A steady rain falls this day and as the light shifts and the wind blows, beautiful patterns are created upon the kitchen windows.  In the foreground are the raindrops and in the distance are the branches of the towering oak tree, its leaves now dark russet and falling to the ground.

I have to admit I was much more enchanted by the first few winter storms.  Now as we batten down the hatches for roughly 10 inches of snow tonight, I’m really, really, really looking forward to spring.  I may feel differently in the morning when the sun’s rays strike all the white surfaces.  We’ll see … 😉

As soon as we returned home from the beach, the rains began but the sun was still shining so bright.  It made each drop sparkle like the proverbial diamond.  With no expectation of outcomes, it was fun to lean out the window and photograph the falling water.

Here in New England we’re awaiting the arrival of what’s being called an epic snowstorm.  A might coating of white will cover the land soon enough.  Maybe that’s why I’m drawn to the warm oranges and reds of the moro or blood orange.  Given the amount of digging I’ll be doing over the next few days, I’ll need all the Vitamin C I can get.  Wherever you are in the world, be well. 😉

the canoe behind the house, perched against an old tree everyone feared would fall. the tree remained standing but its few remaining leaves fell in the wind.

Meanwhile as I work from home today because of Sandy, it is fascinating and inspiring and a wee bit fear-inducing to watch the rising winds dance with the oak tree that towers above the house.  The leaves fall to earth in a beautiful golden brown spiral.

Somehow it seems more right (excuse the bad grammar) to try to capture what I see with other tools besides my camera.  I may feel differently over the course of the day as the light changes with the approaching storm, and the action outside my window is such that I want to capture as much as fast as I can with pixels instead of calming watercolors.

We shall see what the evening holds.  Meanwhile have a good, safe day, folks. 😉

At least that’s what I saw as the sky darkened before a storm.

I am constantly reminded that there is a time and place for everything.  For several years now, I have noticed and had access to the glass cylinder sitting on top of my science guy’s bookcase.  But for the first time, today I photographed it.  You see, he bumped the bookcase this morning, knocking the cylinder to the floor.  It was a close call but luckily it hit the carpeted part.

A Galileo thermometer.  Read more here.  A gift from family.  He tried to replace it on top of the shelf, but the morning sunlight hit it and that was that.  I gently took it from his hand.  At his quizzical look, I said, “I’ll be careful.  Promise.”

And so far, I have been.  😉
