“The person who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The person who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever seen before.” ― Albert Einstein
We had a wonderful day. The coolness and smell of fall and yet no need for a jacket. Even as leaves begin their fall we must remember to look up. Nature is at work their also.
The above image is very abstract and confusing. It is the fiberglass cover at the bus stop. The paint and color of the fiberglass has faded over time and is almost transparent. So, I framed it as an abstract and shot it in black and white.
Found along the Fisher Natural Area Trail. One of my favorite areas to walk that’s near my condo.
“You can not purchase a meaningful life. You can only live it, one day at a time.”
I watched the supermoon from my condo, having no real interest in shooting images of it. However, I changed my mind and took a half dozen shots. Since I no longer have a focal length greater than 55mm this is it. I like how it turned out, giving a view of what the human eye sees rather than the typical closeup. This tree is in my front yard so I framed the moon with it and allowed the street light to illuminate the tree.
Bicycles are everywhere on and off campus. After taking this image and continuing my walk home I had all these silly questions come to mind. This shows you how disturbed my mind is.
- First question is identifying my bike. Now where did I lock up my bike?
- And when I can’t locate it, “Is this the bicycle rack or is it on the south side?”
- Did someone steal it?
- Oh oh! There are two with a red rim wheel on front and green rim wheel on the rear. Which one is mine?
- Wait! Was mine green on the front and red on the rear? I’m confused now.
- Now that’s cool. Maybe I should buy a ringer like that. Wonder where they bought it.
- Now that I found it, I can’t remember the combination to the lock?
As I look at this image I wonder how do they know which one is theirs and where did they put it?
There is an atrium at Colorado State University’s Morgan Library. I find this area a wonderful place for students, and ex-students, to hang out and study while sipping on a coffee. There is no piped in music so it is quiet and peaceful. As I write this post the leaves are fluttering like snowflakes all around me. This is a favorite time of the year for me as the temperatures are enjoyable, both night and day. But, it also is a reminder that real snowflakes will be arriving sooner than I want.
There is a coffee shop just inside the library called Morgan’s Grind. They have a decent cup of coffee, as well as lattes, both at very reasonable prices. The shop must have 15 tables and each will have at least one student camped with books and laptop. Now if you show up at 7:00 am when they open, you can have your pick of tables. No students will be found at that early. Along the east window is a bar for students to study or read the campus newspaper.
Anyway it’s that time of year!
