Things I Do

woman walkingFor this week's My Town Shoot Out, Mersad has chosen the topic, "What I do in My Town." That's a broad category so I've narrowed it down to some things I do frequently. 

First, the mundane. I help keep the household running and contribute to yard maintenance. I happen to be retired but there's a lot to do. Here I am crossing the yard in an image taken by our wildlife camera.

Secondly, I like exploring parks and historic sites and make an effort to do so regularly. Frank took the picture of me at Shenandoah River State Park. It reminds me of my mom, who was always looking at a map in order to explore some place new.

I also spend a significant amount of time at the computer, blogging, checking Facebook, shopping, and so on. And of course I process my photos, of which I take many.  In the picture above, I've got Adobe Bridge open. Flash is supervising.

The sunset image is one I photographed yesterday. It qualifies for Skywatch Friday, Weekend Reflections,  and Orange You Glad It's Friday.  I keep a camera handy pretty much all the time.

We have company coming this weekend so it will be busy. Have a good weekend and do something fun!


  1. is that your dog watching what you are doing? Have a lovely weekend.

    1. Yes, that's Flash. He keeps an eye on me.

  2. That's a lovely sunset shot.

  4. Wow, I love the sunset shot. Beautiful. Have a happy weekend!

  5. Very nice sunset and reflection!

  6. a gorgeous sunset image. Flash keeps a protective eye on you.

  7. The sunset is so beautiful!

  8. What a great catch!! depending on how you first look at the image, the trees and their reflection appeared to be like a garland across the middle of the sky [almost as if you shot out an airplane window]. I know otherwise, but it is so uncanny. Kudos!!

  9. Hello Linda - my first visit to your blog ... and many thanks for your visit to the low carb diabetic blog.

    I love your sunset photo the colours and reflections in that image are so lovely.

    I hope your weekend is going well. I will come back and visit soon.

    All the best Jan
