This is a picture I took on my last trip to Wilmington, DE. last month - in fact, last year as of today. The moon was a half circle high up in the sky and my camera's flash lit up what is seen in the frame. I love it so much that I made it my desktop, and thought I'd start this brief photo journey of some of the highlights of 2011. I cannot call them my favorites, because they are all equally important to me. Besides, it's impossible to select favorites among so many.
I was working on this post yesterday when I noticed my fellow OS friend Barry Doyle put up his beautiful photos and even commented on his blog. I know he is looking forward to seeing mine, although I am not a professional like he is, and photography is only an avocation for me. Of the thousands on my files, it was a time consuming and difficult decision to select the ones I did, not necessarily on their merits, but for the memories of friendships and sights that filled my heart and eyes. I hope you also enjoy what you see.
Happy 2012 to all!

Autumn paints St Joseph's Oratory grounds
What's autumn without its glory?
in pastels . . .
. . . or in blazing passions
Seasons do not affect the indoor collection of Botanical Gardens
