Lunch time musing

I was setting here going thru my blogroll and trying to figure out how I ended up getting involved with all of these folks. I remember originally doing a Google search on "Blue Ridge Mountains" and ending up at Marie's Blue Ridge Blog. Her photos kept me coming back for a good while before I expanded my blog list (a bit of history is in order I guess, I have had a website for about 10 years now and I've been reading blogs since the early years of Scripting News and Radio. I was reading Ev and Megnut before Google got involved in blogs, so I am not totally in the dark about these things called blogs).
Anyway, on with the thread, once I had been reading (mostly enjoying the photos) Marie for a while I started perusing her links. That led to Fred First and Goose Creek in Fragments From Floyd and the whole Floyd County Blog Gang (Loose Leaf Notes, Blue Ridge Muse, and Ripples) which became a community I enjoyed visiting. Thanks to Fred , Colleen, Doug and David for letting me stop by to visit.
It was thru this core that my Blogroll has expanded. When I am online with time to kill, I will start running through some sites link list to see if they have anyone I haven't read who says something that resonates with me. My blog's links (now a real Blogroll because they really do make it easy to keep your links up without a lot of programming) do not follow any type of pattern. I tend to read widely and be attracted to sites that are very diverse, so you never know what you might run into on my Blogroll.
What started this thought perking today was that while I was reading Cedar Press Hill, there was Fred. When reading comments on Fred's site, there was Judith Polakoff. It seems like I run into Pablo from Roundrock Journal all over the place.
And round and round it goes.

Morning Drive III

This just goes to show you how you never know what you might miss. I passed this scene, caught sight of it out of the corner of my eye as I passed over a small bridge, drove on and decided to turn around and go back. Thanks Fred, I think the advice took...And this is the shot I am proudest of. Posted by Picasa

Morning Drive I

Fred First over at Fragments From Floyd blogged about always taking your camera and (this is the important part) stopping when you see what looks like a good shot and taking it. Well on the trip to work this morning I took him up on it and this is what resulted... Posted by Picasa
