Need to make more mistakes

Last of the season

Last of the season

“If you’re not making mistakes, you might as well hang the camera up.” Joe McNally

Probably one the last flowers we will see this year as the weather changes and fall approaches. Mornings are cooler as we had 43 degrees at 6:30 am. The temperature swing can be large this time of the year as we are expecting a high of 83 degrees this afternoon. Jacket in the morning and short sleeves by afternoon. Probably need to make more mistakes.

Out of Town

Song of Sharon

Song of Sharon

Nancy has given my good friend Don a 24 hour pass so he and I are leaving in an hour to an area in the mountains call Red Feather Lakes. We will spend the night at his cabin which is located along the shore of one of the seven lakes that make up the Red Feather Lakes area. We will get in some hiking, a little laughter while making bodily orifice sounds and solve a few of the world’s problems. A guy thing.  🙂

More Flowers

“Courage is not only the willingness to face uncertainty but to embrace it, to collaborate with it.” David duChemin 

Another image taken at the CSU Experimental Gardens. We have had overcast skies and a lite rain for the past few days. This brings cooler temperatureS and higher humidity, so this morning I’m wearing a jacket. Forecast is for the same weather the next four days.

It Was an Accident

Rose of Sharon

While wandering around the backyard of my sisters I decided to take an image of this Rose of Sharon. After pressing the shutter buton I noticed a pause in the camera and a message in my EVF that said saving. This is not normal. So after some troubleshooting I discovered I’d somehow moved the drive dial to Adv1 setting. This had placed to camera into creating an image to duplicate a toy camera. I liked how they adjusted the image. So, by accident I found something I will use in some situations. This the untouched image it produced.

Setting Apart One Day



“In the life of the Indian there is only one inevitable duty – the duty of prayer – the daily recognition of the Unseen and Eternal. He sees no need for setting apart one day in seven as holy days, since to him all days are God’s.” Ohiyesa, Santee Dakota
