The phone takes pictures okay, but they're not always the best. I'm going to have to get out there with my good camera and get some pictures. This time of year I start falling behind with these things. There's actually a lot of stuff around here to get pictures of. Maybe I'll swing back by this turkey with my good camera and see how the picture comes out.
I have to say I felt a little creepy while I took this picture because there was a guy watching me from the garage in the background. I decided that only one picture was good enough this time. I'll go back and take ten. I don't think he really minded though. After all, he obviously made the turkey so it would be looked at. I'll talk to you later.

These hills are a few miles from where I live. They actually extend through the whole state, including inside the town I live. This particular place is very beautiful when you go there and look at the hills. I just can't capture that beauty with my pictures for some reason. Maybe I should experiment with that idea.
Whenever I see any of these hills, I feel like I'm home. I've felt like that my whole life, even before I ever lived here. My grandparents' farm was in these hills not far from where I live now. I drive past it often, but it has changed now with a new owner. Such a shame, but seeing it always brings back good memories.
I think that's enough until next time. I'll talk to you later.

On my time away from here I had some time to think about the way to do things here. Before that I was struggling a little bit with my writing. Trying to say something interesting about every single picture had just gotten so difficult. That's when a slightly new thought dawned on me.
I can write about anything I want here. I don't even have to mention my pictures if I don't want to. I love the pictures, and I love talking about them, but they're just not always easy to write about. They are really only there to enhance my writing anyway.
I'm also thinking about posting a little more randomly. Sticking to a strict schedule is a little confining. I may post two or three days in a row now, but then skip three or four days. I don't know. I'm just thinking about doing it that way. Anything to feel a bit more free.
I took a bunch of pictures with my cellphone camera, but when I got home and looked at them the quality was just too poor. I'm going to have to go back out with my good camera and get some of them again. I guess that's the breaks. I'm learning how to use each camera properly all the time.
I think that's enough for today. I'll talk to you later.

The odd part of the whole thing is that I really went out and found several positive things about fall this year, but this time of year still depresses me deep down for some reason. I really have enjoyed my time out in nature though. I think I'll feel better when winter gets here. That's kind of strange, huh?
I also find it hard to get back to writing the blog after I've been gone for too long, like this time. Maybe you can identify with this. In a way I feel kind of embarrassed that I've been gone for so long. I always feel like the reason for my absence isn't quite good enough. But sometimes a break from even something you love is a good thing.
I also can't really go out to the nature parks as much because it's hunting season around here, and I don't really want to get shot while wearing my very brown coat. I see people out hunting wherever I go around here. That will die down as winter comes in.
I do feel like writing a bit more again. My Halloween posts were short partly because I had lost the right thoughts I needed to write. This break gives me some of those thoughts back.I did kind of like those short posts though. I may throw in some like that here and there as time goes on. Most posts will be more long winded like this one though because this is what I do it for.
Even though I never mentioned this beautiful barren tree even once in this post, I'll talk to you later.
