Out in the woods next my office today I came across this deer skull (and other bones).

Coming to work this morning there was a rainbow. With the camera sitting on the steering wheel and without actually looking through the viewfinder, I managed to get a pretty good picture.

Dorothy and I had a great visit with the Tommy, Lauren, and Jack this evening. There may have been a little cuteness involved. We’re going to miss this family when they move.

Sitting In The Road

Yep, that’s Dorothy, sitting in the road. Cathy, her responsible mother is just standing there looking at her. Meanwhile her father is taking a picture. I’d say that pretty much sums up our family.

I’ve sort of tried not to repeat subject matter this year, with the obvious exception of Cathy and Dorothy. Still, how can I not post another picture of this most adorable of little boys. Jack, we love you. Lauren and Tommy, thanks for letting him brighten our days (and we love you, too).

Kaileb and Jenny

On the theme of cute kids, here’s another one. Well, two, actually. This is Jennifer and her nephew Kaileb, who refused to smile for me but is cute anyway.

Fall Color

It was a busy day at work today (it’s going to be that way for a while) so I didn’t get a chance to go out and take pictures. I took this picture of fall color on the way home, though. There is still a lot of green out there but it’s getting really pretty.

Cathy and I took a nice walk at lunchtime today. I carried my camera and took a few pictures of various things—claret colored sumac leaves, porcelain berry, and some crab apples.

I got a few nice pictures of Jack this evening (look for an update to The Many Faces of Jack). This one is nice because it has some cool extra people in it.

Working on Homework

Working on Homework

A couple weeks ago I had a picture of Dorothy “Doing Her Homework.” This time she actually is doing her homework. It was about 9:30 and I realized I hadn’t taken any pictures today so she smiled for me (or something). And now we’ve reached the 3 in 365.

BWI Airport

Well, Dot and Donna returned from three and a half weeks in southern Africa this evening. What a wonderful trip they had. I had to satisfy myself with pictures of blurred people at BWI Airport.

We had an early snow fall today. We didn’t actually get a lot on the ground, although as near as Damascus there was noticeably more. In New Jersey George got a fair amount and further north it was as much as 30 inches. Still, snow in October is reasonably rare here and it was fun to come across this snow man, even if it is only about two feet tall. I think they must have collected snow off their cars, where it accumulated a bit more.

Dorothy said I should mention that I edited out a political sign for a candidate for the upcoming Rockville mayoral election. It didn’t really add anything to the picture. I didn’t bother to take out the wire supports for the sign and you can see them in the lower left.

Our First Frost

Our First Frost

After the snow yesterday, the sky cleared overnight and it got pretty cold. There was a nice frost this morning with the edges of the fallen leaves turned white with a thin border of ice. Lovely.

Neighborhood Kids Go Bananas!

Yes, banana suits seem to be in this year. These four neighborhood kids are in my mother-in-law’s neighborhood, actually, not ours.
