01 December ~ 15 December... Coming up to the finish line


01 December 010
 Not being a Mall person, I NEVER shop at the Mall... I wanted to try to capture some environmental shots. To see what goes on inside the Mall ... so before the Christmas rush began in full, because I cannot tolerate all that traffic, once the rush is on... I went to the Magnolia Mall.
I snapped this shot of some firefighters grabbing lunch at Chic Fil A in the Verandah Cafe.

The Art Trail Gallery hosted a small exhibit of young artists from the Pee Dee Boys and Girls Club.
You can see some pictures of their exhibit here...
This young artist is one of the Artists who were on hand at the Gallery Reception for the Exhibit.

During the Summer here in the South, I keep my orchids outside, in the shade and the humidity. Then when the overnight temps drop below 50º I bring them inside for the winter.
Today, while watering, I found this little guy down in the bottom of a drainage pot.
I guess he came in when I moved the orchids inside.

As my sweet pup is getting up in years, and no longer likes to have his picture taken...
I have to use sneaky and creative measures to get snaps of him... I like to take his picture at least once each week .. sometimes more often...
This is a couple of close ups of his facial details.. his eyes and eyelashes...

•• The Eye of the Beholden ••
 Regardless of the edits I use, I just love his beautiful brindle markings.
The top image is his true colour.

A car crash changes Everything....Use extra caution and watch out for the other driver too.

After several nights of below freezing temps,
all the foliage is drooping and preparing for dormancy over the Winter. Sad, sad...
I'm already looking forward to Spring and the Resurrection of New Life.
I was drawn to this melancholy image of the Winter Sun setting through the leaves of this Summer plant, showing the veins of the leaves still clinging to life.

So... as you know, after I crashed my brothers car last week, I'm now without transpo...
It's freezing cold outside so you'll just have to bear with me as I try to find something to shoot! ;)
