Hello, Jean, first let me thank you for so many kind comments I found in my mail today. I´m really glad you like some of my pictures. Taking a first short look at your collection this one caught my eyes, it´s such a wonderful "moody" picture which I like very much...

Greetings from Germany, Peter

The road lucky you are!!!! Beautiful.

Jean Gregory Evans on August 7, 2008

Zoe, this is the road that the pileated woodpeckers sometimes come out of the woods and fly along in front of the car. Yep, we are lucky to live in the woods. Thanks. Jean

nice one! looks a lot like the road I live on, especially now when its rainy and dark.

Chouden Boy, Our dog got old and is gone, but we used to walk him here, it was great! The only problem was that he was brown as the leaves and when he stood still, he disappeared like great camouflage! He liked to play the tricks. Thank you for your compliment!!


Jean Gregory Evans on September 14, 2008

Don, Yes, I remember seeing that photo yesterday. Your neck of the woods has much in common with these NC mountains!

So that's where you drive along whenever you've been to town, or whatever.... it's lovely to see this, Jean. It's fascinating to view somewhere which is so familiar to you, and yet totally new to my eyes, if you see what I mean. I have a habit of sometimes 'looking' with 'new' eyes at familiar sights around here, and it's surprising how different a familiar stretch of road seems, if you pretend to yourself that it's unfamiliar. Have you ever tried that? Doing the same with a person's face is also quite interesting, and I find it handy if I'm drawing someone, to make sure I don't draw how I think they look, rather than how they actually look. It ends up being more realistic, if I do this. I wonder how that all works....anyway, I ramble on as usual, but I'm so pleased to be able to see your familiar scenes - that was really what I was saying, believe it or not!

Very best wishes to you, Jean!

This was last winter. I should go through my photos here and make a tag just for this road. I am going to be showing the color changes on my little driveway. My house is just around that next curve.

Looking new at things... this camera is doing that for me. Just last night my husband was looking at that green bug photo of mine. Klaus Herr pointed out to me that there are 2 lovely bugs on the plant, not just the one one. I told my husband that I adore my new camera that sees so much better than me and he said what I also had been thinking, that it has opened up a whole new world. We don't have to travel to see the new view. We are seeing things we have not noticed before and we both have lived right here most of our lives. The 'small' world.

Yes, I also pretend all the time about looking at things like I had never seen them before. I also pretend what it would be like to be a prehistoric person suddenly time traveled ahead to this time. It is not as difficult to imagine now that technologies are changing so rapidly. We sure do live in wonderful times. We have so many choices, we can look at things from so many different points of view and imagine.

I really wish you lived closer, it would be fun to get together and take a walk by the river.


Sue Allen on October 2, 2008

OH yes, me too, that's one thing about on here, it's so near and yet so far! I've never done the prehistoric person time travelling type of thinking before, but I often wonder if I'm treading where a dinosaur once trod, when hubbie is doing some excavations somewhere and uncovering clay which has presumably been there for eons, unseen by human eyes, at least!

Fancy you living just around the corner! That's amazing, this whole concept of computers and how they've shrunk the world is still very new to me, since we only got our first computer at Christmas time...I'm like a kid growing up all over again!

Very best wishes to you, Jean, I had better go to bed soon, I've been overdoing the late nights lately, I think..

Catch you soon though!


Jean Gregory Evans on October 2, 2008

Sue, when I see a newly dug hole, I think about how long since 'that stone' has had sunlight upon it. Was it when the dinosaurs roamed or before even. Could it have never had sunlight. Digging is very fascinating, especially with big equipment! There is a ditch near my house on this ridge that washes after the rains down to the stone. The layer is made up of thin vertical layers, most are soft. I wonder how long that those new particles have had sunlight on them every time after a rain. The erosion is setting them free every time. I wonder if anyone, any person has seen them before me. It is just an eroding layer earth in a ditch. I wish I could focus on something more worthwhile. ;-)

I love my computer too. We got our first one just before the turn of the century! I only just found Panaramio and it is the most fun I have had so far! Never chatted with people about much. Can't believe how much fun it is to share photographs with people from all around the world. I used to want a pen-pal from another country but couldn't figure out how to get it started. This is really a great big gift. I wouldn't be able to afford the postage for all the great folks I have been able to talk to!

We sleep at different times and your day starts so long before mine, that it is like time travel. It really is great, isn't it?

Sleep well, the sun is strong today but we had the temperature drop to near freezing last night. We might get frost tonight for the first time since last winter!

Misty is mysterious. Red leave is icon of Autumn. Nice shot
