Postcards from the Sidewalk – Series 1

“The sidewalk is filled with postcards from the Almighty, if you only take the time to stop and admire” wrote the author, and I have decided to use that as the title for the series of pictures, I will post all through the Summer season when we can still go for long walks and enjoy the sunshine.
