Sixteen years ago today our country changed for ever when it was attacked without provocation by Al–Qaeda! That aside I have been absent from my blog for several weeks only posting occasionally mainly family events.
So this morning I go to the doctor to have a series of tests to find out what is going on with my health. I am prepared for the worst but hoping for the best. I apologize for letting the blog languish for these many weeks.
I have lost my passion for creativity because of other worries. Hopefully after tomorrow I can get that all behind me and get back to doing what I love the most, which is taking images.
Last night as I was eating dinner I notice the setting sun casting this beautiful light (with shadows) on some pebbles on our patio. I was motivated to grab a camera and make an image. 🙂
Thanks for your support.
Enjoy your day and be careful.
Happy New Year’s Eve. 2014 was an interesting year for me. Several dramatic changes in my life mainly related to my health.
It was the year of drones that went up and came down in unexpected and disastrous ways. The fleet is grounded now still not airworthy but that may change in 2015. I continued to practice photography and feel like I made modest improvement. No where near where I want to be but as my friend says it a journey.
I shot 43 images of this sunset Sunday evening. I had narrowed it down to four images and this morning I cut it down to two. I just couldn’t decide which one to post so I finally decided to post them both.
I also decided to change the header for the blog because I like this sunset better than the other and it is after all the beginning of a new year.
We are going to celebrate new year’s eve with some great friends. We haven’t gone anywhere but to the movies on new year’s eve in years so this will be a change for us.
To my good friend who is under the weather right now, you are in my prayers.
I hope you have a safe and reasonably sane new year’s eve. Thanks for your support this past year and as always please be careful.
I have some farm scenes for you today. My friend Betty loves farm scenes as I do so that is what get this day.
I ran into a friend yesterday who is scheduled to have cataract surgery in January. She was wanting to know how my procedure went. She said a couple of her friends have already had it and they said it was a walk in the park. I told her that most of the people I talked to said the same thing. I guess I’m the anomaly because I’m still struggling with the eye.
The flickering and movement is very annoying and even this morning the itching and soreness is bothersome.
Having said that I’m not complaining nor looking for any symptom. I’m just stating what my experience has been with this procedure. I think sometimes once you’ve gone through something and it is several months or a couple of years later you tend to remember it differently than you do while you are actually experiencing it. Additionally it is obvious that some people have more issues with a medical procedure than others.
I have a life friend who is recovering from knee replacement. I know that what she is going through has been difficult and compared to her challenge this is nothing. Enough about medical stuff. Yuk!
I was taking a new employee around to meet people from some of our banks yesterday, that she is going to be working with. On the way back to town the light was perfect but I didn’t have a camera with me.
There were a couple of times that she became a little nervous when I would hit the rumble strips on the side of the road looking at the wonderful light on the freshly harvested fields. Many of them had combines sitting there with hoppers full of the yellow grain. Sigh, but no camera.
That’s all I have for you today. Hope you enjoy your Friday. Thanks for stopping by the blog and be careful.
