A cool misty rain sweeps through the hills of West Virginia on a late October morning. My schedule is rarely this open so I allow the big blue truck to take me wherever it wants to explore. No. I haven’t upgraded the truck to a robot. I don’t need to in order for it to speak to me. For those who attuned to the road just know what their vehicles are saying. Sometimes they want to race. Sometimes they want to slowly cruise and enjoy the sunshine. But if it’s a four wheel drive it’s likely to be in the mood to explore and maybe throw a little bit of mud into the air. On this particular day my truck suddenly decided to see what was on a side street and took me off the main highway. I struggled to hold him back as we traveled down the narrow lane. Then my big blue truck urged me pull into a parking lot where we found a Sassafras tree in full Fall glory. You may not believe it but four wheel drive trucks have a sixth sense and instinctively know where to find beauty in nature. I pulled up as close to the tree as I could and took out my camera. “Roll down my window down!” The truck urged. I had already planned to shoot from the cab so I could keep the lens clean but I allowed my truck to believe it was his great idea. Then he whispered, “God paints our world with watercolors.” As I observed the mists collecting on the red, orange and yellow leaves I knew what he meant.
I shot several different angles and settings and became so inspired by the beautiful leaves that I created a special one to post to Lloyd’s Lens Photography on Facebook.
I had to remove the post because Facebook deemed it to be spam and as most people who admin a business page knows there’s no appeal. If the algorithm gets you then that’s it. All we can do is wait to see if Facebook decides to take down the whole page. Now, the only reason why I even bring this up is because I have had so much positive interaction with different Facebook groups that I’ve shared with for the past few years. For those who are relying on seeing my posts come up in group feeds there’s a pretty good chance that Facebook will no longer allow me to deliver the blog to you that way. But if you enjoy my blog and my stories then you can sign up for my daily email at the bottom of my Welcome Page. As time goes on I’ll be adding other social media platforms like MeWe.com and putting more effort into things like Pinterest and YouTube and Twitter but for now be blessed and if you enjoy the photos or the stories please leave a comment in the comment section of my blog and let me know where you saw the post.
