Standard Time

Dark comes earlier now, and it seems to catch the day by surprise...she doesn't always seem willing to go gracefully into the dark...

Last Glow

The sun was setting, low on the horizon but it still had the power to blind...

Baby, It's Cold Outside!

It was pretty chilly last night.  Went out to get the trash can this morning and saw this...leftover rain water turned into ice...first ice of the season (in my neighborhood).  I guess I should find my winter jacket and have it ready...

Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving...a traditional holiday here in America.  There is much gathering of friends and family on this day.  I, personally, give thanks for all my many blessings on a daily basis.  Today is no different.  For those of you who do not "celebrate" this day, perhaps you will also give thanks for those things you are most grateful for.  I don't think giving thanks is merely an American or Canadian tradition.  I believe it is something that we should all practice.

Getting Ready

Every year around this time our snow maintenance company comes around and puts these around the complex.  The theory is that they will stick up out of the snow and show the crews where to plow/snowblow.  Every year before the snow flies, any number of these have disappeared...knocked down by wind or pets, pulled out by the kids.  I'll let you know how it goes when the snow comes....

When you wouldn't mind sitting waiting at a light, you never catch it...had to take this on the fly...have been trying for a week...the water in this "pond" has been still for a number of days...morning and evening. 

PS:  I like my canted pics that I get when I am taking on the fly...but then, my view on life is slightly skewed, also

Wrong Country

I was amazed to see this today...I mean c'mon...I-275 is a long way from France...and as you can see, they make skirts for the French.  I had to cover up the phone number so you wouldn't all be wanting to call and pester them for skirts...I am thinking black pencil skirts....maybe even make black capri's on the side...think Audrey Hepburn.

Between the Dark and the Daylight...

Mother Nature has been offering some beautiful gifts lately...I wish I could do her justice...

Although the weather peeps kept saying the fog would be to the north, it was pretty thick around where I live..I guess the proximity of the golf I was on my way out of the complex I decided to take a few shots...ya never know what the camera might see.  This one was maybe 40 feet from me.  I couldn't  even see the golf course across the road.  I do like ghostly, foggy views.

Yet Another...

...Sunrise...sorry folks...but I do have this thing about sunrise/sunsets (hmmm  sounds like a song title).  After voting last week I walked ouside and this was in the sky to greet me.  Doesn't matter which camera I used, nothing can compare (hmmm  another song title) to the reality of nature.  I considered cropping out the lamp post, but I didn't want to lose the bit down in the corner....

What Do It Mean...?

Snagged this one the other day...I am still pondering the meaning.  Is it a room somewhere?  Or is it the name of a business?  Is it a secret code?  If you are a member of the right group you will know where it is and when it is open?  A girl could lose a lot of sleep over this...I won't...but a girl could.
