Another autumn face

Hi Everybody!

Had a busy day today. I had an appointment at the cardiologist for
some examinations, so had to be up and out early. I prefer my usual morning routine of take it easy.  I will be getting some new medication which should make me feel better. Getting old sucks, but the alternative - not getting old, is definitely worse!

For Art Journal Journey, inspired by the colours of autumn, I digitally reworked and changed an 'old' face and made it into a new A3 mixed media journal page. I am also linking to 99 Faces






I didn't have time to go for my Rhine walk today, so these are from yesterday, a very blustery day. There are still men at work repairing the footpath along the river:



And there are always people delivering goods, which is a problem in our little town, as the streets are old and narrow, and sometimes there are traffic jams. Of course, people living in big cities would laugh at the idea of ten or eleven cars being a traffic jam, but that's the way it is here!



Most od the trees are now bare, but some still have colourful leaves:


 Down at the Rhine the leaves stay greener longer:



Have a lovely day you all, take care, 
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  5. I liked the old face that turned into a new face. Does that make you a plastic (or electronic) surgeon?

    Loved the photos, even though they were taken yesterday. The views from the river were beautiful, and I enjoyed seeing the repairs as they were being made. And of course, the boat anchor is stunning. Hope you are having a good day and can take it easy until your new meds kick in properly.

  13. Your autumn lady is so beautiful. Yes living in a small town causes traffic jams here with the delivery men as well. I really love today's photos. Sorry you are not feeling up to par. Yes getting old sucks, certainly not for sissys.

  15. Your page today reflects the beautiful golden colors of autumn. I hope your new meds give you more energy and make you feel so much better. We need more it seems as we get older PLUS energy to be creative.

    Hugs,

  16. How pleasant to live in a town where ten cars create a traffic jam.
    Good to see a close up of the famous railings.
    The quote with the lovely golden girl is delightful, and true.
    Best wishes for feeling better very soon.

  17. Getting old? By your cheery and positive spirit I would have pegged you as early twenties.
