Except When …

Bane of photographer

Mobility issues

Influencing options


Except photography itch

Hard to deny

Throws out its call

Changing seasons

Whispers to the soul

Hard to resist

Long drive

Riding out the pain

Yearning for quiet hideaway

Reach final destination

Except others intrude on the space


Camera in hand

Except battery dies

Adventure suddenly ends

Except I did get a few

Hopefully redemption next year

    I was with you every line, knowing well the call vs the reality, and then the dead battery…argh. Beautiful photos. Well worth the effort.

    That darn battery. I hate when that happens, but I also understand the itch to get out and photograph. Those images are really beautiful.

    Such joys do help us move. Beautiful autumn scenes. I love the red red maple leaves.

      Thank-you, Janice. ❤ Yes, autumn colors do encourage one to get out into nature. Those were the last of the reds. Went out a bit late this season.

        It was especially pleasurable to see those reds because that kind of a colour is rare near my current home (and I’m not straying far lately) while in Ottawa and Toronto, homes of my past, there is usually a feast of such colour.

    Oh my goodness Olga – how clever of you to make a verse out of your outing despite battery issues! Gorgeous images this week.

      Thank-you so much, Tina. I’ve been watching the season change from my balcony, but needed to get out there in person for my own battery recharge. 🙂
