Lessons of the Fall

It's hard to follow Architect Design or JCB without becoming more motivated to explore the architecture and natural beauty in your own backyard. And I know that many of the adventures Janet captures with her Nikon require a bit of imagination but very little cash. In keeping with that spirit, I usually like to promote museum talks and gallery happenings that are free and open to the public. Recently, though, I came across some creative, tuition-required September classes and workshops that I want to share. Hope these inspire you to investigate the offerings in your neck of the woods.

Oh what an unexpected but fun thing to see here! Those were fall wildflowers picked from behind Fallingwater. Such good memories!

You're a master with the flowers. I'll go back and add a link to Fallingwater. Not sure why I didn't the first time :)

my man has a really great photo tutorial site:

Check it out for great tips!

Stefan's floral stylings are par excellent! I do love fall and this outing was the perfect combination of friends and food, set against a beautiful backdrop. We had the most gorgeous sunset that evening. Sigh.

Am dying to take Kate's SLR class. Perhaps in the spring. Incidentally, I just hired Rick Rhodes for a job today!

Eerie about Rhodes! Bloggers' ESP ?

Once again, you have read my mind!
