Today was one of those golden halcyon days, although it didn’t begin that way. It was dark and raining on the way to school, where little things began to go wrong. By mid-morning however, the sun burst through the clouds that have covered us for the past several days and suddenly everything seemed a little better.
Today one of the teachers noticed that my right rear tire was almost flat. Between him and the athletic director, I had air in my tire before I left work and I didn’t even have to leave my desk. Or ask for help. It was just given.
I love working where I do.
I drove the Element to the local tire shop, where they fixed a bad valve stem. And in 20 minutes, I was on my way again ~ headed home to take a walk in the late afternoon sun.
Although I’m somewhat ashamed to admit it, I shot the above photo on the auto dial in portrait mode with the ISO set to autol, focusing on the fence closest to me. I’ve been trying to get away from the auto dial but sometimes it’s just so darn easy to use.
I layered it with a Kim Klassen texture called autumnart, then another called earthernware framed . I like the blurry sometimes.
I know it looks like the house is on a hill here, and it is, but not this pronounced. It looks that way because I was lying on the ground when I took this photo, focusing on the leaves. I layered this one with autumnart.
I found this picture on the disk the other day and after cropping it, ran Florabella’s gypsy action, finishing it off with another Kim Klassen texture called golden. I love golden and used it on my husband’s shot of the dragonfly below.
I think this music video is interesting.
The shadow puppet part is my favorite.
Have a beautiful Friday, all. Until tomorrow, then.
