The autumn leaves

Some leaves just don't want to hit the ground.

Nice eye. That looks like one of the Photoshop examples in a British photography magazine I just bought. Even more impressive that the colors and orientation of the leaf were real.

great photo... hey, are you going to do 26 things?

Thanks for the nice comments. Mike, yeah, I was surprised to see the leaf just hanging there on the cement wall of our house with no visible means of support. Very strange.

Deb, I wasn't aware there was going to be a new 26 things. I'm incredibly busy with work and projects around the house, but I may give it a shot anyway. I noticed that one of the items in the last one was "construction", and if they include that in the new one, I should have plenty of potential subjects for that next month without having to leave my own basement.

Go ahead, twist my arm. Owwww! Okay, okay, I'll give it a shot. :-)

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio

There used to be a cat
