By the light of the Silvery Moon...

Driving home I stopped to shoot this across the large bay. It was hazy with the palest of blue gray tree lines out there. Not a clear shot to begin with as I don't shoot with a camera with a long lens. The benefit is some of the blurry shots are the most fun to enhance with digital filters.

I'm out of practice so my hands are a bit stiff for paper cutting. When given a warm up, they love to get back to it. Though I enjoy cutting a variety of things , hearts are one of those elemental shapes I've never been able to resist. One of those things, like snow flakes, that shoot me right back in time. My gray haired versions may have more character than those from childhood but they've all been fun to snip away at.

It seems I'm beginning my fall wake-up cycle. This season is my favorite and sometimes I marvel at that fact since with it comes stiffened fingers, cold toes and the like. Like they say, this aging stuff isn't for sissies. Still, something about the wonderful colors, amazing scents and that quieting of nature as it prepares for a long winters sleep lifts me up.
The lovely sunflowers a dear friend brought to work to cheer my day, after losing my kitty buddy this month, have been magic to watch as they have moved from garden fresh to crispy and twisted. Striking in each stage, just as the seasons ahead will be. Hope you can get out there and enjoy it all!
