A Hint of Color Never Hurts now and Then

0214_jprphotos_1578

It is always a rule to carry a camera at all times no matter how inconvenient it is.  Not a stunning place, but one that will bring back fond memories for me.  The entire family out for a walk and not really being aware of our surroundings this wonderful sunset comes along.  As I looked up I notice that several photographers has gathered to take the shot. I shuttered that I did not have a camera and then I remembered my Leica DLUX 4.  I had it ready to shoot and using the program mode I was able to capture this shot.  It capped off a perfect afternoon.  No stress, or mess, just fun and time.

Autumn and a Road to Nowhere

Hop Road copy Taken with my Nikon 8008s in Hopkinton, MA.  It is literally a road that goes nowhere which is very common in MA.  I took about twelve photos this day but this was the one I liked the most.  It reminds me of where I am in life and lets me understand that there is precious time to do the things I want to do.  I worked for a very large company during this time and how fortunate I was to have many personal days to do just what I wanted.  Of course, that was the whole purpose.  I never minded going back to work.  If I had stayed in MA.  I would have worked for Bose forever.  What a great company and what a great product.

Since I have been back to Illinois I have not found the same color in the trees.  I think it is something in the air there.
