A slow night at work, so I'm shooting different subjects just for fun.
These are Teflon coated studs on a mirror.

Saturday Photo Ramble

 On a photo ramble with a friend Saturday, we saw plenty even though the weather wasn't ideal. Old barns, a lonely caboose, and some Brown Pelicans at a bait camp.

Fall is here and the leaves are changing. We don't get the massive displays other parts of the US get, so we enjoy what we can.

Got up early for  a doctor appointment only to find it was cancelled, so I went out and found some scenes to photograph.
These are at an old dairy that has been closed for years. The barn is sliding down.

Recent favorites of mine-

I enter a few contests now and then, nothing big time. Trouble is, I don't seem to get very high place finishes often. I have to step back and evaluate what I am doing in photography each time I am disappointed. I have decided that I am a photographer and will continue shooting, because I am really just doing it for myself.
I need to give myself credit and not undervalue what I do, while I have much to learn room to grow.

A family friend passed away recently. He was a volunteer firefighter much of his life and was honored with a memorial service which included a "Ring the Bell" service. As a firefighter, one is called to the fire by a bell, and as a deceased firefighter one is "rung out" by a Ring the Bell service.
Here is the bell-

Butterfly Flower seedpod

Made a visit just down our street to see Mr. & Mrs. Howard Johnson. Her flowers and his yard work are always great to see, and offer plenty of photo opportunities. Masca gnia macroptera. Butterfly vine seed pods really do look like butterflies.

Under the Oak

Under the Oak, originally uploaded by Noel C. Hankamer.
Cruising Alvin looking at all the big oak trees, I spied this swing and chair under one of the big trees. The house in the background with a flag is a bonus.

The radio was talking about a beautiful sunrise on my way home that morming, but I had to travel 10 miles to a spot without city and freeway messing up the composition.
