Honoring My Lady

Over the last several weeks The Bride has walked with me on a new journey. Due to the uncertainty, and the hazards, of my last job I took another job with less stress but more steps. Literally. I walk a lot! As my first day approached my Pops had a heart incident and spent the last several days in the hospital.Through it all The Bride was positive and calm.

Today I took a breath of a moment just for me and set out to get a few captures. As I walked about our place I took a picture that I think she would like and is a way of honoring my Lady.

As The Day Fades

The sun was rapidly sliding down the day into the approaching dusk as I was mowing the yard. The next few days will be rainy so I just had to stop  to get a few shots in. Here are three from around our place this evening. Enjoy!

These Thistles, along our fence line, are patiently waiting to deploy the last of its thistledown. They will not have to wait long as Autumn is steadily pushing its way into the area.
The Fleabane are all but gone from our place. The only thing that remains are the stalks and the thrones upon which they had once set.
A solitary Grasshopper was a surprise third element of this photo. I was trying to get the contrast between the rust of the fence post and the dead heads of the summers past Golden Rod. As I was focusing a little head pops over the top of the post. I just had to come around and take this shot.

I took all the above photos with my Minolta DiMage S414.
