About Me

My photo
Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills. Started this blog to exchange ideas and commentary with friends and others having an interest in joining the discussions. Greatest life accomplishments include: 1.organized my 3rd grade class to check out library books for me to get around librarian's weekly limit--Amazon.com, the Mullins Elementary 3rd Grade Class of 1956 is still waiting for "thank you" notes; 2. volunteered in the Peace Corps, island of St. Kitts, West Indies; 3.taught adults to read, earn their GEDs., and speak English as a second language; 4. bought a border collie puppy for $6, got evicted rather than give him up, and began a life-long love affair with all things "Dog"; 5. joined a physical fitness boot camp in my mid-50s--don't mess with someone who's been doing regulation pushups in wet grass at 5:30 a.m.; 6. walked across Northern England with best friend Sally--over 80 miles from the Irish to North Seas; and 7. travelled to many foreign countries for pleasure and work.

Autumn Photo Challenge, Day 11 - "Sunlight"

Some days in autumn are just golden, as in these two photos.

I shot this around 8:00 a.m. from the deck in back of my house, my normal spot to catch the sunrise:
This photo was around mid-day. Just loved the way the light filtered down through the autumn colored leaves on this flowering dogwood. I wasn't lying on my back to take this photo, but it was awkward to get in the right position, hold Willie's leash and the camera steady!

If you'd like to participate in the Two Weeks in Autumn Photo Challenge--and I hope you do--it's simple. Just grab your camera and take a photo of your interpretation of the day's subject. Post on your blog and then leave me a comment so I can visit you and include your link on the player's list below. Also, since some of the photo subjects may take a bit of planning thought I'd give you a few of them ahead of time.

Nice shilouette for the first shot and great angle in the second one Faye. I love standing under trees and looking up...it makes for a very nice perspective! This is such a beautiful time of year!

I used the same theme -- but at a different angle.

Love this fall weather we are having.
