Spire? Finial?

I’m not sure the name for the decorative “red thing” above — but I think it’s cool, as well as the fact that it coordinates with the building’s roof, window trimming AND the adjacent tree leaves. 🙂 Downtown Anderson.

Happy Thanksgiving

“Even a blind pig finds an acorn…” You know the saying. 🙂 I’m proud of this pic, but also aware that it’s a lucky accident.

The word lucky makes me think of the good things in my life. I’m grateful: a loving family, kind friends, a good job, a nice camera. But I’m not any better or more deserving than folks without those things. God gives hard-road gifts, too. I’m never thankful for those. Hmmm…I guess if I believe all things come from a loving God, I should be.

It was an overcast day — perfect for photography. Hope you like the colors of downtown. (Taken last week thereabouts.)

Fall Color

Filed under: Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving — lessie @ 10:25 pm

A reader asked for Fall color — and FINALLY I captured some! This season has been rough in getting good autumn pictures. I struggled with the slight differences in the above pic and this pic. Which do you prefer?

Lots of Rain

Filed under: Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving — lessie @ 9:52 pm

We’ve been receiving lots and lots of rain lately — but who can complain after all that drought…I may never forget what crunchy grass feels and sounds like. Though I often bring a light coat to work now, the flowers haven’t been nipped by the frost yet.

Fall Leaves

Filed under: Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving — lessie @ 9:39 pm

A reader recently e-mailed me asking for pictures of fall leaves. With the rain and my work schedule, I have a pitiful amount of such pictures! Above is my best right now. (Is it just me or are the leaves not as pronounced as in years past?) Many thanks for reading — and I will continue to be on the alert for good fall leaves for good autumn photos. 🙂

One of my clever neighbors has this delight on her front patio. Couldn’t resist a pic. Happy Halloween!

Even Better Lighted

At first I thought this pumpkin sported only a cute “Oh” expression. Upon closer inspection…BATMAN! Cute, huh?

Fall, Finally Here

Filed under: Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving — lessie @ 2:10 am

If you (like me) have a smaller monitor, you can view this photo here. Otherwise, for all you wide-monitor folks — hope you like dried, stalky stuff as much as I do. Must be my sentimental side. 🙂

Hard Hat Needed

Filed under: Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving — lessie @ 2:20 pm

Just down the street, enormous oaks form a shady canopy over the houses and yards. It’s wonderful — but a bit jarring this time of year. As we stood chatting in front of a neighbor’s home, small acorn-shaped missiles fell on the grass, the driveway, the car, and your head! Those suckers hurt!
