Lovely photos. I'm happy to travel with you!


We need more whimsy and wonder

I'm glad you are enjoying your new digs and area!

A delightful downtown area and I like the whimsical figures. The performing arts centre is very modern looking, I'm sure the musical was good.

I love whimsy and those cute critters are perfect.

I have to say that walking to see a play or to shop for groceries or a gift is a privilege in modern times when too often one needs to fight traffic to get anywhere. The jewel-adorned pumpkin and the autumn English Ivy that sparkles in the rain bring creativity and liveliness to the gray.

Good for you for living life to the full and enjoying your home town - 42nd Street sounded fantastic!

whimsy and wonder is good. You have an eye for seeing the small odd things that makes life more interesting :)


I like your mosaic of Autumn colours. It is a lesson to us all to look and enjoy the world on our doorstep.


You sound happy Sallie! I love the sculptures and the autumn leaves:)


Dearest Sallie; I LOVE the title and the matching photographs from your walk. Sweet gifts the acrobatic animals get♪ What a unique and interesting view the Hult Center has♡♡♡ Yes,Fall leaves are BEAUTIFUL and I wish I could enjoy more this year:-)

Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

Could those animal sculptures be otters? they are very cute! The pumpkins are very pretty decoorated with jewls, as were the autumn trees in thier fall color. Enjoy the good weather, Sallie. We may get our first inches of snow this week--I'm ready for it.


Great collection of animals and Fall scenes, Sally!
There is something to be said about city-icing, isn't there? :)
Have a Great Week!
Peace :)

Nice downtown area. Looks very friendly place.


Sallie, your creativity shines through here. These colorful shots put a big smile on my face!

Thanks Sallie for sharing your walk in your city! Thanks for your visit and comment. This Anders Breivik was treated very badly as a child by his mother, who abused him in all possible ways. according to Google.
Have a great week, Sallie.
Wil, ABCW Team.


A great series of photos and I especially like the autumn leaves. You are living in another interesting place!

How lovely that you are taking advantage of city life!


Oh, what a fun, delightful post for the day, Sallie! For any day actually!! I do love your photos and what a great place!! Thanks for sharing!! Hope you have a wonderful new week!! Enjoy!


Yes I can see the advantages of city living - the culture, the restaurants, the shopping etc. Then I read about or see on TV the problems that cities like London, Manchester and Birmingham have and decide that I prefer to live a little more remote. There's always the car, bus or train and I'm in the city in an hour but then can't wait to leave.


Great photos Sallie, it looked like a wonderful walk and I enjoyed all the sculptures you encountered. Thanks for taking us along :)


Wonderful display of art in downtown.


The area around you looks very nice !


Oh, Sallie, these make me smile. Such sweet moments on city streets. I especially appreciate your arrangement of leaves - great montage. It seems that you and Eugene, OR are comfortable together. :)


Sounds like you're having a great time. The Hult Center is an architecturally intriguing place. And lots of whimsy in your town. When are you heading back to SW Florida where everybody is not weird? :)


The leaves are gorgeous and I really like the critters! :)


You are making the most of it. I take so many pics of Fall Color, so many more than I'll ever post.

After looking at your post I had to google the Hult Center. What a wonderful place that is making a major contribution to the quality of life in your area.

Jenn Jilks

You've been having a grand time, indeed!


i like the critters, too. :)


Eugene has So much to offer.


You are reminding me of the positive side to city living...It took me about a year to gets used to having to drive everywhere again after I moved out of NYC!

Sharon Wagner

Bedazzled pumpkins. Love it!

Lavender Dreams

We've wondered what it would be like to have a place right in the city and be able to walk to everything. Sounds wonderful! It's still very hot here but maybe it will change this coming week. Too hot to walk today..boohoo! Hugs, Diane


Hello Sallie, thanks for the tour. The sculptures are cute. And the falls leaves are beautiful. The Hult Center is a lovely building. Great photos. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week ahead!

Nancy Chan

Love the fall leaves. Hult Center looks like an interesting place for photography! Have a wonderful new week!


There is always something interesting to photograph!


Eugene seems to be a very beautiful time and I like a lot the little animals with the flower ! have a nice sunday and week, Sallie ! here, it's summer time !
