Fall Fun

Saturday Self-Challenge: Herbst (Autumn) Since I live in Florida, it was a bit of a challenge to find obvious signs of autumn. However, signs of autumn appear in stores that sell decorations for Halloween and Thanksgiving. I found this humorous stack of pumpkins in a store selling autumn holiday decorations. Have a wonderful fall weekend, everyone!

Saturday Self-Challenge: Rain We have been having rain all week, so it was just a matter of how to compose an image of it. I thought the rain drops looked so pretty on my car, so that is what I chose as my subject. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Unforgettable?

Saturday Self-Challenge: Remembering September 11, 2001 What happened on September 11, 2001 impacted the world, and it made everyone everywhere feel quite vulnerable in a way we never felt before. But after twenty years, has anything changed to make the world a safer place? The war in Afghanistan needed to end, but the way it was ended by the Biden administration left that country firmly in the hands of terrorists (with billions of dollars worth of sophisticated American weaponry!) who will beget more violence. What a way to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the worst terror attack ever committed.

Desert Rose

Saturday Self-Challenge: Something that makes you feel better One of my favorite things to do to relieve tension is to garden. Being among natural things is rejuvenating to the soul! Since I moved to Florida, I haven't yet been able to garden outside because we are renting a small house with no yard. So I have had to make do with creating a potted garden inside. This plant is my most recent addition to the collection. Once our forever home is built, I will again be able to garden outside to my heart's content! Have a good weekend, everyone!

Saturday Self-Challenge: Anything Glass in B&W I am still learning how to use my new camera (I have a feeling I'll be learning for a long time!), and wanted to try B&W in camera instead of using an editor. After some time spent learning how to use the feature, I managed to get a somewhat decent image. Happy Easter and have a great week ahead!
