The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

There Will Be Days Like This

I went for a hike yesterday.  Tromped around in the woods for nearly 3 hours.  Came home with a few pictures.  None really pleased me.  So here are some pictures from the vineyards taken last month.

Today is a new day.


  1. I love the sunny appearance of these shots. Can a bit of it use here.


  2. Good to get in the 3-hour hike; good for the soul. Another day for pics! Vineyards are colourful

  3. I see you have your red leaves there, although they are not of a tree.

  4. These leaves are lovely for sure.

    Yep, I have days when none of the photos I've taken make me happy. But then I go through them a couple of days later and my mood changes. ;)

  5. My old art teacher used to reckon that these unproductive times are when you're raising your standards and reassessing your technique. Silly old fool!

  6. I'da just posted the pics I didn't like anyway...

  7. Well at least you got out and tried. That's better then I've been doing lately. Keep up the good work.

  8. Love the color in these...that first shot especially.

  9. Hi John... Love the colors just lovely!!
    I find it had to take shot's like your last from a distance they just all muddle in together !!
    It seems it has to be real far or real close to have that splash!!
    So what am I rambling about?


  10. You may not be happy with them, but «Louis» thinks you did a great job of capturing the fall colors on the grape leaves!
