Phall in Philly

I'll be back for a writing post in a few days. In the meantime, here are a few pics showing how beautiful it is here outside of Philly this time of year. We lived in Connecticut for over five years, and nothing beats autumn in New England. However, Phall in Philly comes close.

I took these pictures last weekend on a drive through the nearby countryside. At French Creek State Park, a gentleman asked if we'd like him to take a picture of us. Turns out, the guy's a professional photographer. (See pic at bottom.) Some days, you just get lucky.

This time of year provides some great photo opportunities. The one of you two is great :o)

Ken, Thanks! I could take pictures all day long for about three weeks. I bet it's amazing at Nutwood Junction!!

Anita said...

Beeeutiful! And your hair IS staying straight! :)

DebraLSchubert said...

Anita, That was before I washed it. The body is already sneaking back in. The grass is always greener (or the hair is always straighter) on the other side. Glad you liked the pics. ;-)

HOLY CRAP!! Ya'll get FALL up there!!! MAGICAL! We get 1)hot, humid summer 2) windy cold with no snow to make it fun

Only one of the trees in my yard has changed color...I named it "Henry" after Thoreau.
If u take any pics of snow this winter, you MUST post them so I can see!! I want to see it actually fall too-if u can get a pic of that-I've only seen it fall once-two years ago-on Christmas Eve, we were in the restaurant at like midnight. I looked out the window we were by, and I was like-"WHY is it raining so slow?" It never crossed my mind that it would be snow! There was like 1/4 inch on the ground, and it was gone by morning, but it was SERIOUSLY something I think about A LOT! I think it's one of the MOSt beautiful things! ...I started a new piece recently, and part of it's in Washington--I should insist on going there for "research"!! :)

Glynis said...

Beautiful, thank you for sharing your world with us.

Karen Walker said...

What lovely photos, especially the one of you and hubby (at least I presume it's hubby). I miss Fall on the East Coast. I left there in 1984. We just don't get as many colors here in Albuquerque, NM.
Blessings,
karen

Jemi Fraser said...

I love fall! Our leaves are pretty much gone now, so I enjoyed seeing yours :)

Suzyhayze said...

Why would anyone ever want to live anywhere else?

DebraLSchubert said...

Penny, You can come visit me anytime. "Research" is important to writers. I'll be sure to snap some snow pics for you. We don't get nearly the snow here they do in New England, but I'll do my best.

BTW: Give Henry a hug for me. ;-)

DebraLSchubert said...

Glynis, You're welcome! It's always so nice to see your smiling face here on my humble blog. ;-)

DebraLSchubert said...

Karen, If we could move from fall to about a month-long winter filled with beautiful snowfalls, and then head directly into spring, life would be perfect. ;-)

DebraLSchubert said...

Jemi, Isn't fall amazing? Every year it blows my mind.

DebraLSchubert said...

Suzy, Good question!

WendyCinNYC said...

Those pictures are beautiful. You've inspired me to go out and take some pictures.

DebraLSchubert said...

DebraLSchubert said...

Amy, I agree. There's nothing more beautiful than the colors of autumn.

DebraLSchubert said...

Susan, Taking pictures is such an awesome thing to do - especially this time of year.
