I took this yesterday evening, as my husband, Walter, and I took a spur-of-the-moment walk at our local park. Originally, I wanted to just get some fall photos of one the trees in the park that was very colorful while we were out. I took the shots of the tree, and as we were heading back to our car, this sunset happened. A very nice day's end. :-)

Welcome to the House of Fungus & Lichen! :-D
My husband and I happened upon this fungus/lichen covered stump last month. It was host to many different fungi and lichens, but the dominate one, which caught our eye, is called the Turkey Tail Mushroom, Trametes versicolor. For being one the most common mushrooms here in the the U.S., this was my first time seeing it! 
You can read more about it at this link:

If I've plussed several of your photos/posts in the last several weeks it's because I'm checking my Circles to see who's still actively posting here, and culling out the inactive folks, which I've found many sadly. 
Anyway, I don't mean to irritate you, I just like what I see! :-D

~ Autumn Morning Glow ~

Happy Thursday, my friends!
Took this photo while out on a early morning walk with my husband, Walter, last Saturday. It was very cool and windy, but I sure did enjoy the sunshine. Really hope the nice weather continues!
May you all have beautiful day!

Just an amateur, photographing the beauty around me :-)
I'm attempting to learn photography...

My friends, I do not just want to share images or random pictures with you. I desire to convey through my photography not only an image as seen with my physical eyes, but a special moment as seen and experienced by my heart and soul, which I try to re-create via post-processing, my paint brush. I desire to share photography with you that is alive with meaning. With an image I wish to move and inspire you in some small way by something which has moved me. Whether that moment is joy or sorrow, funny or sacred, beauty or mundane, I am, in essence, entrusting, and exposing, to you a vulnerable part of myself. I believe this is an essential and powerful part of any creative artform. You may interpret it differently than I, and that is fine because it adds another layer of beauty and meaning. All I ask in return is for you to handle with care and respect all I have entrusted to you, just as I do for you. 
Thank you and God bless! ♥ ♥ ♥

How I began...
I began by only taking pictures with my Android smartphones a few years ago. I do possess an old 35mm Pentax 70R-Zoom camera, which I greatly enjoyed using for many years, but haven't used it in quite a while. If you like, you can view my G+ album with a few of those Pentax photos I've shared here. Also, feel free to view my larger mobile photography albums as well. 
I just recently bought my first DSLR camera, a Nikon D3300, which I'm learning to use. This is a huge step up for me from mobile photography! There's so much to learn, it's proving to be a real challenge for me, but I'm determined to conquer it! For those of you more experienced than me, feel free to give me suggestions and advice! :-)

I've always loved photography, but for many years I put the desire on the shelf for various reasons. When I first joined Google+, photography was not foremost in my mind. In fact, I avoided anything to do with photography in the beginning! So, what inspired me to tackle photography again?? 

One day, I saw a post by Mike Shaw. In the post he talks about the passing of a co-worker who was only a few years older than himself. The photo and his thoughts touched me deeply because our family had recently lost a dear friend and two family members very close together. As I looked at his photo, how it captured the message he was sending, how I completely agreed and embraced it, and something inside me clicked to life. 

His words, "...treat each day as if it is your last, go out and live and breathe, stop putting off the adventure's you want to take because one day you will put it off one day too many" made me say, " Yeah, I wanna do THAT." 'THAT' being doing what I love before it's too late. Creating something to inspire, encourage, and challenge others in some way via a photo and a thought.  

That moment served to clarify my direction, but I wouldn't post any of my own photos until many months later, after stumbling all over the place on G+. I shared others photos for a time, until I learned this was frowned upon by the majority here. Sharing others work, (with credit given, of course), was not satisfying my creative desire anyway. I wanted to share MY work. After getting my first Android phone, (HTC Inspire), I finally took my love for photography off the shelf and jumped in with both feet. Now I use my Samsung Galaxy S5 as well as my Nikon.  

Not only do I enjoy taking photos, I love the beautifully diverse photography I find here on G+...what an abundance of fantastic photographers here in Googleland. I'm amazed and inspired on a daily basis by the stunning work of amateurs and professionals alike. I've given tons of +1's over the years, but if I add a comment as well, then you have seriously awed me with your work! :-)) 

I'm not new to the Google+ community. I joined shortly after Google+ was no longer by invitation only. So far, I'm finding G+ very refreshing. I learn something new here almost everyday. I've met a wide variety of people here who have been very helpful. With a few exceptions, all have been very willing to share their knowledge and been very accepting. I find the positive atmosphere simply inspiring and I hope to pass that inspiration along in my posts as well!

