Fall Color on and near Downey Place, Aurora, IL

2006, Herbert E. Lindberg

As Mary and I (Bert, a.k.a. Herb) packed for the trip to Aurora, I tossed my Canon SD 450 Elph into my cloth folder-carrier on general principles.  I'm certainly glad I did because the fall colors in Aurora were beautiful, and a few other photo opportunities arose before and after the memorial.  Daughter Barbara did more serious photography in The Healy Chapel before the memorial service and in Dennis and Susanne's home immediately after the memorial.  I've posted selections from Barbara's pictures on three more pages in this four-page group.

Mary chats with Dennis as he mows the lawn and mulches leaves Saturday morning.

Sharon did most of the final sort and mounting onto three boards.

Maddie joined in deciding photo layout.

Sunday morning, Barbara, Mary and I accompanied Susanne as she walked Bella around the neighborhood.

We were greeted by a display of color just a short distance west along Downey Place.

Monday morning, Doug, Susanne and I walked Bella along Downey Place to the center of Aurora.
As we returned a train passed by just before we got to Susanne's home.  I'm told this is a rare event.

The picture above is the first frame of an inadvertent movie (I flipped the mode switch as I
pulled the camera out of its case).  The picture here is the best I could do after detecting my error.
