Autumn Arriving



Autumn seems to be showing up somewhat early this year. Took this photo a few days ago with my old iPhone.

In fact, I have been using my iPhone for most of my photography for over a year and I am loving it...

I really enjoy getting up early on a sunshiny morning, especially when there is some fog to soften the sun's light...

Down That Long Hallway



At the end of your life, through what door will you pass...?

John 3: 36 reveals our choices in this life before we reach the door at the end...

"He that believeth on the Son (Jesus) hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him..."

Daylily



Weather, lately, has been hot and wet. Daylily's like hot and sunny times. So I was surprised to go out early one morning to find this beauty all by herself. Now, she will live on for as long as this photograph lasts...

1943 Bungalow





Built in 1943 with a concrete block foundation overlaid with large railroad ties to hold the framing for the house.

It is a great little home for retirement which is why we bought it; easy care, comfortable, and warm...

Cool Front Porch



What a way it would be, to spend a hot Summer's day here on a cool shady porch. A nice cup or glass of your favorite beverage in hand, sitting in a relaxing easy chair and listening to the running of a clear cool brook in the ravine below just a couple of yards off the front of your porch.

Sigh, if only this were mine...

Ava - The Watcher



Kids learn a lot, when growing up, while watching others. Hear Ava was watching an Uncle out in the yard working on something. She definitely was watching intensely at what he was doing... Actually making faces at her. I can just imagine what Ava was thinking...

A Rebel Like Me



I never wanted to be like others when I was in high school back in the 60's. I wanted to be myself and not do or be like everyone else.

So, I became sort of like a rebel. Because I did it became easy to stand apart from everyone else. Just like this flower. Except I do not believe that anyone back then would have called me a flower.. 😉

Rustic Campsite Fireplace



As a kid in the 50's and 60's I loved camping out, especially when I was in Scouting.

In the 80's my wife and I took our kids camping many times and we all had a great time.

I keep this site in a back corner of our yard as a reminder of those wonderful days...

Like a forest that thickly grows
blocking light with hazy rows.

Memories of my past go away alone
into another time, into a twilight zone...
