This Moment

{this moment} A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

  1. Wow. We NEVER see the likes of a pile of leaves that size here in Sydney. I can only imagine how fun that would be...

  3. That is huge! I have many fun memories of jumping into leaf piles as a kid.
    By the way, I loved your Living in the City post.

  6. @ Lou: The annual leaf pick-up is an annual highlight for us.

    @Ana: Thanks for the comment on the City post. As for leaves, I didn't have that growing up, so I'm living it now.

    @ Patty: The next step is for front-loaders to come and put the leaves in dump trucks to be carried away to the city compost. It's quite spectacular -- an annual event the boys talk about all year.

  8. Wow. that is not one big pile is it?
    Is there a truck or something propping it up? It's crazy huge! My daughter would love it.

    Ps. We get the city leaf vacuums bi-weekly throughout fall close into the Holiday season.

  13. In all the years I've lived in Michigan, I don't think I have ever seen a leaf pile that large. I think my toddler would just be scared of it because of it's HUGE size.
