[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Almost 3 years ago but I remember taking a ride in the car and dozens of pictures. Ironically Jane stayed home due to pain aqnd not wanting to take her wheelchair.
The breeze was gentle and smelled heavily of fall coming...just a bit crisp but protected by the sun...but with each picture now come back thee memory of WALKING!!! Never for a second take anything about your health for granted....I say this as today I wheeled my 55 pound wheelchair down to the street only to discover my wildflower field had been cut. One of those kind of days..

PIC: An oak branch filled with natural colours flanked by one tree which had not yet turned......but it did in time...all things change....it is the way we live. It is our life and our natural world.

Hi Bob,

What a delightful scene - one that I will not see this year. No Colorado trip - the gang is coming here for Thanksgiving. These autumn leaves are beautiful. Even without the changing colors I am looking forward to fall - late fall when it will finally cool down! Your words are so true but something you have to be lucky enough to get older to understand. Who thought of health when they were young?

Hello Bob,
A beautiful reminder that things are always changing around us, as well as to us. The leaves haven't really started to turn yet here in Ohio, but I'm sure it won't be long.
We seem to be having an outbreak of web worms this year, so some parts of the woods do look like fall, because of their destructive damage to the leaves.

Hello Bob,

the changing from the seasons and soon it are so.
We have here the beginning of autumn, much rain.
Goo d taking and a pity the sky was'nt blue.
One thing you've not forgotten , youre writing great notes an i like the way you telling this.

Fine colours.


Good morning Bob,

This image reminded me ths sentence "When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is
to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love." which i read before:) but i am not sure the writers' name now.
I do not know why? but when i look at your image i feel the morning light that it is the best time to photograph.
An artistic composition, that shows nice detail and good use of shallow DOF MF!
Have a nice sunday!


Hi Bob!

Your Oak prepares to loose its leaves. It's end of August, time to remember that that the summer goes to its end and that everything on this earth is nothing but ephemeral. I will think at what you say concerning the health and encourage you to use your weelchair as much as possible.

Kind regards
