Well, I probably didn’t get the kind of looks that these guys did, after all, I didn’t have on a kilt, but … Last night I stayed a work a little bit late (late for me, that is). An architectural photographer had been in the area all day, taking pictures of the office space, of execs, etc. Well, a little after 6:00 PM, most everyone had cleared out except for the photographer, the lady who’d been helping him all day…

This morning I woke up, checked the weather app on my phone and found that the conditions outside were, shall we say, less that agreeable. It was 16 degrees. Thankfully, inside of the house it was a tad bit warmer. I looked out into the backyard and noticed this fella hunched in the grass, patiently waiting for the first rays of sunlight I supposed.

I saw the light in this picture in my…

The first of November roared into Charlotte bringing lots of rain and high winds. Pretty much all day, there was a very stiff breeze, around 20 – 25 MPH, perhaps. During the late afternoon, around 3 I would suppose, the clouds parted for a bit and let the sunshine grace us for a couple of hours on the last day of Daylight Saving’s Time. I was out doing a little shopping, not at, but near Target and I happened upon…

I’ve been checking back, now and again, to see how the fall colors are progressing. Alas, they are pretty muted this year; however, there is one tree that I can always count on, every year. It’s not let me down in 3 falls in a row. It’s in McDowell Nature Preserve and it stands at the edge of the water, very close to the tree in the other post with all of the fishing lines. It too is a great…
