In the same way that this little leaf got carried along by this big leaf during the storms and flooding yesterday, I feel carried by you.
My WP journey has lasted over 3 years and a big part of my happiness here has been getting to know you through visits to your blogs. It is truly my intention to spend a lot more time virtually hanging out with you … in 35 days! I can’t wait!
Thank you for your support and encouragement!
Don’t you just love the vibrance of RED?
And how about the luminence of yellow and orange?
Happy Fall, Ya’ll!
(and Joe – I swear I’d taken these before you started your incredible Wonder of Autumn series. Blogger friends – if you haven’t seen that series, please visit The Visual Chronicle)
This image, but in black and white, is my contribution to Monochromia today.
And you can see the B&W image here, too …
Hope you all have something fun planned for the weekend! I’ll be catching up on chores, checking out your blog posts, watching the Hokies play Carolina, and of course spending a little time on the bike!
Once the thunder, lightning, wind, and rain are gone, there is a calmness on the lake that lures me back outside. Within minutes, my feet are in the water and the camera is in my hand.
I loved the larger view of this image because of the movement, color, and designs on the water, but I just had to crop the photo a bit so the raindrops floating along in the curve of this leaf were more visible.
Soon, very soon, I’ll get to those leaves. They’ve been neglected, but at least this year I have an excuse! 🙂
The shadows of the tree on the house caught my eye this morning,
as did the layers of leaves.
I love that the colors of summer still shine brightly against the beauty of the changing leaves.
As Alys counts down to Halloween, I count down to this weekend’s ride!
As I walked out of the office at the end of the day, my mind was focused on the pending photography shoot of a friend’s elderly dog. I was feeling a bit apprehensive, not having had much experience with animal photography. Dexter is much loved and will soon not be with us. Adding to that apprehension was the fact that I wasn’t very happy with the photos I’d taken the day before.
When climbing into the truck, I saw the sun shining through these leaves. The colors were so like fall … in the beginning of June. As soon as I pressed the shutter, I knew I’d be happy with the result. In fact, I really couldn’t decide which one I liked best, so I posted all three!
And that was just the boost of confidence that I needed to go visit Dexter.
I’m not sure I captured the personality of this sweet old boy. What is it about a dog? No matter how much in pain or how hard it is to get around, a dog will still wag that tail and try to make the people around him happy.
What a guy! I’m so glad I met him.
