Hi all! I thought it was time to change it up a bit with the blog theme and layout after I started using the “360 Pano Camera” panorama app on my phone this morning. Hopefully I didn’t shock anyone too much 😉 I took the header picture while on a break during the Human Service Forum’s Administrative Professionals Day Workshops. So when I got home this afternoon I started playing around, intending only to feature one of the panoramic shots I took -somehow or other. One thing lead to another… and I ended up changing my theme to Twenty Eleven, with the best of the panoramic shots featured as my Header. I really really like the new app and this was THE perfect spot to try it out.
I took the photo at the back of The Log Cabin Banquet Facility, on the slopes of Mt Tom in Holyoke. The view itself looks WNW down on the town of Easthampton and beyond into Westhampton and the Berkshires. I love this photo for so many reasons. It symbolizes the dynamic, fluid nature of New England and Western MA. It’s also a great representation of my life – stormy, sunny, always changing, and always beautiful. I’m hoping my “ex-pat New Englander” blogger friends will enjoy the picture, and maybe even get a little nostalgic. (That means YOU Barney!) And last but not least, I love it because my Dad proposed to my Mom in the spring of 1959; a stones throw from where I snapped the photo….. Love and Hugs! D.
