We have a fence around the back of our property which Greg keeps locked to keep the little kids away from the ditch. That ditch has always made me nervous with the kids. This year it has been full all year. Most years it alternates between wet and dry.Yeah, those things can be deadly.
Some 15 years ago, my son and 2 friends were getting ready to head over to India for a few months (they were sick of college!). On the same day, in 3 separate locations all 3 kids had "nearer my God to thee" experiences. My son rolled his car at 80mph on the freeway out side Missoula (not even a scratch on him, car was totaled. The second got knocked unconscious by a water ski and was airlifted to Spokane. The third was sucked into a downspout in an irrigation ditch SW of Boise. Of the 3, he had the most serious trauma and the longest recovery.
My thinking was that the golds and browns in the grasses on the ditch bank were mirrored in the rusts and yellows on the rail cars.Hi Terri, an eclectic mix of subjects for sure, to, as the song goes, forget about life for a while.
Out of curiosity, what's the subject in the "fall colours are starting" image?
Amazing what you can find close to home!! Glad photography helped you cope, too!!Hi Terri
I was what we call "Down in the dumps" not long ago photography wise that is. this covid19 virus had us in lockdown for a long time then only allowed to have one walk a day around the houses. Great inspiration to take photos I don't think. so resorted to taking insects in our garden instead and to have a go at macro.
