I've Been Tagged and Awarded

Quilly (Quintessentially Quilly) has tagged me for a mission. It was quite some time ago that Neal (Photographic Memories) also tagged me for this mission. I accepted, he went on vacation, I told him I'd do it when he got back and then I forgot until yesterday when Quilly tagged me too.
Yes Neal, I know, it's been WAY too long. Forgive me.
Here's the way this tag is supposed to go.

Your Mission, should you choose to accept it:

1) Go to your photo files…Select the 6th photo folder
2) Select the 6th photo in that folder
3) Post that photo along with the story behind it.
4) Then challenge 6 blog friends to do the same!

Above is the 6th photo from my 6th photo folder.

Luckily it's a fairly nice one. This is SOOC and I like the play of the light and shadow on the leaves against the blue sky on that autumn day. I was at my Mom's taking pictures of the last of the leaves on the two maple trees in her front yard. My Dad had planted the trees when we moved into the house when I was about five years old. The trees and I grew up together you might say and it gives me comfort knowing my Dad planted them all those years ago. It is a published image from last October.
Now I'm supposed to name six blog friends to do the same. I know many have already been tagged or done this before so I'll leave it that anyone who would like to accept the mission - You're Tagged! Do let me know if you decide to post that long lost image so I can check yours out as well. It's fun to go back and see what you have and discover some things all over again. My sixth folder is almost 100 folders back. I really do need to transfer some of those someplace else!! :)

I also received an award from Thom (Thoms Place 4 Well Whatever...) . Thom hasn't been blogging long and he already has a long list of followers. He is a super guy and I think he exudes a love of life. I'm overjoyed he thinks my blog is lovely. Thanks Thom, I appreciate it my friend.
Oh, I'm supposed to pass this along to fifteen others. My dear friends, if I visit you on a regular basis it's because I think your blog is lovely. If I'm there this award is truly yours as well. Grab it, post it, share it - you are all wonderful.
Sorry Thom, I hope you knew I was a rule breaker! :)

Well..... it took you long enough..... just kidding. :) I was lucky also in that my picture was a fairly nice one also. Were you waiting until there was a nice picture in that place before you decided to do it? :)

I also think you have a lovely blog. Always.
That picture is beautiful. I like taking pictures of the sky looking through the leaves.

Carletta -- you do have a lovely blog. That is because it reflects your lovely heart!

This photo is beautiful. The leaves against the sky remind me of lounging on the ground after a picnic staring up at the sky.

Congrats on the awards, Carletta! I had trouble with the 6th folder thing when I did it...because of reformatting my hard drive, etc. Things were not in order, then there were the folders of things I had scanned in to throw into the jumble. I forget how I ended up picking mine.
