Late autumn beauty

On Thursday I took a break from work to walk around the neighborhood for some fresh air and exercise. Here are some photos of the objects that caught my eye as I walked, taken with my phone camera. I have often had the thought that beauty is everywhere, if only our hearts and eyes are open to it. During these days of pandemic isolation and political turmoil, I take refuge and solace in the beauty of nature that is everywhere, even in the middle of the city.
