361-365 and it's a wrap!

It's bitter sweet. It's the beauty of fall as summers blooms go dormant and nature prepares for the long winter days ahead.

Our cousin (Hi Andie!) works for a non-for-profit organization called Ebenezer Medical Outreach, in West Virginia. She organized a Dancing with the Tri-State Stars. The Tri-States covers West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky. Khalila, Dave & I had the honor of photographing the event. This was a big challenge for us as it was the first event of that type we have photographed. It was definitely a learning experience. The stadium was dark and the dancers were fast. This event was so entertaining and it was huge success.

Over the past year I have taken pictures of lots of mushrooms but these, found in Southern Ohio, are the weirdest and yuckiest looking I've come across yet.

The one I almost missed . . .
I was roaming my yard which has become somewhat of a jungle out there and I noticed this rose in what used to be my Rose Garden. It might be the only healthy bloom I've had all year long. I couldn't help but bring her in and enjoy what's left of her.
I used a grunge and textures. I like the effect.

and what a way to end the 365 day project . . . My pictures were featured in
"The Herald-Dispatch" of Huntington, West Virginia on Sunday, November 8, 2009.
4 pictures were featured.
