Early Morning Light

My D90's shutter died some time ago, after opening and closing over 100,000 times.
Not too bad, it was supposed to make it to 100,000, so , "Thank You, Nikon."
Sent it off to be repaired, got it back after several weeks and it died half way through the first assignment I shot with it.  So it went back to Nikon.

Got it back this week and the above image is one of the first I shot with it. This morning in a pecan grove of Highway 49 north of Fort Valley.  Saw this as I drove by and had to stop. LOve the light in this image, the beams breaking through the dust, nice compression with the 300mm.

Glad to have my little camera back.

A Halloween Treat

Yesterday was Halloween, and if you didn't buy a little candy and turn on your porch lights, you missed a real treat.  Deborah and I have done Halloween each year we have been in Fort Valley, but for one. We took last year off but were ready for the zombies, vampires, fairy queens and other young visitors to come calling.

Our first was cute little bumble bee. She came accompanied by her older sister around 5:45. Waited about twenty-five minutes for our next callers. The evening started off slow enough that we were a bit worried if anyone would come this year.

But it did get busy. We had almost one hundred kids to come along.  What a joy. Happy, smiling faces even under the zombie makeup. Some alone, some in the company of older siblings or parents. All really polite and enjoying themselves.

Only one other house on our block gave out candy, there were other participating in the neighborhood, but most houses were dark.  This was a great opportunity to get to visit others in the community, to share a few minutes of hospitality with strangers.  To make a child smile.

And that is what it's all about.
