I’ve been working on improving my photography skills, so when I saw this week’s photo challenge, I thought it would be a perfect time to share these updates. Your replys are appreciated. Also, these photos are available for purchase here.
Both pictures were taken at Okefenokee Swamp, in Georgia.
Taken around midnight using a flashlight to highlight the remains of a tree after the 20011 swamp fire.
Erie reflection makes swamp feel more mysterious.
Where does the time go? It seems just a few days ago I was posting every day; now I’m lucky if I post once a month. I have to get better at managing my time.
I’ve been posting a few book reviews in the past couple weeks. You can read my review of the Ted Kluck biography of Robert Griffin III (RG3) at A Beach, a Book, and a Breeze. I’ve also posted a review of Nora Roberts’ Carolina Moon, at Helium.com.
The next leg of the Dirty Spokes Trail Runs is coming up in two weeks at Unicoi State Park in Helen, GA. I’m planning on a better showing this time. I’ll post the results after the race. I’ll also have a post about the park over at Georgia Adventures with Pauliana.
This week’s photo challenge is about focus. The kind where you aim your attention to one focal length or the other. Details are important. I’ve selected two of my favorite pictures for this week’s challenge. The first is of leaves at Rose Hill Cemetery in Macon, Georgia. I love the way the light behind the leaves is dappled. It reminds me of lying under a shade tree in the yard as a child. The second is of water rushing over the edge of the falls at Little River Canyon in Fort Payne, Alabama.
Have a fabulous week.

Oregon called; they want their weather back…
What happened to the sunny summer days I’m use to? At least the pool has been covered in algae. I’d hate to have a clean pool and too much rain to enjoy it.
Never thought I’d be glad to have algae in the pool.
Photo of antique bicycle, by Diana Busby
Saw this bicycle during a self-guided tour of Perry, Georgia. Notice the scroll work on the spokes and frame. I could imagine the little girl or young woman riding this bike into town, just a few blocks up the street, to get milk or bread, or maybe to see a movie on a Saturday afternoon. Also, notice the size of the tree? That tree must be a hundred years old or more. You don’t see trees that large around here very often.
