Chandler Day 331: An Odd Thanksgiving

DSC06535Today was kind of a weird day. It was Thanksgiving and my dad’s birthday. It was also the first year that I have celebrated it with my girlfriend and her family, which was very nice. It was also the same year that mom did not cook a proper Thanksgiving dinner, because she had just moved. I actually was unable to have dinner with her. We had dessert instead. It was unusual and the traditions weren’t kept and things felt out of place. But things change and we must change with them.

Chandler Day 282: Center of Attention

DSC05640Like I said, there are some amazing things around us. On my way to class I noticed this blazing orange and red tree down an alley of still green trees. I almost walked right past it, but the tree made itself the center of attention. I had to stop and stand in the middle of the road to snap this photo.

Chandler Day 281: Those Incredible Colors

DSC05731The trees are beginning to change colors and Fall is upon us here in Central Indiana. This is my favorite season and it can be spectacular for shooting. It is amazing to look up and see the incredible colors. It is nature’s last hurrah before winter comes on and things go dormant. So take a minute to look up or around you. There are some amazing things around us.

Chandler Day 181: Wild Flowers Are Prettiest

DSC03939I happened upon this lone silo today and stopped to get a shot. And then I noticed the all the beautiful daylilies growing along the side of the fence. There were so many you couldn’t even see the fence. I absolutely love these flowers. They grow and bloom all over country roads throughout Indiana. And they are always orange (which happens to be my favorite color.) They are pretty¬†enough to have their own picture but paired with a silo, I think it makes for a beautiful scene.

Chandler Day 168: Accidents Can Be Good Things

DSC03787-2A single, lone post. Old, worn, wrapped in rusted barbed wire. A remnant of a fence long decayed and lost. And growing up all around it, new, orange, wild day lilies. It was a pretty scene. It demanded my attention. Happened upon by complete accident. A little beauty to brighten up the day.

Brandy Day102: Laughing! :-)

This means more to me than I could explain, the existence of this particular bottle cap made me chuckle first thing this am. It took me to a happy moment and thought.
That’s when you know something is real…when it makes you happy without being present. When you laugh at a memory.
I dont know why this particular cap was left behind, on the beer cooler, in the bar that I was opening, but I am very grateful for it!