In real life, I'm a shy, private person. I don't carry on conversations very well, (I think), which is why I plus a post more often than commenting on one. But, I've found being on Google Plus has helped me bloom a little in this area by taking me out of my comfort zone of just reading and being an observer only. While making a lot of comments is not my style, jumping into comment threads is not so intimidating now. 

I've been married to my wonderful husband, Walter, for almost 26 years and we have one very talented son, Daniel, who plays guitar like his Dad. I love hearing them play! (Sadly, our sweet cat, Prissy, who was eighteen years old, pasted away Jan. 28, 2015.)

On January 1, 2012 our family was hit by a medical tsunami when my hubby, Walter, collapsed. After an ambulance ride to the hospital, waiting hours in the ER, answering tons of questions concerning medical history, all the while a multitude of blood and medical tests were performed, the doctor gave us the shocking news: Walter was in acute renal or kidney failure. We were speechless and almost hopeless as he was in the hospital for the next four weeks. He was started on dialysis three days a week and his diet changed drastically, the doctors & us hoping against all odds some kidney function could be preserved. In June 2012, he was officially put on the Kidney Transplant List. They've called twice with available deceased donor kidneys, which he turned down because of various medical reasons. Sadly, several friends & family members who wanted to donate one of their kidneys, were deemed unacceptable. So, as of today, we are still waiting for a kidney. The good news is that Walter no longer needs dialysis. The doctors view this as a small miracle, but say he's on the razor's edge still. He's fine now, but that could change in the blink of an eye if he doesn't monitor his diet closely, take his meds and get his blood checked regularly by his kidney doctor. So far, so good, thank God! Hopefully, the call that a kidney is available will come soon! Until then, it's one day at a time, one day at a time.    

Just so you know, I'm conservative by nature and my Christian faith is very important to me and our family. But fear not, I will not flood your stream with posts concerning my faith or political views. So, don't be shy about adding me.

Favorite quotes: "God will never violate His Word, but He will violate our understanding of His Word."  ~ Bill Johnson, Pastor of Bethel Church, Redding, CA.

"All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

My stream and posts are always G-rated. Why? Because I believe in Philippians 4:8 ~ "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." 

I occasionally write poetry or my thoughts, if the mood strikes. Also, if something has been helpful, useful. or touched my heart, I'll pass it along. When I post photos, I did not take myself, I'll always post the name of the author or photographer. If the author is unknown, I will always post a source link. My own mobile or NIkon photos will most always have the following hashtags: amateurphotography, mobilephotography, mobilography, Androidography, galaxyS5, NikonPhotography, nikonD3300, nikonusers or southcarolinaphotography.

If you are still reading, (hopefully), I have a simple Circling Protocol I follow. To be added to my circles, your stream must pass this protocol. Also, I don't always circle back. Even if I like your posts, I won't immediately circle you back. I'll wait a little while, then add you to my Test Circle.   

You will NOT be circled if your profile/posts contains any of the following: 
  • Extreme profanity 
  • Pornography (I will report it and block)
  • Hate speech or racism of any kind
  • Demeaning or belittling commentary of my or any persons: beliefs/faith (no matter what they are), political persuasion, or sexual preference/lifestyle
  • Rude, crude or overly suggestive/offensive posts/jokes
  • Nudity
  • Numerous Gif posts
  • You post too frequently (i.e. dozens of posts per day)
  • You only post videos or links to blogs
  • No profile info, No profile photo
  • No recent posts, no public posts, or you post only to Communities.
  • Trying to sale me a product or service
  • Constant re-sharing of others posts, but no original content of your own.
  • Your stream resembles Facebook. (food posts, photo quotes, videos, political posts)
  • Overly negative posts or boring content.
  • Also, If I have circled you as a result of a shared circle and I find any of the above on your profile or in my G+ stream, I will uncircle you and possibly block you.
I look forward to meeting you! If you have a question, please ask. If I can answer it, I will do so. Thanks so very much for taking the time to read this! God bless! :-))

Went here for a late dinner with family. Was busy, but was able to order quickly. I was with my Dad, who needs a cane to help him walk and keep his balance, and while they were getting our order together, the cashier had us go ahead be seated at a table and they brought our food to us. I really appreciate little acts of kindness like that. Definitely will be a returning patron. Food was great too.

Went on a Sunday, and it was packed! Had to wait to be seated, but surprisingly not a long wait even though the restaurant was full. I was impressed as the wait staff & those cleaning up tables were really hustling to accommodate their customers. Didn't take long for our waitress to take our orders and bring our food. I'd definitely eat here again.
