After Thanksgiving Dinner In The Country

.
Keating Street And 11th Road Marysville

We brought Thanksgiving dinner from St. Louis and did final assembly at Carolyn's mother's home. She lives in a new housing development for low income seniors. They are spacious apartments, two to a building, all ground level and accessible. Perfect for Elvira who will be 94 in a few days and can live by herself with some assistance.

So what to do later? No football fans in that place. I got out on the lane through the development a bit after sunset with my camera and tripod. The top picture looks back to the through road and has some wild spectral highlights from the street lamp just out of the picture. That's the entrance to Elvira's unit below, with a clear night, a waxing moon and some wacky color imbalance. Last, looking toward the edge of town from the end of the lane. That's the same water tower we saw a year ago through a longer lens

This morning is the annual not-at-all-serious pheasant hunt out in the farm fields. The running joke is that the Kruse guys all carry shotguns but I bring a Canon.

You were able to 'walk' after the turkey? Good for you. I stayed low and watched the Pats demolish their heated rivals.

I always like that moment in the evening, when the very last hints of dusk are fading in the west.

Great shots!

I like the horizontal lines of the wires, which were exaggerated by catching light in your long exposure, and which echo the horizontal line of the lights of the passing car.

Your eye is marvelous B. Love these as I'm sure Carolyn's family does as well. I'm so glad her mom is still able to have you all around her for these special days.
