Bear Creek Road Trip

      
Went on a road trip recently, with my wife, to look for Fall colors. Bear Creek Road was our target. The first two photos were ones that I took and the last two were taken by my wife. I sort of like hers better. Let me know what you think...

Yeah, that is yours truly in the last photo. My wife snuck that one in on me when I was not looking.

BTW, that is Bear Creek itself that you see in a couple of these photos. The full length of Bear Creek Road runs along this stream. Hence - Bear Creek Road... :-)

Early Fall In The Neighborhood


This past week has really set me back. Monday morning I started coming down with a cold; must have sneezed over 100 times that day. At my age getting a cold is not a good thing. By Tuesday I was hit hard; sneezing, runny nose, sinus pressure and pain, cough, sore throat and some chest congestion, but no fever. All I wanted was to take off my head so that I would feel good. It is now Friday and I am just starting to get back some strength and am feeling much better.

So, I have not been able to get out and drive anywhere to do any photography. However, as I state in the column to your right called - The Reason For Riff's Photography Journal - "The purpose of this journal is to show that you can find something of interest to photograph even if you don't leave your own yard." I decided to practice what I preach and I went outside and took the following images of an early Fall as seen from my yard. I hope they are something in which you enjoy...

After looking at these images I am very glad that I have a camera that knows how to take very good photos... :-)

Country Home

While out on a recent Sunday Drive, we came across this rather large Country Home nestled quite nicely down in a wide valley. You could take my little four room home and place it anywhere in this building and it would most likely fit, I do believe...

Not Black and White TV

      
Please click on the photo for a better image...

As stated, this is not a picture on an old style black and white TV. This is a view through the exit door window of an Amtrak Train at the Western Maryland Station in Cumberland, MD.

Since I am as old as I am the first thing that I thought, when I first saw this view, was that, if this was in black and white, this look is what television was like when it first came out back in the late 40's and early 50's.

Television screens had rounded corners and all the programs were live. This view had both elements of the era...
