pretty cold and last night it was well below freezing. Still warmer than New England. However, a light snow storm hit Oklahoma City this afternoon.

I walked down to the Oklahoma Memorial and took some night photos of the snow. I was the only person around there last night, with the exception of the security guard.

If you plan to visit downtown Oklahoma, be sure to check out the underground tunnels, there are lots of good eating places to visit at lunch time and it makes it easy to walk around the city without worrying about getting hit by a car.

Walden Pond

Today I walked with my friend around Walden Pond. The leaves are still pretty much green, but I suspect in a couple of weeks it there will be plenty of great photo spots.

It still cost $5 to park even at 4pm at night on the last day of September. I don't know the logic to still charge people to park since most beaches in New England stop charging after Labor day.

If you do plan to visit Walden Pond, be sure to bring a small rock from home. It is a tradition to leave a stone at the Thoreau House Site.

Fall Colors

Much of Concord and metro Massachusetts is still very green. However over the next couple of weeks the color of fall will enlighten the area. This is the best time of year to be in New England.

Favorite Photo Places:

  • Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, Concord, MA. (near Author's Ridge)
  • Downtown Concord, MA.
  • Old North Bridge, Concord MA.
  • Stow Road, Acton MA. (Near the Acton/Stow town line)
  • Along the Cape Cod Canal, Bourne, MA.
