A Note From the Road: Road Trip Kentucky - Ghostly Peacock - J.H. O'Bryan Ave - Grand Rivers, Kentucky

You never know what is going to appear on camera..... #TakeTheBackRoads #adelliott
Ghostly Peacock - J.H. O'Bryan Ave - Grand Rivers, Kentucky - a.d. elliott

Patti's 1880's Settlement was a cute little place to stop and hang out Mom,

While wandering around the village, we noticed the peacocks, in particular, this guy, who is trying so very hard to impress the lady.  She is having none of it, and would rather eat.

I thought it was a funny courtship story and then......

as I was processing the images, I noticed this blur that only exists in the peacock pictures (the rest of them look fine).

I *think* (hope) that this is some sort of weird refraction caused by the humidity, the cage, and the sun.  Otherwise, I was nose to nose with "something".

A Note From the Road: In the Garden - Dahlia in the Rain - Bella Vista, Arkansas

Dear Henry,
It has been raining buckets here today, but for a brief moment it stopped and I was able to run outside to take pictures of the raindrops.
I love how the dahlia turned out, I think I am going to make an art print out of it.

A Note From the Road: Road Trip Arkansas - Is That A Ghost? - HWY 549 - Bella Vista, Arkansas

Eerie and unexpected.
This was a little creepy Mom - 
I was wandering through the forest, getting pictures of leaves, moss, and squirrels etc and when I started processing this image I noticed the shadow.
I *think* (hope) it is simply motion blur from the wind, otherwise, Whispy and I were nose to nose.
I suppose it is almost Halloween.

A Note from the Road: Road Trip Nevada - Naked Strip - Las Vegas Blvd - Las Vegas NV

Look, Mom! No cars!

Some months ago I had made plans to run the Las Vegas Rock and Roll half marathon just to get this picture Mom.
Due to some unforeseen training issues (otherwise known as not training enough) I had to pass on running it.  We had thought to cancel the trip, but after #VegasStrong we made sure we came.
I was able to get the picture I wanted and I saw the race from the sidelines.
Next year!
