October 15, 2014 Some Fall Color

 

Ok, ok!  I wasn’t going to do any Fall Color stuff in 2014.  However, while at my parent’s home, it begged me to, so I grabbed my Canon Pocketshot and grabbed a few.  So here they are.

The music for this page is Elemental by Tears for Fears. All my friends and I hated them when they first broke in 1985, but over the years I have discovered that Roland Orzabal is a musical genius.  This 1993 CD features some amazing, moody, Fall songs, including “Mister Pessimist”  and “Elemental”, plus the hit “Break It Down Again” …but the entire CD is worthy of a front-to-back sitting.

A tree in front of my parent’s home.  I was playing with Max when I saw how the sun was reflecting here, and grabbed my ever-present Pocketshot.  I wish I had my Nikon D5K, but the Canon did ok.

Another tree; this time from a different (opposite) angle.  It’s all about the light.

Looking up at 2 trees in my parent’s front yard.  Or maybe it was their neighbor’s yard?  I dunno…

A plastic pumpkin stands guard at their front door.  I like the color and he looks friendly enough.

Some flowers by the road in front of their house.  Pocket cameras seem to do a very nice job on flora.

No, ISIS didn’t get to MaxPoor Dog!  He has an eye infection so he’s the Coned Warrior for a while.  ISIS wouldn’t stand a chance against him; let them try to take away his Devil Ball!

Looks like it’s time to clean my instrument cluster.

Back home, here’s a shot of my neighbor’s tree.

 
None of these are spectacular; I have certainly done better Fall Color work.  However, I felt the need to display them here.  In a few weeks the trees will be bare, so it’s good to have some record of what the Fall of 2014 looked like.
