It’s that time again. I know from the flood of emails, twitters, instant messages, and skywriting that you have all been on the edge of your seats. If you are new to my blog, this is a project I began in April and anyone who has a blog is welcome [begged even] to participate.
The guidelines are simple:
This is a photography meme.
1. Step out your front door and take a picture.
2. Step out your back door and take a picture.
3. Put them on your blog, along with the rules.
4. If there are things in the photos that you particularly like or dislike, you can point them out, or just explain what we are seeing. Maybe changes over the seasons or some junk in your neighbor’s yard that drives you nuts.
5. Tag as many or few people as you like – preferably at least one though.
6. Do it again next month if you like.
Could not be easier, right? I don’t care where you live, what you see when you step out your door is different than what the rest of us see outside ours and that is what makes it interesting.
Here are mine for November. It’s the first day of deer season here and just raining buckets. Riley is a mess, as he will be for the next 3 weeks because the sound of guns firing completely wigs him out. It is difficult to take photos with a 60lb wimpering, shaking dog glued to your side so I am glad for my tripod and shutter remote.
I cheated and took the back door shot through the kitchen window. Like I am taking my new baby out in the rain? I think not, even for such a prestigous project as this. All the leaves are gone [name that song/group] now and the skies are……. Never mind, sometimes I forget what I am doing. Anyway – this time of year really bothers some people, but I like the subtle colors and how the textures have changed now that we can see all the branches and twigs.Out front we can see a lot farther now. I had to keep waiting for the pickup trucks full of orange clad weekend mighty hunters to pass by so they weren’t in the shot. If I were a deer, I would get at least a little sense of satisfaction out of seeing these guys riding in the back of trucks in the pouring rain. I am not anti-hunting by the way. I like venison and I would much prefer that someone shoot a deer than I hit it with my car. The main thing that jumps out at me in this photo is that I have somehow managed to miss one of the hummingbird feeders – I will get that when it stops raining.
If you want to look at the changes here over the last 8 months you can scroll through them here. Let me know if you decide to participate by leaving a comment.
I will be back later with a perfect fall cookie recipe – quick, go buy some molasses if you don’t have any. Blessings on your day!
