No snow yet, just a little frost

School Volleyball

Marc had a volleyball tournament from school

9 kids in the field

The kids that could serve the ball over the net
made the team

We're having a bit of fog in the morning but not enough to have a fog day. Marc is a bit sad about that.

Feeding of the 260

3 lines scooping Turkey, Potatoes, Stuffing, Veggies and a Bun

The servers are lining up

Ready, Set, Go!

On the far side the servers pick up the plates and
bring them out to the tables

If feeding 260 is this much work makes you wonder about
the feeding of the 5000
The menu was more simple but
there were only 12 servers and hills to climb

Apple Harvest

This is the total harvest of our 3 trees

We're doing something wrong.

Remembrance Day

May 2007 we met veterans on our plane home

Some proud and with lots of medals.

Charley made the biggest impact.
He said to Marc :"never become a soldier boy"
He was still hurting bad.

Gravel Pit

I made some pictures in the gravel pit across the road with my small camera

RAW image

We are learning to work with RAW images.
I think this actually makes photography easier.
You can still adjust your pictures after you take them

More detail in the sky and colour in the leaves

We made a picture of Annette with the help of a reflector

and just for comparison we did one "all wrong"

Doesn't milkweed look pretty this way?
