Where Zat? Walker Creek

Walker Creek

Walker Creek

Adam, this week’s winner, wrote “I grew up on and in Walker Creek and kind of know it like the back of my hand. I recognized the short dock right away, but it’s always funny how a telephoto pulls in the background. It took me a little while to convince myself.” He does gorgeous photography at Tragabigzanda.

He wins a gift certificate from Audrey’s Flower Shop. A big thank you to Heather Peterson! Congratulations, Adam!

For those of you who don’t know where Walker Creek is,  it’s at the corner of  Sumner and Concord Streets in W. Gloucester.  Nice bike ride if you can handle the hills. And remember your camera!
