Autumn Scenes

This week's song for Kathy's Song-ography is Bruce Hornsby's Look Out Any Window. The song has way more meaning and depth than the very straightforward chorus that I chose to interpret. Hope you enjoy. 

Look out any window
Look out any open door
Look out any window
See what's going on in the world around you.
The above two shots were what was happening outside my Mom's window and door as I visited her this past week.
Taking 'look out any window' in the literal sense this was what I saw looking out my sunroom window. As some of my readers may know this is V-Notch - so named for the notch in her ear.  She was born this past spring and we've watched her lose her spots and turn into a toddler. One day this week she got tired and laid down under my Rose of Sharon bushes. Just look at those sleepy eyes.
I see her quite regularly. She comes for the acorns that have fallen under our oak tree that's just to the right out of the camera frame.
Linking to Weekly Top Shot.

Hi Carletta ~~ Thank you for dropping over to say Hi. Coming here was like coming home. I love your road scene, it reminds me of when we got off the freeway (in W.Va) and took the little roads along the river and through the small town.

Congrats too on having one of you pictures used. I am happy for you.
You are welcome to drop by some more. Thank you for coming. I have slowed down, no Ruby Red Tues or Sky Watch now. Was I playing with poetry when you last visited?

Adrienne said...

To find all this right outside your doors and windows...what a blessing!

sparkle100-havealook.blogspot.com said...

To find the blessings as you show. You took some outstanding takes.

Is most beautiful it really makes

one think.

How nature and the animals mean to us more then all the materialistic things we do own
that really do not compare what the Lord has given us to admire.

Outside our doors or at your Moms place you took or our neighbours or our journey takes of the surroundings. Gods world.

Nicki said...

Lovely foliage shots and too sweet that you have such a connection to this particular deer. I hesitate to get familiar with the neighborhood kitties that show up at my back door looking in. I sneak out and leave them a bit of food, but try not to get too attached.

Betsy Adams said...

Your leaves are gorgeous, Carletta.. We are getting some pretty Fall colors here also now.

Love the little deer. Glad he has a distinguishing mark --so you can recognize him... He's a Cutie.

Hugs,
Betsy

Susan said...

Wow-beautiful color in those leaves. Fall at its peak. That deer must feel secure in your yard. What a testament to you-as long as she doesn't eat the flowers, right?

don said...

Those autumn leaves are gorgeous. V=Notch is a pretty animal. I hope she spends the winter where you can watch her and perhaps give her a bite to eat.

Kathy McB said...

Literally sighing here! That first shot is perfection! The colors, the lighting, the bits of boken in the background. My what a beautiful view you have when looking out your window! Thanks for joining in on Song-ography!

The teenage deer is just adorable. What beautiful eyes. Your leaf photos are pretty, too!

What a treat to see this youngster so near! Your leaves are gorgeous, with exquisite bokeh! I do hope you'll link up with I Heart Macro this week:-)

You won't find any fall shots any prettier than these and to think they were right outside your window.....

VNotch is so cute and I love that he feel so safe in your yard....

You have such a wonderful "eye", Carletta. And a real talent for composition. Those autumn leaves are just exquisite. And how sweet to have this little guest come to visit. I assume he/she has discovered your garden? :-)

Stewart M said...

I do like the deer - but the light through the leaves is really good.

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne.
