Another gorgeous day in Central New Hampshire and the colors just adds to the glory. What a joy it is to be able to walk through this beauty. I stopped myself from taking too many pictures. There is only so many I can share with you. Plus, I did basically the same walk as yesterday, plus I will be doing it again next week. So, I wanted to keep some scenes for future shots. Tomorrow is my day off from walking/running but I will try to take some pictures — maybe even with my Canon EOS RP running Firmware 1.3. Enjoy.

I feel — and also know — that I am privileged. I get to spend hours surrounded by this. Wonderful when I am walking.

But, please remember, I pay the price. This is just compensation for 5-months of cold, snow, ice and winds! So, it is like the last hurrah prior to the misery of winter. SMILE. And this year, after my knee injury in February, I won’t even be able to shovel snow. That really was my only joy in winter. Shoveling snow. It is so satisfying.

I will try and make this a daily event. Sharing the local foliage with you. Not difficult — really. I can just step outside and snap a few pictures. 50% of these were within 100 yards of my front door!

New Hampshire 2019 Fall Foliage Is Way, Way Ahead Of Schedule.

In the last few days the colors have exploded, the brilliant reds, the vivid yellows and the appealing oranges. This is early. Maybe 2-weeks, possibly even 3. We are not in October yet, and these are the colors you would expect in mid-October.

Yes, I am lucky, very lucky. I live in the sticks and I am able to mindlessly amble across the wooded, rural landscape, on dirt roads, for at least 90-minutes a day. So, I get to see, observe and note the colors and the beauty around me. I do not take it for granted. I take time to smell the roses — though the wild roses are nearly all gone.

I would contend that 2019 New Hampshire foliage is in full-swing. I will have to take more pictures, so I can share with you.

Enjoy.

‘SimpliSafe’ ‘Home Sweet Home’ TV Commercial (October 2018) — Another Catchy Ad Like ‘Tortoise & The Hare’.

by Anura Guruge


Click image to access video (with THE music) at iSpot.tv.


Heard this for the first time this morning and as with the (now famous) FedEx ‘Tortoise and the Hare‘ Ad THE MUSIC made me take notice.

So, from what I can see it is a background guitar track to the spoken narrative. But, WHAT guitar work? Paul Simon?

I checked, on YouTube, songs called “Home Sweet Home“. Don’t think the music is from any of them.

Yes, I checked. I cannot, as yet, locate the guitarist. But, this one might be easier than Tortoise and the Hare‘. One of YOU will know.

Just wanted to share and get your input.

Enjoy.

It seemed churlish not to share these pictures. I do enjoy taking pictures of decaying flowers! When growing up a Buddhist, in Ceylon, we were taught to meditate focusing on the decaying of flowers!

Ditto of yesterday to speak. Again I took all these pictures, close to home, while walking the dogs around 5:15pm, this evening. The difference was that I was on my own and when I got to Prospect Mountain Road, I turned the other way. None, other than the reflection in the puddle, are from our yard!

Full Moon At Halfmoon Lake, New Hampshire — October 2017.

Handheld with my Sony a7 II. Went to see if I could get some decent moon reflect shots. I used a high ISO and High Dynamic Range (HDR) on the Sony. [Plus it is a full-frame camera.] These were taken just after midnight — like at 12:02am. Now I could have taken my Nikon P900 … But, this was a first.
