I went to a photo workshop in the Smoky Mountains titled "Autumn Brilliance." But when I got there, everything was still green, as Mother Nature was taking her sweet time ushering in the Fall colors this year. Our instructors kept reminding us that green is a color.
And we groaned and made the best of it. After all, the Smoky Mountains are still beautiful in every season. But I heard stories from locals about how nasty some tourists were to them because the annual fall color show had not started.
Who would let that influence how they treated the people they met?
I found fabulous sights and colors to photograph, and I'll just have to go back sometime for autumn brilliance.
When have you found that your expectations influenced your perceptions and actions?

I love reading, writing, and photography! Spending time with my family and friends around the kitchen table is about the best occasion I know. I'm just beginning to stretch my creative wings, so here's to gentle breezes and clear skies.
