    I got my wife to come along for dog walks tonight. I added some drama (weird color) in post.

    Took this picture earlier today with my new (slightly used, actually, but new to me) ultra wide angle lens, a Rokinon 7.5mm fisheye which, to my delight, can be modified with special Lightroom custom lens profiles to produce different variations on the traditional fisheye FOV. This one uses a 'stereographic' mapping effect...but in simple English, it's rather fun.

    The subject is my home, an old farmhouse that is 111 years old; as you can see, the trees here are turning from green to yellow.

    Day 23: I appreciate the golden hues of this bug-eaten log post. Notice how he entered the tree bark as a small bug, then began eating his way northish. As he ate, he got bigger, and the channel gets deeper and fatter.

    Is that a walnut in the front yard? What a lovely house! 401 N. Poplar, the house I lived in for 30 years, was built in the 20's I think, so it wasn't quite so old as this, but it looked a lot like it - especially that porch! We had walnuts all around it, even over our bedroom roof. When they fell in the Fall, it was a little like living in a war zone! You know you're getting old and sentimental when seeing someone else's house that reminds you of one you've moved on from brings tears to your eyes. Beautiful photo!

    Yes, TheRubySusan, it IS a walnut - but the particular variety is a black walnut, which are incredibly hard to crack, alas, and they do fall abundantly in the fall.

    Ours were black walnut too. I don't even care for walnuts, but Jim did. One year he went to great lengths in the fall to remove the green husks from several paper grocery bags full of walnuts. He put them out on the front porch, which was screened in, but it had a cat door and some quite considerable holes in the screen. A few weeks later, he went out to enjoy the first fruits of his labor, and the squirrels had stolen EVERY single walnut out of the bags! I don't know where most of them went, but we had a small stash of firewood along the front steps, and every time we picked up a piece of wood, we found a walnut under it!

    So today I'm complaining because it's a beautiful day, and I'm dying to go out and shoot, and I have to get space cleared away so I can bring the houseplants, which were out in the garden all summer, in from their temporary refuge against the cold in the garage. I'd complain if they hung me with a new rope!

    'Just a Grab Shot When We Got Home

    Same ole' pumpkin, (or at least one of them), we just got home in time to see a bit of sun still around. XE-1. ISO 640, processed in LR5.
    Hoping to get out a bit this weekend. (Insert sigh here.)
