I woke up this morning and it was raining. I went back to sleep and when I woke up later, it was still raining. I got dressed. Started the coffee and toasted a muffin, but it was still raining. I got the distinct impression it was going to be an all day rain.
Too bad. We finally have enough color in the trees to make an excursion worth the effort. Even with a weather-proof camera, I didn’t feel like going out there into the drip, drip, dripping for a few pictures. But … where there’s a deck and a window or two, there are pictures. Even if they are similar to a lot of other pictures.
The most fun picture of the day was Garry. He was telling me how he gets tired of hearing how men aren’t interested in fashion. He has always been very interested in fashion and spends a fair amount of time deploring the terrible suits television announcers are wearing these days.
He cannot understand how people who have that much money and are on TV can’t look in the mirror and realize they look awful. Don’t they have friends who tell them the truth? Doesn’t anyone warn them the suit is too tight, wrong cut, wrong color, wrong … everything?
“HOLD THAT POSE!” I said, running for the camera. Good TV guy that he is, he held the pose and I got a few pictures that are just so very Garry. He looks like television Garry, the guy we all remember watching through the decades.
And of course, I went out to the deck to get a few shots of the woods which is now almost entirely bright yellow. I took a couple of dozen shots. All of them good because really … if you can’t take good pictures in New England in October, you should get rid of your camera and take up some other activity. Just saying.
