Mood: Trespassy, with a hint of foreboding doom.

I think I may have trespassed to get this photo. By that, I mean that I stepped over a tiny wooden fence and took three or four steps into this grass backyard to get the picture. This was almost certainly a bad idea, but my early morning warped logic was that anyone with enough whimsy to hang a cool tin man in their tree would be fine with someone else whimsical hopping through quickly to take a picture. I had to go back there, because I was unable to get a good picture from the sidewalk because it was just too far away, and I really needed a picture of this bad boy.
Thankfully, It all worked out okay, and as soon as I hopped back over the fence, I realized what a poor decision this was. I knew that I had to use this picture for today's run, as I am never again going to go back into that yard to get a picture.
This morning had the feel of something epic on the edge of happening. The dark and foreboding gray skies gave the feel as if something major might go down this morning that would change the course of human events. I don't think anything that large ended up going down today, but I could feel the potential with every step I took. It was a weird feeling.
