Thanksgiving Day Walk
Daughter #1 used to work in this office complex. I love how the complementary blue and orange play off each other.
Different lake today in a local park. This was a quick stop, rushing between meetings, grocery shopping for Thanksgiving, and work.
I stopped by the lake again this morning where some of the boats are stored in a round shelter-like building. This shot is looking up at the ceiling and open sky light where the sun shines through. It’s a bright sunny day with no clouds and the reflected light is turning the wooden beams an orange brown hue.
“Seeing is more than a physiological phenomenon… We see not only with our eyes but with all that we are and all that our culture is. The artist is a professional see-er.”
And now for something completely different… Hubby came home sick from his travels this week. So rest and recovery are the goals for today. Which is why I’m at the liquor store, getting a bottle of Wild Turkey Honey for a regimen of medicinal hot toddies. Hopefully, I’ll get outside for some photo sessions next week, but this is what I have to work with today for my photo challenge. Not exactly art, but it is what it is…
In case anyone is interested, here is the basic recipe we used for the toddies, except we added honey to it.
I got up early and went to the lake to get this lovely morning light. The water was so still and the autumn colors glowed in the early sunlight.
The first change I’ve made in my photo challenge is that I’ve started taking my camera with me everywhere I go. I stopped by the lake on the way home from my workout this morning. These fuzzy weeds are the hardest things to get in focus. I tried with auto and manual and still didn’t get it right. The leaves and stems seem to be focused but not the plumes. Oh well… I love that there is no wasted film in digital photography. And tomorrow is another day, and the weekend to boot! 🙂
