It is hoped that you would respect my ownership of the images posted here on Shutterbug Underexposed, despite the ease with which you could copy my photos. If you would like a true photographic print of any of my images, please contact me at goodiesbaker@yahoo.com and I will be happy to provide you with one.

Taking some butter out of the refrigerator this morning reminded me of an incident that happened about seven years ago. Wednesdays used to be for smiles, so I thought I’d give you all a little chuckle today. Before moving to Virginia, we lived is a sweet little house in Tennessee. One chilly morning I remembered that I had forgotten to take two sticks of butter out to soften up the night before so that I could bake some cookies. Not wanting to waste time, I took them out and placed them still in their paper wrapping on top of the furnace vent on the kitchen floor to soften while I got my husband’s breakfast made and lunch packed for the day. About 20 minutes later I went back to get the sticks of butter only to find two perfectly wrapped packages of nothing. The paper wrappers had stayed in tact, but the butter was gone. Every last drop of it melted down the furnace. Of course I did my best to clean as much of it out of the duct as I could reach down with wads of paper towels while my husband took his shower. I never told him of this incident until after we moved, but every time the furnace kicked on for the rest of the winter we lived there, it smelled like cookies baking in that part of the house. mmmm yummy. :o)

Today’s colors are from my daughters’ music teacher’s yard.

Nice, well balanced montage of fall colors. I like all the photos, but especially the focus you used on the maple leaves.

A fine collection of colors. I guess my favorite would have to be the cherries.

Whoa! I love the textures in the bark in the third image. The effect the depth has had on the background in the second image is interesting as well; it almost makes it look like a painting. Great set, Micki.

This is such a lovely collection of colors, textures and forms from autumn/fall and it is so difficult to accept that next week already brings the beginning of winter.
