Cleaning the Closet

My mom is getting up there in years and she asked for some help in the closet.  She wanted to move her summer accessories to the top shelf of her closet and get her winter purses down.  I kid you not she must have 50 purses in there.  So I asked her if she could possibly donate some.  She was not thrilled with the idea.  She wanted me to take some.  So I picked out a few and also found  binoculars.  But the real mother lode was 2 vintage cameras she totally forgot she had .  They were hidden behind her first camera ever: a BROWNIE.  I asked if I could have them for decoration...being a photobuff and all.  So she gave me 2 out of three.  She just could not part with the Brownie.  Im guessing it is back in the closet.  When I got them home and really examined them,  I was surprised to find the DUAFLEX still had film in it.  This is a story to be continued.

A Mid Week Post of FALL Glory and Delaware Chews at home.

It was such a happy lunch with Hubby and Nephie made happier with Ruthy who grabbed this shot...well she wasnt very familiar with Olympia so I helped it out a bit with some post processing to adjust the exposure, a little burning to help that along...and finally a crop.  THANKS RUTHY for giving me something to work with so I could have this image with Aaron.
Woke up on Monday to a very foggy river..took me so long to get out there that most of it had burned off with the sun coming up.

Then it became a stay at home and do something with all those tomatoes I picked at the farm last week so I tried something new from my cooking with bean book and have to say it was pretty tasty. 
Kinda like refried beans covered with a corn bread topping.  ALL RED OF COURSE cept for the beans which were black.  YUMMY.

FALL COLORS  Short lens
long lens:  both from dock

HEY NAN...hope you are well and enjoying the Florida warm...

I Let A Week Go By OH MY


 What a cool exhibit I was able to attend this week at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, all about manipulating photograhs prior to and after digital imaging...I only wish I could do what some of my friends are able to do.
Thanks GG I got some good laughs with that.
But I can desaturate and go to black and white with some degree of success
and I can boost fall colors captured on a ride by.

I did not have to boost the vintage bikes we saw  at the Montgomery Cycle Center on our ride today.  Thankfully they had big windows and Olympia was successful in the low light situation.
The Pipers Tavern was very cool...although the food COULD have used a boost.
looked good.
And lastly we took an unexpected turn into a LLAMA farm...
Could not have asked for a better Fall day.
Did I say LLAMA?  I meant Lavender Farm, although there were some llamas there. 
Ill have to go back when the lavender is in bloom.

Im getting myself all confused with all these images I have been collecting lately...
Friday was a magnificent day and I went up to shoot a property for my friend Dan, owner
of the Seasons Garden Center.

           Since it was Friday we went to the Inn.  YUMMY giant shrimp cocktail as the sun goes down

And me and hubby played footsies hehehhehehe

Saturday we ended up at VAN SANT AIRPORT which is great fun and just happened to be there as a bunch of planes where ready to do a fly by in MILFORD, PA...we were close.


I couldnt believe how many people came out on Sunday for the Kitchen Garden tour as it rained on and off most of the day.

good thing there was some Hot Apple Cider in a barn for guests to get cozy.

Sometimes you just have to take a walk in the rain


 It is much better if you can wait for the rain to stop and then walk.  Not too many folks out and about when the weather is like this and I kinda like it that way.  The woods are quiet except for the sounds of the leaves falling and the residual rain dropping through the trees, bouncing from limb to limb, resting for a moment on a yellow leaf before slipping to the forest floor.  The wet leaves barely crunch as you step on them.  Yes, I like a walk in a wet woods.
