Cooling


The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August,
and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself like the first grey hair amidst the locks
of a beauty who has seen one too many season.
~Oliver Wendell Holmes

It's still consistently in the 90's here
but we've had a couple of days that have dipped lower
and you can almost smell autumn in the breeze.

I'm so ready for the relief of an autumn day.

You make a simple object look so amazing - great shot! Yes, we can feel autumn starting to sneak up on us, especially with the coolness now at night.

Our prayers are with you and Shauna and your families.

I love this photo Chasity, you did an amazing job shooting it! The b&w makes it look like a vintage photo. I wish you well this week, may God be with and bless both you and your sister.

Wonderful picture, I can hear that annoying ticking noise as the fan, out of balance taps against the wire cage.

Black and White? It looks like it may have a blue filter to it. Take care, thoughts to your sister. AJ

The weather is quickly changing here also, and I don't mind the change in temperature, but could surely do without the rain :-(
Great shot!!
