The Little Things You Miss When You Aren't Paying Attention

Beautiful day here in Tri-Cities. It was in the 60's at lunch time, clear blue sky and leaves falling as if they are in a race to the ground.  This morning on my trip to work I saw these trees and knew I had to shoot them at lunch time because it's likely they'll be naked  tomorrow.  While I was standing there taking this photo, I noticed a guy with a leaf blower strapped to his back (can you spot him in this photo?)  and I honestly could have pulled out a lawn chair and just watched him swoosh the leaves into a nice, neat pile. The best part is when he gets them in a big pile and purposely points his blower into the pile and the leaves go up in the air as if they are possessed by a spirit. Whoosh!

See what I mean?  I don't know if he saw me taking his photo but it's good practice for me to just observe people and shoot the photo regardless of how awkward it makes me feel. 

I did not want to go back inside into my little cubicle on such a wonderful, fall day.

But ... I did ... go back ... to work.  

On my way back, I shot this theater sign so I could check out what's playing at the movies. I don't see anything on this billboard I want to see.  Do you?  Jacka... in 3D? I don't think so. 
   





This next photo is right out back of the building where I work. Can you believe these colors?
This was taken at 8:15 a.m. today just before I got in the car to go to work. I heard birds making a racket and looked up above me and spotted this guy. 

Okay ... that's 5! It was a smidge easier finding something to shoot today.  Can't wait to see what crosses my path tomorrow.  love, Susan
