SmugMug Appreciation Sunday — No. 063

In brief, these posts serve to introduce new readers — and reintroduce regular readers — to photos from the early days of this blog and, occasionally, to photos from days before this blog came into existence.

Today’s stroll on memory lane continues the recap of my two-hour drives.

The photos are from two small Galleries (HERE and HERE), and are documented in THIS post. That post is the last of four posts documenting said Two-hour Drives, occasions when I went for a drive specifically with the purpose of taking photos. Colorado was a great place for such drives because most of the roads I drove on were well-suited for stopping and taking photos. Here, in Illinois, not so much.

Or, perhaps, I just don’t have the eye for vast corn and soybean fields.

These galleries are about Canada Geese and a fence.

Here’s the fence . . . .

Really, I could stop with those two photos, but here are a few more . . .

These were shot from a distance . . .

Ther fence was much closer.

Like, across the street.

Really, it’s almost not worth having slideshows, but it’s a tradition, eh?.

Note: the transition is set to 4sec to read the caption, but if still too fast, move the cursor anywhere within the photo — you’ll see a pause button on the lower left, and, once paused, you can use the left and right arrows on both sides of the photo to navigate the slideshow. It will make it easier to read the captions.

I highly suggest watching the slideshow in full-screen mode, but that’s just me.

You’ll exit the slideshow and find yourself in SmugMug if you click anywhere in the photo instead of the pause button. You can then scroll through the photos or interact in other ways.
