Our World Tuesday: whether there's weather

It is All Hallows Eve here in North America, and the sun is trying to break through the clouds, the same clouds from which we just had a sleety mix of rain and snow, to make life interesting for Hallowe'en Trick-or-Treaters. We really have no idea what the weather will be tonight.
For Our World Tuesday, here are some photos from the last couple of evenings. Our darlin' dog Lindy spotted this deer on the street and she was so excited, pulling on her leash, Dick had a hard time getting clear shots of it. Please don't try to enlarge these two pictures, they'll make your eyes go funny.
My favorite is the last photo, of a sunflower's dying days.

Lovely sunset. The deer looks to be inside city limits. That always creates excitment. Hope the weather is not too cold for the little ones tonight.

I hope you're not getting the heavy snows that NY and Virginia have experienced.
The sunflower is very interesting - a larder for small birds:-)

I, too, love the sunflower, Kay! How can something in its last days look so exquisite? “I am sleepy and so very tired of focusing on the sky all day”, its heavy head seems to say.

It's definitely fall for you all on the mainland. I'll post some fall photos tomorrow if I can get my act together. That sad, drooping sunflower truly heralds the coming winter.

It's off and on raining today and there was a huge rainbow this morning. Mom said, "It's almost winter after all."

I love your sunflower Kay - the underside is like matting - a unique photo of a tournesol that can no longer lift it's face to follow the sun but with a beauty all of it's own.

A sunflower, dying or otherwise, is one of the most rewarding things to photograph, Kay. Love this ahor of it bent over with the weight of life oozing away.

Love the sunflower Kay, to me it speaks of the bounty of autumn and the fading of all that colourful grandeur. It is heavy with seed to feed the hungry in the coming storms. Nature so kindly provides for it's own.
Seeing a deer in town for you is like hopping kangaroos in the city for us, the anomaly causes all the fuss and excitement.

Beautiful shots of the photos, the sunflower was dried already but the best effect on photography.

Rajesh said...

Wonderful shots, especially the last one.

The sunflower looks so sad. She doesn't like to see winter arriving so early.

Ah, the withered sunflower, ready to seed for the next blooming season. A simple joy to my eyes!

I love the way the sunflower looks after going to seed. Fantastic shots of the deer crossing the street. I enjoyed all the photographs.

Leslie said...

i love that shot of the sunflower, too...

Nice shots of the deer. The poor old Sunflower is keeling over, but the birds will love the seeds. One of our neighbours has a Sunflower growing in an odd place on his drive, it gets a little taller every day and is flowering now, rather late.
