Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. – Confucious
I did some more work on fall “foliage” using the Meet Your Neighbors approach before I left. As part of my final presentation, I put up these three “quadtychs” at a volunteers meeting and let the volunteers vote on which ones they liked best. Everyone had three votes by putting sticky dots on the images they liked best. It could be three votes for one image, two and one, or one each.
The sunflower on the top left of the first image got by far the most votes with 33 out of 131 votes (25%). The Illinois bundleflower on the lower right of the second image, got the second place with 18 votes (14%). The big bluestem on the lower left of the last image came in third with 16 votes (12%). Runner up was the heath aster, upper right on the 3rd image.
Photographically I have been a little slow getting back up to speed once I returned home. Driving 21 hours in 2 days, catching up on mail and stuff, and just taking some time off to read science fiction and think about the last two and half months. Just ready to get going again, and we get hit by Sandy. Lost power at 8:50 pm on Monday, and still no power. Still spending time at the library. I like libraries, but I hoped to work from home when I got home. Things will settle soon. Hope you had a Happy Halloween!
