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.

Wednesdays Wordless and Watery - Fall in Seneca Park


Views of Beargrass Creek from Belnap Bridge in Seneca Park.  Because of the fall foliage I experimented with camera settings.  Do you prefer the vivid or more natural setting?

Cecilia Artista said...

Beautiful autumn pictures. Like the colors!

In my computer it is difficult to read your blue text against the background!

Lois Evensen said...

They are all pretty, but I like options 1. ;) That first image is wonderful!

And, just to follow up on Cecilia above, I have no problem reading your text and seeing your images. Perhaps her computer didn't completely load your page. Your page looks great to me.

I love the streams as well in your Autum Photography. Our creeks have gone dry.

So was so nice to see in your blog photos what I could not get in my Autum pictures the other day.


Today I have oldies of 100 years.

Standing so proud on my blog.

Isn't it wonderful we have so many people who are interested in Photography.

I so like the people I have met on the blogs like yourself. They are so kind and not self centered.

Always there and making comment. Being encouragers.

Note to my readers/commenters - if you are having trouble accessing my blog, I really appreciate knowing about it. I'm a poor excuse for a techie, but do have some geek squad friends who can bail me out. I'm saving the "trouble" comments that I've received for a geek squad visit. Thanks for your input.

Beautiful fall photos. I prefer the natural shots, but it is fun to experiment.
I'm not having any trouble reading your post.

beautiful color.

Betsy Adams said...

Faye, Your background is covering up so many of your words --and that makes it hard to read... You might want to change either the word colors --or the background...

Beautiful photos though --and Fall looks gorgeous in your area.
Hugs,
Betsy

I like it a little enhanced, but not too much. You seem to need a little extra water. We have a lot, do you want some?

Thanks for joining. :)

George said...

I normally prefer natural settings, but your photos look great with both settings. The park is simply beautiful.

Beautiful!!! Breath taking images and colors and reflections. I'm thinking the 5th photo down from the top would make a great and challenging jig saw puzzle. lol [seriously tho]

Tricia Hays said...

Just look at those fall colors, esp near water... it just adds something so much more to photos! =)

Good golly, that was an ordeal about the robbery... It must have taken a while to overcome... God bless you & your family for having to deal w/ that mess!

Living Life said...

I love the colorful yellow trees against the blue sky and the reflections in the water. These photos could be postcards! Did Chet get to go on this photo shoot?

Marie said...

Beautiful photos! It's a lovely place.

Pamela said...

sometimes the "vivid" is actually what is seen with the naked eye -- and in that case I prefer the contrast
