This is my first week posting. Yeah! I chose the above pic because it shows the reason why I've stayed interested in running in downtown OKC and why I've started posting here. I love the juxtaposition of downtown OKC. The contrast between the newly remodeled homes and the old sometimes decrepit boarded up homes. This pic was taken a few blocks from St. Anthony's Hospital and my son's private school. The neighborhood had gotten so bad in 2003 that St. Anthony's was considering leaving until the city stepped in and gave them some financial benefits to stay. The nieghborhood still has some issues and I'm always a little bit scared when I run there, but I still love it. I just make sure I have my mace with me.

  1. We have included your blog in our guide Around The World.

    The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the "City Daily Photo Blog" lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from and related to a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are kept which are readily searchable by date.

    Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.
