Default Out and About

Finally able to drive and get around on crutches. Took a late afternoon drive to see what I could come up with shooting out the car window. These are the keepers.

They are more than keepers, I can't decide on the best shot they are all great

Well that's a rather spectacular 'welcome back to the world' statement !

They're all wonderful. Glad you're starting to get around a bit. The second shot is my favorite.

What a gorgeous area you live in and you have capture it so well. Keep getting out and shooting it is great therapy.

I think I better understand your recovery now. My wife underwent a total knee replacement last Friday afternoon and came home Sunday afternoon. She is doing well and I hope by the first of next week we can begin to wean her pain meds. She is walking with the aid of a walker and using a crutch, she can go up the 9 steps to our bedroom.

3 great shots, with #3 being my favourite. Glad to see you're recovering and getting out into the fabulous area in which you live.

It's funny but growing up in the UK, California always meant SF or LA. So whenever I see mountains or snow (e.g. Harriet's latest shots) logic and common sense disappear and I find it hard to believe that they were taken in California.

Thanks folks. It's tough to take a bad picture where I live.

Love these shots! But I have to disagree with one comment you made - I thought it was impossible to take a bad picture in Yosemite. Then I saw some posted to a website that were really awful. So it's an accomplishment to take such pretty pictures, the location does help though.

Glad you are out and about (sort-of), it won't be all that long before all this agony is just a memory.
