Many Vermonters would agree that Fall is a beautiful time in our state (even with the impending winter, which some of us do not gleefully look forward to).  Occasionally I will be driving along on my way to work or some errand and catch a glimpse of a stunning view.

I’ve made it a habit to have a camera in the cup holder when I’m driving around, just in case. I’m going to share a few photos with you from this year in this post.  They may not be high autumn color, but I think you may appreciate them. Click the photo for a larger view. (No lives were endangered in the taking of these photos.)

Every week my co-worker and I receive emails with the latest posts at HOUZZ. Imagine Michelle’s surprise when she recognized the names of the Vermont owners of this lakeside gem:

Svetlana and Donat Stern‘s home is a feature by Mary Prince, a Boston-based photographer/writer for Houzz. How fun to read that her ideal in portraiture “includes some environmental detail where the subject is holding an object or a pet, or sitting in a favorite chair or room”. That is EXACTLY what I see in folk art portraiture!

In my house, I’d kill for a family portrait along these lines; Svetlana and Donat, on the other hand, have a very sleek and modern taste. In fact, the Sterns have a collection of Russian works by the artist identified as Postoev V.D.:

I *miss* Freshly Pressed — the tidy display of “recommended” blog posts. Sure they were heavy on posts with photos, but we are a visual society; how else to explain the quick popularity of Pinterest?

But in the recent “redo,” when logging in, we WordPressers see a series of WordPress “Ads” (what else to call those images?) instead of the much more interesting highlighted posts.

Bring “Freshly Pressed” back to the fore!

In the meantime, yesterday I took the time to take a peek at what’s been “pressed” and was well rewarded with Covetotop‘s splendid post on

Spanish little churches in the middle of nowhere.” A post filled with images that will appeal to anyone with a love of Romanesque Architecture.

You will see — and appreciate — the lovely countryside; and more importantly appreciate the keen eye of the photographer whose work is displayed.
