This was taken on Curve Road while on my way to, what I eventually found out, my last day at work for The Sunbury News/Delaware Gazette newspapers.
I dunno.. maybe this scene was God's way of telling me to see the beauty in every day, to be glad and rejoice in it.

I love this photo! This leaf hitched a ride on my driver's side window when I left my drive this morning and was still on there when I pulled over for lunch over 4 hours later! So of course, I had to record his epic travels. Not sure when it finally decided it had arrived at it's destination. :-)

This morning, Barbara and I left the house on our bikes in 37 degree temps to ride an hour up to Mount Vernon, OH for the Salvation Army's First Annual Toy Ride. Of course, I left my good cameras at home on the counter. This photo was taken with me Verizon LG cell phone, so the quality is crappy.
It's after the 40 mile Toy Ride (on top of the hour ride to get there) and everyone's going into the Salvation Army for a much needed chili lunch. YUM!

If you've been following this Project 365 Blog for any length of time you know by now that one of my favorite places to visit is Joe Thurston's "Doodle Dips Hershey Ice Cream Shop" in Sunbury.
Well, now I have a whole new reason to stop in there; his new selection of "gourmet" hot dogs. He has a menu of five or six specialty ones and the choice for today's lunch was difficult. Guess that means I'll just have to visit him again REAL soon.
Check out these two great tasting dogs. My favorite one was the Slaw Dog. He makes his own slaw, sweet and crisp!

On my way home. I kept looking for something interesting to photograph. Nothing. Zilch. Sooo, while waiting for the light to change at Cooper Rd. and Schrock, I just clicked a few frames out the window at the trees that line the road.
Gotta wonder what the people in the car behind me were thinking.

Our "Egg Lady", where we go to buy fresh eggs, had this nice fall arrangement set up by her driveway. I was sicker than a dog but was tired of being cooped up in the house so I rode along with Barbara. I took the photos from the car window.. after I had Barbara back up, pull forward.. no, back up a bit more.. more... more.. there! :-)

Can't seem to find anything around you that's interesting enough to shoot? Look up! Ya never know what's overhead. I snapped several shots of this old Turkey Vulture flying above me. He must have smelled my socks. This one was the most interesting as I liked how his wing tips were spread.

The trees, they are a changin'.
That is always quite evident along the rivers and lakes and even though you can't see the trees in this photo, their reflection tells the story. And as an added bonus, a little wildlife. This heron on the left didn't seem bothered at all by the drake mallard swimming past him. In fact, the duck swam back and forth a few times.
It was a very peaceful view.

Oh my. Totally threw the ol' "watching our weight" plan right out the window today! Ever since late Friday evening Barbara and I both had a hankering for a good donut, so this morning we got up and headed over to HoneyDip Donuts, had a nice breakfast of eggs and sausages and then walked out with this box of yummies.
A few today. A few on Sunday.
Well, okay. Maybe more than just a few. :-)

I re-visited the park today. The weather has been awesome this week!
I like this photo as it shows the transition of the fall colors. It's as if they are doing battle to see which one will survive. Well, we all know the outcome of this scenario! Better enjoy it while we can.

This is actually a photo of a deer that was along the road I was driving down. Well, it would have been one of a deer if I had been prepared. I had the wrong setting on my camera and the shutter stayed open for several seconds and while I swung it up to change it, this blurry, motion-filled abstract was created.
I like this. It's what I call a "happy accident". Works for me!

I left work about 15 minutes later than usual today with still no photo for my daily "Project 365". So, I pulled into Alum Creek State Park to shoot a completely different photo than what you see here. I'll save that idea for another day. Today, I want to share this pretty little doe. She was with a group of 4 and was the only one curious enough to stand still for a few shots with my zoom lens.
I thank her for that.

I came home from church this morning and found yet another reminder that fall is going ahead as planned whether I want it to or not. It's not that I dislike fall. I just don't like what comes after it. Perhaps.. and I am hoping this to be true.. this winter things will be different for me and I will be able to even enjoy it. We'll see. In the mean time, I can't help but like the beautiful fall leaves such as this one in my drive way.

My cousin Ralph lives in Marion and I live in Columbus. Whenever we can find time to hook up for a few hours, we meet at a certain parking spot in the Polaris Mall area of southern Delaware County. Today we found such a time. I arrived about 15 minutes earlier than him but that was okay as I was enjoying sitting there listing to a new Glenn Kaiser CD. I had a loud, rockin' good time.
