Which way to go on a bright, hot, murky summer’s day? I think we’re going to hit the grocery store, but not until late in the day. It is simply too hot and muggy to be outside right now.
I guess I have to do this because Marilyn hasn’t been outside much to do any shooting. This isn’t a great time of year, either. Everything is gray and muddy and there’s no color, either.
Which way is ever so much more complicated when you get involved with ships that have real rigging and masts and stuff. Nothing looks more beautiful on the water than a multi-masted ship … and nothing can be more complicated to find your way around! I’ve heard that submarines are really difficult, but the only submarine I was on was one of those 60-foot long hot dogs they use to look at the fish in the Caribbean. The big ones are for the military — and I’m not one of them!
Not much traveling this month. Just one short visit to Connecticut. I don’t think the grocery store really counts, but maybe our driveway does?
It has been raining more days this month than it has been clear. Forget about sunny. If it hasn’t been raining or snowing, it has been gray and gloomy.
Not great photography weather and not very inspiring for getting out there and shooting.
Haven’t been out on the road much, but I did manage to take a few shots when we were on our way back from Connecticut. I knew I would need some road pictures. And here they are.
We got stuck in a couple of hours of non-moving traffic which always gives me time to take a few shots. Not great shots, but … a little something.
A day in the yellow woods in Mendon. A place I always want to get pictures, but rarely find a place to safely put the car. The road is so twisty, and there is swamp on both sides of the road … and it is hard to see where the swamp begins and the earth ends.
But this time, we got lucky.
And got some pictures. Mostly mine because Garry kept not bringing a camera. I have since given him a pocket camera which hopefully will convince him to take some. He winds up borrowing mine, but two people on one camera don’t work well.
And finally, it stopped raining. The sun came out, the sky was a rich, bright blue and I can see the tree changing. If the weather holds, by the middle of next week, we should be a marvel of autumnal splendor.
Right now, it’s the maples that are brilliant. They are always the first. More will come. The majority of the color is along waterways which is also where you most typically find batches of maple trees.
We went out today and took a lot of pictures. There are so many, I’m not even sure where to start working on them, so I guess it will be a few at a time for various photo challenges.
Now I’ll go see what I can find for Which Way!
We found a place we thought we’d lost this week. What a great feeling to not be lost for a change! We took a lot of pictures and we will take more tomorrow because it probably won’t rain.
Which would be great since it has been raining all week. And most of the week before. Our rivers are at their crest. Another inch of rain and we will all be canoeing through downtown Uxbridge.
Lost again? No problem! Just follow us and you’ll discover places you’ve never seen (or even heard of) before. You will find nooks and crannies previously undiscovered by man or automobile!
Come with us as we ride the roads that go nowhere and walk down docks that end in the river. And wear washable shoes, because there is always plenty of sucking mud.
