Creek back to normal

The North Chickamauga is back to normal levels after flooding a couple of weeks ago. the water looks greenish from a distance but it is really quite clear if you are looking straight down on it.

I was taking some pictures near the North Chickamauga Creek today and heard a woodpecker. I looked up and this really pretty red-headed woodpecker was in the tree above my head. I managed to get a picture of it before it flew away. Unfortunately I don't have a telephoto lens but if you click on the picture you can see it much better and see the nice red color.

Stone Horse

Sorry I haven't posted in nearly a week! Been having computer and blogger problems but I am now on a brand new computer and hoping things will get back to normal.

I took this picture outside of a new restaurant in the Chattanooga area, P.F. Chang's China Bistro. I was standing beneath it and it's quite impressive.

Time to build an ark

We have had so much rain lately, the North Chickamauga Creek isn't so little anymore. It's started spilling over and flooding in some places.

A Real Dollhouse

This was delivered to my neighbor a few days ago. Every little girls dream. I'm assuming they plan on restoring it for their daughter. I'll take another picture when they do.

Chef Lin Chinese Buffet

I had some of these for supper. Chef Lin features all you can eat crab legs and Chinese specialties. The sign outside proudly proclaims they were voted Chattanooga's "Best Buffet for under $10.00"

Glorious day leads to spectacular sunset

The weather today in Chattanooga was wonderful. Morning fog burned off and the sun was out and the temperature was a mild 78 degrees F (25 C) with blue skies and sunshine. Then we were treated to this sunset. Enjoy!

Hollywood Canfidential

This limo and red carpet are actually made from cans. School groups competed in Hollywood Canfidential recently. They used food cans to create scenes with a Hollywood theme and then the cans are donated to a local food bank.

Church steeple

I like this scene of the church steeple with the trees as a backdrop and I have been trying to get a decent picture of this for a long time now. It's been difficult for several reasons. First, this is a busy intersection and I can't just stop and take a picture and pulling off the road changes the perspective and it's not so attractive. Also, the large expanse of sky usually makes it difficult to get a decent shot of the steeple and trees. This morning I was upset because I missed the green light and it seems to stay red forever. Then I glanced over and I was finally able to get a shot. It's not the best, but it's better than my other attempts.

More fall color

I'm not sure but I think this is called a burning bush because of the beautiful color. Maybe someone who knows more about these things than I do can confirm or correct me. Whatever it's called, I think it's beautiful.

Not so easy money

Don't know about other parts of the country, but these places are popping up all the time. I guess they provide a service but the interest rates they charge are steep. I imagine if your financial situation is such that you need to use one, then you truly can't afford their interest rates. I do have to say, their building is quite colorful.

Artisan breads

This is a display of specialty bread at the local supermarket. Doesn't it all look yummy?

Our fall foliage colors are reaching their peak and will soon be gone. I'm enjoying it while it lasts.
