    It's still the 23rd here, but my future looks extremely busy. So here's a shot I took around 4 hours before the 24th. Kiki is fascinated by "Goldie", the goldfish.

    Great photo - great moment. And the look on Kiki's face is.....priceless.

    Colors....and colors

    Well, I've got two entries for Day 24. The first has some gold in it, in honor of Golden October, but it's not the standard fall or autumn colors that seem to be everywhere here in Southern Oregon. Instead, it's bright moss - growing on a volcanic rock - at 'Fort Rock', over in Central Oregon where both the weather and the landscapes seem harsher, more extreme.

    The second - and I couldn't resist - is a small mound of brightly-colored discarded bottles and cans, at Summer Lake, also in Central Oregon, taken on a bracingly cold, clear and sunny high desert morning.

    From Angelic Pigeon Killer....to Little Angel.....isn't really that much of a stretch.

    I'm glad you didn't keep trying until you got it right - or got in an accident!

    Even though you explained what it is, I still cannot figure it out. Rainy glass with a street light outside? I love it either way - reminds me of the background of a Klimt painting.

    The setting sun, was shinning through the pebble finish door glass. I focused on the glass, from inside the house, looking out.The gold look, is exactly what I saw, but only lasted a short while, and was gone as the sun fully set.
