And I Am Ready To Take Some Photos…


Hope everyone had a wonderful long Thanksgiving weekend with family and friends.   For the hunt this week my husband and I made our way to the Macys Parade.  However you probably won’t be able to tell until the last photo…


When I first saw this prompt I said to myself this is perfect…I will take a photo of the crowd waiting for the parade to start…but we were late to the parade…oh well.  I took this one while “waiting” for my husband to get back from the restroom….I hope that counts as “waiting”…


Most of the foliage has already fallen in the park….but I stumbled upon this collection of fallen leaves as we made our way into the park.

I am entering this one into the “Shades of Autumn” finale…the fallen leaves signify the end of Autumn…and interestingly this photo has one of every color from the set of challenges…Thanks Kristi, Rebecca and Alicia for such a fun challenge….I can’t wait for your next one.
Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge


We stumbled upon this cute little guy on our way to the parade…love his holiday spirit.


We enjoyed a beautiful breakfast before the parade….


And yes about 60 photos or so later we finally made it to the parade…if you happened to be watching the parade on TV you will note that yes this is the final major balloon of the parade….but hey isn’t life about the journey and not simply the destination.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone…
