Do Not Walk In Front Of Me, I May Not Follow.
Do Not Walk Behind Me, I May Not Lead.
Just Walk Beside Me And Be My Friend Forever.........

This week I have enjoyed the drive to and from the office so much. The stretches of highway are becoming quite beautiful to travel.
I have driven a few of the back roads on my way home to enjoy the wonderful Fall views.
The road to this old bridge is not heavily traveled so I can stop to shoot a picture or two with no problem. The bridge has wonderful shadows too, so it was a photo must.
This time of year as I am driving I am always on the look out for deer and turkey. There are a few areas in particular that they are often seen. My husband met up with a deer about a week ago, he has a big dent in the hood of his car now, courtesy of Mr. Buck.
I happened upon two turkeys this week. I always slow way down when I see them, as they will run across the road in front of you sometimes. There was no traffic on the road, so I was able to stop and capture this shot. I tried to get a photo of the two of them, but they ran off into the woods before I could get another shot.
Many yards are covered with leaves, making them such a beautiful fall scene.
I zoomed in on the leaves not noticing the shadow in the shot until I put the picture on my computer. An added plus. I guess it is the tree's branches casting the shadow, as there wasn't anything in the yard except the tree... and me.
Several yards in the area have these beautiful Burning Bush shrubs in them. I have always thought these were so nice with their brilliant deep red color. This yard has two of the larger ones in the area, their color is a little more dull than most of the smaller ones, but they are still quite beautiful.
Many barns are housing tobacco crops, just waiting for the farmers to begin the stripping process. With rain being forecast for the coming week, I am sure the farmers will be starting this process. The Holidays are right around the corner and they will be needing shopping money.
I know in the past, when we raised tobacco, we tried to take advantage of the fall rains to get as much tobacco stripped and sale ready before the holidays as we possibly could.
