Close to home

The pandemic caused the postponement of multiple trips this year for me (minor in the grand scheme of things, I know), but it has one silver lining in that I’ve increased exploring of my local town with camera in hand.

From evening walks in snow among deserted streets to summer sunsets, here are a few of my favorite photos closer to home in Arvada, Colorado.

Old Flour Mill in snow. I walked by this building almost daily and never took a photo until this night when this view through the snowy branches caught my eye.
