At the End

Floral, Macro, Midday

For late September, the past few days have been fantastic. Temperatures in the mid to upper 70’s with plenty of sun. I decided to work half a day on Friday and went for another midday walk along the trails in Griffiss International Sculpture Garden. My thought, besides getting some exercise, was to capture both late season flowers and early autumn colors. It is definitely early for the full autumn colors but it was the right time for the flowers. As much as I like capturing flowers in full bloom, I am fascinated by the look of flowers past their prime. This black-eyed susan was defiant against the call of autumn.

I ended up taking another Friday off from work. No great plans other than getting the brakes on the car replaced. By the early afternoon I decided it was time for a walk. I drove over to the parking area for the Mohawk River Trail off Chestnut street in the Griffiss Technology Park. The walk generally takes me longer since I’m constantly stopping to capture an image of interesting things along the path. Definitely a relaxing afternoon.

Midday, Floral, Work

After eating the last minute sub for lunch because there was no food truck yesterday I felt I should at least get a little walking into my day. Tough for me not to bring the camera as I walk around the building. There were plenty of opportunities and I was gathering a bunch of macro images when I spied this group in the middle of the parking lot. Talk about overcoming the odds…
