The True Gift of Eyesight



Extravagant!



Glorious!


Priceless!

Spectacular!



Autumn in New England is all of these and so much more. 

So is the gift of eyesight in order to view the majestic vistas!

Recently, when my beloved Lumix camera dropped on the ground and was irrevocably damaged , hubs bought me a lovely Canon Power Shot as a replacement.




It is with me at all times and during the fall, it is virtually impossible to keep it from constantly snapping photos.

The ones shown in this post were taken just yesterday on my way home.


Is there anything more precious than our eyesight and the ability to see such magnificence?

DO YOU EVER TAKE YOUR EYESIGHT FOR GRANTED?

No I do not take my sight for granted - I am so thankful to God for it. And I am thankful to be able to see your fall!

Susan, I HAVE A CANNON POWER SHOT TOO! I call it "my best friend" because it lets me take pictures of God's beautiful world. You are right......New England is so lovely during Autumn. These pictures are very nice, and have fun with your new camera!

Enjoy the weekend.

love, ~Sheri

Hello Susan..... I love the vibrant colours of the trees where you live .... stunning...
The birch trees are wonderful too... the white trunks are beautiful...
I've already had cataracts removed from my eyes.... I try to look after them... no taking eyesight for granted here...
I take my camera with me wherever I go... It lives in my handbag, unless it's in my hand.. lol.... xxx
Have a good day.. Hugs..... Barb xxx

I don't take my eyesight for granted; most of the time anyway. Macular degeneration runs in our family, so I often think about that.

So glad you got a new camera! Your pictures are always beautiful and uplifting...

I am beginning to think our whole world is one great big painting. We are tiny dabs of color, here and there.
