Passage of an Afternoon

Yesterday I needed to do some grocery shopping but first I took a few minutes to see what Passage Creek looked like on a bright (albeit windy) day in autumn.

The main item I needed was goat milk because I was completely out. (I don't tolerate cow milk.) Two stores I visited this week were out of it, and Walmart did not answer the phone. I went there and checked but they were out. An associate told me they had been out of it for a while. I exited the store and called Martin's in Stephens City. They had it in stock so I headed there by way of Double Church Road, avoiding the construction zone on Fairfax Pike. 

The afternoon sunlight brightened the trees and the front of the Camp of Faith Church, so I pulled over and took some cell phone pictures. 

Inspired Sunday / Shadow Shot Sunday

The church is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. It is not very old but I was drawn to the light and the sky.

Speaking of the sky, it gets dark early now: shortly after 5 PM. By the time I got home it was dark except for the moon and the clouds that it was shining through. I steadied my phone on the car to get a shot.

  1. Hello,
    Pretty views and captures of the creek, tree and the moon! Have a great day and a happy new week!

  2. Beautiful views. I've never had goat milk.

  3. Seems that more and more items are in short supply these days.

  4. This time of year with the sun so low there are some great photos to be captured. I love the shot you took of the church.

  5. Lovely photos, Linda. When we lived in NY we often drove south on vacations and loved the Shenandoah area.

  6. So pretty! Some people live where it would be a big huge inconvenience to drive out of their way for milk. For you, it is a way to see more amazing scenery! Thanks for sharing it.

  7. If it was not for the spire you could mistake it for a barn

  8. Four lovely photographs ...

    All the best Jan
