The new camera continues to work well on the old flash disk. And I did manage to find some brilliant fall colors to record. The first couple are from the same photo trip my friend and I took the week before.
As I have mentioned before the 365 day challenge for me is not so much taking the picture as processing the photos I do take. In the film days I was always leaving an unfinished roll in my camera. Or worse yet, undeveloped rolls in my camera bag. The digital age has been a help with that. But there are still times when I will go back through my uploads (or is it downloads) and realize I never did anything with that one day's photos. Or pick up the camera, check for battery level, and photos left on disk and discover I had not downloaded (or is it uploaded) several.
And the challenge has shown me I rather like the days when without a new photo to post I chum back through past files and find one whose glory I have not fully developed. Day 297 was water and mud with shadows and reflections. And I got to turn it into an abstract. I think it was raining outside and I wanted to so remember the sunshine.
Day 298, 299 and 300 were taken at a green house I watch over, and which presents me with endless subjects to photograph. Confession: I am not a flower photographer nor flower painter. But I can be seduced into being a digital artist with flowers.
But I love the greenhouse most for the endless possibilities of reflections on and through the glass. Day 300 is my favorite photo of the week. It is not a double exposure or a layered composition in the dry darkroom. It is reflections in glass while taking a photo through glass from the outside in. And the windows opposite had more reflections to add.

I took a lot of photographs this week. And I posted photo blogs on Sidetracked Charley and albums on Facebook with many of them, so I found myself running short on picks of the day. In fact, I currently have no photos for the current week. But I do think I have photos on the camera I have not up or down loaded.
