Looking down our road
Laundry dries on our deck
Orange leaves, blue sky
Leaves on the 1949 Studebaker pickup truck
Rowboat on the bay
Love your perspective in the first shot. And the yellow tree is very stunning.
Hi, Karma. Hope you enjoyed your day at work. The first shot (of course) is the telephoto lens. However–here’s where the Sony Cybershot came through–the yellow tree came from Ms. Cybershot. Thank you.
Is this the most beautiful October Michigan has ever known? We may have had a brighter fall in 1970, but the combination this year of color and calm, warm days has been fantastic. I love looking down your road, too, Kathy.
It certainly is an incredible October, Pamela. I’m voting for this summer as well. Barry suggested that the view down the road from our house looks more appealing through the camera than it is in everyday reality. That may be the case. Although it is pretty.
Kathy – Great shots, all. My favorite is “Leaves on the 1949 Studebaker pickup truck.”
Laurie, I love how that one leaf stands out in the front, don’t you? It’s such an independent leaf.
Yes, the car is great!
elenasc, I shall tell my husband your compliment. Thank you!
I really like the view off your deck! The laundry is just where it should be too. What a place to dry!
I don’t put the laundry out there too often, Christine. But it always smells so good after drying in the wind.
The photo of your road is such a great non-claustrophobic photo of the U.P. It has it all: a hill, sky, water, woods, space! Love the rowboat and, of course, the beloved Studebaker. What an amazing Oct… each day full of magic…
Long telephone lens = non-claustrophobic photo! Did you like the rowboat? I thought it looked so quaint sitting down at the end of the bay.
I’m enjoying autumn vicariously through you.
Thrilled to provide you with some of our autumn sights, smells and tastes. OK, maybe just sights & a few words, lol!
The Fall is the best time to take pictures, don’t you think? Looks like your Fall leaves were much more colorful than mine this year. (i posted a few Fall pictures this week, too.)
bearyweather, fall is awesome for photography! I got so frustrated last year because it seemed impossible to capture the large vistas of color. Could only focus on individual trees. It is making me happy to get a larger view this year. (will check out your blog soon!)
Kathy, the view down your road must surely be one of your many blessings! It must be lovely, driving to work and seeing this every day…. in all of it’s many moods and seasons. I’m imagining that there are many stories that have unfolded along that road over the years.
Did I ever tell you the story about how I hated it when we first moved to the Upper Peninsula? How many years it took to learn to love and appreciate “its many moods and seasons”?? I could probably tell at least ten interesting stories of some adventures seen along this road. What a good idea for another blog some day!
Would it be okay if I brought the girls over so we could walk down your road? Such a perfect road to walk, I think. And then I could enjoy firsthand all those other things you took pictures of. So perfect!
Yes, Carol. We’ll see you tonight after dinner. We’ll take your girls and we’ll go down to the eagle pond. Maybe we’ll see a bald eagle. 🙂
Oh I want to live on YOUR street! 🙂
So do I! So do I! 🙂 And the contrast of those luminescent orange leaves against the blue sky was just … WOW! Well done, Ms Cybershot.
Reggie, I just had to show off the fact that Ms. Cybershot can take some magnificent pictures. After I talked up the Canon so much and showed Ms. Cybershot’s faults. She seems to do particularly well with the color yellow. Wonder why?
There’s probably a very good technical reason why Ms C excels at yellow, but personally I think she was just trying to remind you that she has always been there for you throughout your many months of blogging, that she taught you how to see the world from a different perspective, and that she deserves to be honoured for that. If she hadn’t taught you the basics of photography, you wouldn’t be where you are now – a highly creative, observant photographer with an eye for the unusual and the unexpected. So, hugs to Ms Cybershot for being such an awesome teacher!
Dawn, you’re one of the closest readers. You actually may even see this street one of these days.
Finding your blog(s) is one of the nicest things to happen to me in a long time. You and your friends are wonderful! Living UP here only part time, I don’t meet many people outside of my own neighborhood. You have given me a wonderful insight and perspective on life North of Whirl-I-Gig Road.
John, it is very nice to meet you. Your comment made me smile all day yesterday! “Life north of the Whirl-I-Gig Road”. Never thought of it that way before! I will stop by and visit your blog, as well.
Yep, we are around back behind your husbands office and up the hill. I used to try to split my time 50-50 between the flatlands and L’Anse, but it is working out to a little less these days. Your writing makes me feel like I’m there and walking the same path for a short period of time while I’m reading. Thank you for sharing it with us!
That’s good to know. Yep, I can imagine where you live, within the block. Hope you get to spend lots of days here in the next few months. If not, I’ll show you pictures!
Thank you, Robin. It’s been the most beautiful October.
I’ve spent all autumn trying and trying to take a photo that does justice to the beauty of the leaves….have I said this recently? Hmmmm… I think I have but it’s frustrating! And you, my dear, have done a fabulous job of it…. 🙂
Hey John….Where ’bouts in the UP do you live? Welcome, welcome to our little ‘neighborhood’ here in Kathy’s world!
Cindy, I know that frustration well. There is such beauty surrounding us, and our little cameras will rarely do justice to it. I thank the new Canon for providing some wider-angle shots that bring in more range.
Great shots! Fall had fallen upon you!
Thanks, Jeff. Fall has fallen…and it’s almost gone, if we blink. lol!
Reggie, you made such a good point! Ms. Sony Cybershot and I are hugging you!
