Wandering Away from Work (Two)

As one who brings his lunch to work, I rarely get out of the office until quitting time. When the weather’s right, however, I can be found wandering away from work. I have made a few discoveries along the way.

Fence and YellowThis area is a challenge for finding fall colors. Most trees featuring colorful leaves are very young ornamentals — a bit of a letdown considering the beautiful forests aflame with red, orange, and yellow back in our Arkansas home. Doing my best with the noon light, I captured a tree with yellow leaves beside a white fence.

Look UpA few days later, I noticed a path running through a narrow strip of woods near a stream. I made my way there by way of a bank parking lot. Although I didn’t come away with much, I enjoyed the 75-degree weather.

Rewarding photos or not, I escaped the four walls of the office just long enough to stretch my legs and focus on things more distant than 18 inches.

  1. Nice pictures…. I wonder if you could get a close-up of that fence rail with it’s intricate swirls… looks interesting!

  2. I already have plans to get out of the office at lunch today. No photo plans, though. Just have to gas up my truck and deposit a cheque in the bank.

    I tell ya, the excitement around here never ends. Mostly because it’s so hard to get it started in the first place.

    It’s good to get out of the office, and out of yourself. Around here the trees mostly turn yellow, too. To a native it can be very beautiful. =)
