The never ending story

It's a never ending story for me: managing all that I get myself into.  Summer class, intense 8-week fall class, etc.  You know the drill.  But once a thankfully long while something comes along that trumps all else, like my father's death a couple of weeks ago.  

While meeting with family and beginning to process our loss, everything went on hold except for the photo ops that appeared right in front of me.  This time last year, I did the same - grabbed the photo ops that gave me a little respite by taking the camera for a walk in solitude.  This year, I had only the iPhone, it was too cold to spend much time outside, and I didn't have a ton of time alone (which was probably good), but I grabbed pictures everywhere I could, very often from the passenger seat.  

A few friends on FB liked them, so I'm shifting them over here, too.
