Road Trip with Piper

"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes."~  Marcel Proust
Daddy and I have explored Potawatomi State Park in Sturgeon Bay hundreds of times, but yesterday was Piper's turn!

Piper says, "When you're a good girl, you get ice cream! I like road trips!"

"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird 
I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns." ~ George Eliot

French Friday: La Tour Eiffel Illuminée

le 20 octobre 2017 (293/365)

« Regard, objet, symbole, la Tour Eiffel est tout 
ce qu'on met en elle et ce but est infini. » ~ Roland Barthes 

I'm not a big fan of Halloween lights -- Christmas lights, yes, but not Halloween;
however, I can't resist this orangish glow of the Eiffel Tower against the night sky.

Take a Hike!

“There is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright.” ~ Henry David Thoreau

Days like today challenge me to grab my camera and explore. Like a signature, every photographer has a unique perspective and tends to favor certain settings, subjects, colors, angles...yet, it's fun to push one's limits and experiment with exposure and focus. Although this photo is not my typical style, I'm so intrigued by the light, especially the magical bokeh in the changing leaves.
