back up

I've been posting and getting my email through K's computer for a few days now.
I can read some of my favorite blogs through bloglines, but was missing my bookmarks and passwords and all kinds of other data.
My biggest problem was flickr. I could see my photos but was unable to log in.
When flickr merged with Yahoo there was a lot of drama merging photo accounts and I had done that on my laptop but had none of the information on K's laptop.
Locked out of my account, I made a gazillion attempts to sign in - to no avail.
FRUSTRATING.
But my genius husband had backed up my hard drive moments before the final crash and after I tore my hair out for a while he suggested putting my backed up hard drive onto his computer as a secondary user screen. (Look, I know what it all means, I just don't know how to explain it.) The upshot is: I can get into my flickr account and check my bookmarks and I'm feeling like I've grown back an amputated limb.
Dramatic, eh?

So here are the pictures of golden snow, which I'm sure will now be googled by a bunch of freaks looking for something else entirely...

Ah, life before Bookmarks and passwords. It must have been nice, this life.

Hi, I freak out if my mobile phone starts saving photos to itself intstead of onto the card. The Fall is well the Fall - golden and comforting like a warm wrap over a pair of favorite jeans. I live in a gully of gum trees - which shed their bark in Spring. They are called angophoras and have a orange trunk afterwards. You have captured the light beautifully in these photos.

I want to jump and roll in those leaves.

Or eat them.

Welcome back to the world of colorful blogging. I had been missing your photographs because, well, they are always so engaging.

I think Anonymous is trying to be supportive in the same way that one's mother was trying to be supportive when one was a nutso teenager. Or maybe your mother was supportive in a more supportive way than mine :)

Makes you wonder why anyone ever picks up a rake! Lovely.

Poor anonymous. She just needs a friend. She should sign her name.
I thought that we did autumn well here in the mountains.

Now I see that we do it well but that oh my word you do it amazingly. The light is so beautiful.

The photos are so beautful. Really lovely.

I know what you mean about teh bookmarks. I have all of my bookmarks saved on my work computer and so when I'm home over the weekend I'm a little lost. One of these days I'll put them on that one, too. (Then I'll be lost to my family for good -- surfing the Internets.)

jo read my mind. That's EXACTLY what I wanted to say.

I agree with kt. Roll in them and smell them and throw them in the air. Beautiful pictures.

Lovely leaves.

I think anonymous should find a place where she(?) feels more at home...
Karla May said…
Wow. Is there anything prettier than clear bright sunlight through autumn leaves? Not much.
Sue said…
Beautiful. Do you know how much I love leaves? Very very very very much. Glad you are finding some kind of internet normalcy. Relatively at leaste.

Such beauty - how lucky are you?
Heather said…
I'm very envious of your golden snow.
Stacy said…
WOW! We have no leaves here in my flat part of Texas. Makes me miss the east coast. Just beautiful!
Nora said…
So gorgeous! Can I ask what sort of camera you used to take these pictures?

I don't think I want to know what "golden snow" might be if I looked it up in urban dictionary.
alice c said…
I ache with envy. So much beauty outside your door.
Kim said…
is that your yard?
now I kinda get the whole raking the yard thing that is in every US sitcom.
Anonymous is merely another word for coward.
Jen said…
Beautiful, beautiful photos. As for anonymous, hey, aren't you anonymous, too? Not trying to be contrary here, but I don't know your name either!

Thank you for visually explaining to me what golden snow is.
And:
wow.

Just beautiful.
I find myself admiring the landscape more and more these days. Fall (and spring) is my favorite time of year, because of the radiant color.
