A ruby by any other name...

There we were, shopping with my mom in the Lincolnwood Town Center. Dave wandered off, and when he came back, he said he had found something for my blog. I wasn't sure if it was a funny sign (for my other, funnier blog) or something lovely, for this one. Turns out, both my guesses were wrong - and yet, he was totally right. How could I possibly resist this?

As you may have guessed by now, I'm posting this for Mary's Ruby Tuesday meme. To participate, just post a photo with some red in it, and link to her blog, Work of the Poet. Then go there yourself to sign up, and of course to see what other interesting reddish photography has been posted!
Happy Tuesday, everyone!

I'm back! Just in time for Skywatch

Well, we've returned from our vacation, and mostly recovered from jet lag. We had a wonderful time visiting with our family and friends. And yet, it's also wonderful to be home!

I will soon start posting all sorts of cool photography from our trip - but first - I happened to look up this afternoon as I was leaving work, and look what I found!

Lovely, right? I was quite pleased to have come across it. And on a Thursday afternoon - it was just the sign that I needed to get me back in the blogging mood :)

For more sky-oriented photography from all over the world, go right now and check out Skywatch Friday, that ever-popular meme. Have a great weekend, everyone! And happy Skywatching!

Ah, Autumn

Well, you may not all know this, but even as I type, Dave and I are on a fun-filled vacation in the States! We've been in Boston since Thursday afternoon, and are headed out to Chicago tomorrow night, where we'll be through Sunday. If you're in either of those locations, we would love to see you!

Anyway, needless to say, I haven't been doing much blogging recently. Who has time? But I didn't want to leave you all waiting around... plus, we're here in beautiful New England, where Autumn foliage is all around us. I've been trying to get a bunch of photos, especially since my Israeli kids have never seen Autumn foliage :)

Anyway, here's just one of the many gorgeous views that we've been exposed to over the past few days:

It's true, Autumn hasn't entirely settled in, and I'm sure in a month or so this will be even more majestic. But I think it's gorgeous, and I just couldn't resist posting it! Feel free to click on the photo, to get an even closer view.

And I do believe that the little it of red on the left qualifies this for that always-fun meme, Ruby Tuesday! Go check out lots of red photography there, where it's graciously hosted by Mary. Happy Tuesday, Ruby fans!

And take care, everyone! I hope to be back to posting regularly soon!
