Day 58, Bees

It was a little on the cool side, 58ยบ F, but some bees, wasps, and assorted bugs were on this plant. Unfortunately the bee, below, seems to have expired; It has not moved for 15 minutes.

Day 57, Fog and rain

Toady was one of fog and rain. Early in the day, when there was just fog, it was a good day for a walk in the woods. Later as the rain took over it was not quite so pleasant, if you were carrying a camera.

Fall Color

The Fall is my favorite season of the year, it's filled with color. The problem many have is taking the time to stop and enjoy.

Day 56, Laceleaf

Sometimes when we search for good photo opportunities we forget about our own front yard. This Japanese Laceleaf maple has become a vivid red. All too soon the leaves will fall but there is time to enjoy the color.

Day 55, Fixed gear

I was enroute to an appointment when I saw this fixed gear bike. An interesting choice of colors. I walked by it again 40 minutes later and that raised a question. Is it a commuter's bike or that of a messenger waiting for an assignment?

Day 54, Snoopy

Another weekend, another football game, another blimp. Although these pictures were taken yesterday I will count them as Day 54. Unfortunately, if the forecast is accurate, this blimp will be grounded.

Day 53, Seagulls

Today was gray and dismal but at least the rain had stopped. The chill in the air made you think, "Maybe it's time to head south!"

Day 52, Fall Color

Fall color has begun to work its way south. Not quite as colorful as some areas up north but close. In the sunset below there is one little object to find. It's easy.

Day 51, Paddington

This is my new friend Paddington; he is a gentle giant, very forgiving of the mistakes made by novice riders. He could use a good grooming, which he will get later. He does love the mud. Paddington is stabled at Apple Knoll Farm, a very nice 300+ acre equestrian site.

Day 50

Interesting cloud formations. Above is facing SSW at sunset, there is a range of hues to please the eye. Below is a direct view of the sunset to the west, the colors are more intense. I enjoy the scenes of sunset, someday I may be able to include the sunrise.

Day 49, Changing colors

The change of foliage has begun. The colors will become more vivid in the next two weeks so I will look for more oppotunities to record the contrast of color.

Day 48, Sunset comparison

The changes in color between these two sunset photos are subtle but at the same time interesting.

Day 47, David Sibley

In recognition of his new book Guide to Trees there is a David Sibley exhibit at the Massachusetts Audubon Visual Arts Center.

It is a very interesting presentation. It includes some of the original art for the book, plus some artwork from previous publications.

They also include a little activity area for children of all ages.

Day 46, Sunset colors

It may seem that I have a fixation on sunsets but the reason for so many is quite simple. First the vantage poimt is close to home. Second I am fascinated by the variety of colors seen at sunset.
