I mentioned taking a trip recently, which was to Washington, only not that one, and not that one either, but the one in North Carolina – the first town to be named after George Washington, as they proudly proclaim. Well, not the whole town, or really anyone living there that I heard, but on a plaque in a park, anyway. Washington sits on a river delta

Oh, I can’t decide
While on a quest last week, which I’ll go into later, I got three very similar images faintly representative of autumn, and I’m agonizing over which is the best one to feature. So I’m putting them all up, and encouraging you to pick your favorite and ignore the others.
These are all on Morgan Creek in Chapel Hill, which ran behind the apartment complex that I lived
I’m not quite going to make a post for each day of October with this, though it comes close, plus I still have plenty of photos to unload, but I’ll set a record for the year of uploaded images. Makes up for September being so slow at least. So let’s take a look at the autumn colors captured so far, with the idea that I may still have some more soon.

Looking back on those we post in 2021
Okay, was that a particularly terrible title? I dunno, it had that certain cliché-trashing aspect to it…
Anyway, a look back at posts and photos from last year that I’m fond of, which you should definitely consider fair warning, because you’re not getting any others. There will be a couple more posts of a similar nature coming, one of them the annual tag roundup, so this will have
As we look out the back window and find November once again getting into the trash, we send it on its way with a shout and a well-aimed pine cone. Yes, it’s the end of the month, and time for our abstract. Would you like to hazard a guess as to what it will be?
Never mind, nobody likes guessing games. It’s this:
The original framing was wider than this, but as I saw the
Count on, and with, me
Yesterday I said I was eyeing a record for photos this year, but was running a little behind on what should be a fairly intensive end stretch. That had nothing to do with this. Nothing!
Okay, maybe a little…
I also mentioned needing to go around and chase fall colors, and so I did, kinda. I never left the yard today (well, yesterday now,) but found a decent selection nonetheless.
It is an ex-October
Whoa, damn near missed this one! As it is, it’s posting, like, 21 hours later than normal for the end-of-month abstract – I simply got involved in other things and plumb forgot about it. Not that I had a lot of choices from this month anyway, nor did I go out yesterday in search of any like I’d been considering, and the few frames I shot today don’t really
The days of yore, part five
Admittedly, these photos are not from very long ago at all – slightly over a week, to be forthright – so this isn’t terribly yorey, but that’s the title I’m going with. Mostly, I’m doing a little catchup from the past few weeks of thin posts while I tackled numerous other things, but really, I wasn’t shooting then either, so we have just
There’s something familiar…
So on Monday I started selecting the photos that would appear in today’s On This Date post, and ended up with two distinct possibilities from back in 2014 this was the second. In the context of the others, I knew this was taken around the nearby pond, but I couldn’t place that path anywhere, and most especially not the spiky yucca-maybe plant down there
On this date 46
Like I said last week, lots to play with this week! In your face, Slow Period! Let’s see, now…
We start with 2010’s entry, a sampling of fall colors that didn’t get posted then:
I spend too much time trying to identify things like this right as I upload them for posts, instead of doing it, oh, anytime in the several years that I lived right next to
