I love the look of these huge, sprawling structures. The way shadows and light play on them endlessly intrigues me. These were taken on the same day within minutes of each other, but their look is so different, the light and location make the changes seem radical to me. Since I'm a total know nothing when it comes to F-stops, speeds and all that technical camera talk, I just keep my camera set on 'auto', it works best for me.

On sunny days the sparrows like to congregate on the branch compost boxes...
And on the 'trees and bushes' that grow in the alley along the fence.
Then there is the question of who is in charge of the backyard.
Obviously Iris thinks she is and Jasper tends to agree...
He's been chased by Iris before and it's pretty funny to watch!
But he tries to be 'cool' about it all the same.
