A Beautiful Day!!

It was an absolutely gorgeous day here in upstate NY. It was in the mid 60's which is highly unusual for this time of year. I took Sherman for a walk and took my camera along. I took a lot of pictures. Mostly of houses that I thought were pretty. I will show a few to you in the next few days. It was just so wonderful to feel the warmth . I wore a spring jacket and actually felt too warm wearing it. Just two days ago I took a walk and needed to cut my walk short because the wind was just miserable and I was freezing....and now this! And guess what. It is supposed to get all cold and miserable again tomorrow.

I admit that I don't have the same artistic eye as my sister when it comes to using the camera, but I thought these pictures were nice. I've always admired this old wrought iron fence. There is english ivy growing all along it. This of course is a winter picture, so it has all the dried up leaves too. I like it though. The tree in the first picture looks so sunny...giving you an overall feel for the day. You can still see the snow....which was melting quickly. On some parts of my walk, you could hear water running into the streets and in the sewer systems because it was melting so fast.

I like the fence too. the tree is a great silvery contrast to the blue sky. We don't have pretty skies here, they are so pale.

I love the fence! I'm looking forward to another drive out to your place and maybe a camera walk about town. (I'll leave the kids home.)

You do have an eye for photographic objects, don't be so hard on yourself!!
