(Not quite) soon enough it will all be over. Although the election is troubling - it turns out that the company which makes the voting machines in the make or break state of Ohio is owned by a company with heavy investment by Romney's son Tagg (the one who wanted to "take a swing" at Obama). Who names their kid Tagg? Well, today I suppose that is a conservative name.
With the day off, I started digging to find those photos of Newfane in autumn that I promised to scan. The first box I picked up had its bottom give way just shy of where I was going to put it. Most of the photos in it were ones that I was looking for last Spring. I didn't find the Newfane shots, but I did find a few others that I took some years back. So here, from two different scanners, two 35mm cameras and one low price digital camera, are a few pics of autumn in New England. (note- Blogger is acting up and not putting the photos where I want them. With any luck, I can still make this make a little bit of sense....)

|The next Gentlemen's Farm down the road....|
|Another farm in Rhode Island - okay not especially autumnal,|
but I liked these Scottish Highland wooly cows - this guy came over to check me out.
When I had a car, I used to go visit an old friend - meaning a friend who has known me for a very long time (although he is now getting along in years just like myself), who lives just over the Vermont border in New York State. On the way to his town, this old diner sits abandoned by the road. I love diners, so I had to take and share this picture, oaky?
|On the way back from the above visit... I just liked this scene - it cried out to be photographed.|
I used to live in Boston, so it's only fair that I post one of two pics from there.
|The above was taken in the Back Bay Fens. On the other side of that bridge are the old Victory Gardens. |
Across the street to the left of the photo is Fenway Park, the home of the Red Sox.
|I can remember taking this in a Boston park, but I can't remember which one ---|
I think it was the Esplanade but it looks more like the Arnold Arboretum.
|Just a short train ride from Boston in Concord, Mass.|
|Just a little south of the above, across the border into Connecticut. I used a version of this shot with people in it (towards the left) so there is a reference point for the scale of this waterfall.|
|Somewhere around the Mass/Ct. border.|
|I don't remember where I took this - |
I thought it was near the Wachusetts Reservoir in MA,
but I could be wrong about that.
|A "Kodak moment" by the woolen mill in (upstate) Johnson, Vermont|
I walked around the headstone to the husband's side.
And there I discovered this:
