A Memory Lane Picture

Every now and then I take a photo that evokes a memory lane trip. Somehow it reminds me of the past. These shots, of the little red wagon loaded with leaves, do just that. As I squeeze my eyes shut.......... I see two little boys, raking up piles of leaves only to run through them and spread them out again, covering each other up in them, posing for momma to take pictures of them, loading them into their wagon and hauling them to another spot, laughing, playing and spending hours enjoying the simple things of life, like little red wagons, and piles of colorful leaves. When I open my eyes again, the little boys are gone, they are all grown up now, in the place of the little boys, I see two fine young men. What a joy it has been to make this journey with them, and what a pleasant trip this little scene takes me on .....down memory lane

Fall In Tennessee

I love the warmth and beauty of spring and summer, and I always feel a little sadness as summer comes to a close. However..... I am awed by the beauty of the world arrayed in the glorious colors of fall. Here in Tennessee we had a beautiful fall season. The leaves were spectacular. I thoroughly enjoyed traveling around in my little corner of the world and capturing them on my camera. I knew I must hurry and record them, for soon they would turn loose and flutter to the ground. I read that "a falling leaf is nothing more than a summer's wave goodbye"..... but I think it is also a promise....... to return fresh and new in the spring.
Yes, a little rest, a little quiet, a little cold and then the world will once again burst with springtime. So I think I will choose to embrace the beauty of fall and enjoy a slower pace for a while. jt



Welcome to my blog. I plan on sharing things I see and capture thru my camera.

About Me

My photo
I am 49 years old, I have 2 adult sons, a grandaughter & a grandson. I am happily married to the love of my life. I have been intrigued with photography for as long as I can remember. I am constantly striving to learn something new and improve my photography. I love doing portraits, macros, and scenic shots. I literally take my camera everywhere I go. I find that the more I learn about photographing my world, the more I learn to "see" the beauty around me.
