Sky Watch Friday!

tree-riffic

Spending a few hours with a brother-in-law whose company I always enjoy, having just received a nifty home-audio hand-me-down, I stood next to my car. It felt like everything was right in the world at that particular moment. The air was fresh and clean, the leaves were a crunchy topping for his thick, cushiony grass. Then I looked up, and couldn't decide which I liked more... the sky or the tree. So I drew my camera and collected them both.

Pretty picture. I love crunchy leaves. We had some snow too soon and it made them soggy so I didn't get a chance to crunch 'em and kick 'em around... =)
Have an enjoyable weekend!

Thanks! That means a lot coming from a genius! :)

Actually, it means a lot to him anyway. By the way, we've been staying up late watching the World Series. His favorite player, Evan Longoria is playing. Timothy got a ball autographed by him this past Spring when he was on the Olympic team. He played the team in Taiwan, and we got to go see them play. So fun!

The Autumn leaves fall softly.
I like this picture.
We are all kids at heart and to scuff through fallen leaves, is as good as jumping in puddles, when you dont have boots on.
Thank you for sharing it with us.

Cravester! Thank you so much for the gorgeous picture of Autumn in lovely Chicagoland! I was just saying to my wife, Anne of the House, that the one thing I REALLY miss about Illinois/Michigan is the fall colors! I've missed you!

Louise said...

I wouldn't be able to decide, either. I'm glad you got them both. It is an EXCELLENT photo!

Hi Carver VII
you asked if the Arrow Head had been altered in any way.
No it was just as taken by Lord L.
It was the accute angle which caught his eye.
Dewdrop tells me that it is a contrail.
Thanks for you visit. Have a good week.
