There is something about the park bench that eerily whispers to me, "Hey you, come on over...have a seat." This one was no exception. I think it has always been like that for me. Park benches invite you to pause, if only for a moment. Contemplate. Meditate. Communicate - after all they also welcome you to share the moment with another. The sun is quickly setting here. For this bench, the offer of comfort will need to wait for another day.

Just think of it, in less than 45 days, we will be in peak fall colors. The change of the season has already begun. It is one of my favorite times of the year as nature delivers intense and ever-changing color and is one of the reasons I love New England. At the same time, it brings with it the season of the long grey shroud. Such are the peaks and valleys of life. These are but a few examples of showoffs early to the show.

Were it not for the nut and bolt, I would surely think this was a chocolate donut good enough to eat. This is the kind of hardware they used a century ago to build railroad bridges. Very impressive indeed. Equally impressive is the fact that the iPhone took this photograph resolution of 3185 x 2511 pixels, a full 240 dpi sufficient for a considerable print and at full view has incredible detail.

What was once a roaring stream in spring is now a moss covered slope of flagstone. Beautiful yet just another sign that summer is gone and fall is coming. The flying bugs are having a field day and the mosquito's are teaming up in full attack mode. It makes looking at the picture all the more pleasurable. Rain is due tomorrow allowing the lovely stream to maintain its slippery green shroud.

I have not always believed in quantum mysticism, but I have no other explanation for why I rose at at 4 am this morning with the urge to go shoot photographs. Something spoke to me and the pictures I took of the moon, the suns first peek above the morning mist and this series of God rays over the misty field were all quite special. I had some difficulty selecting just one. I think I am lucky that I get to look at all of them!
