I don't, but I've been looking at these last leaves recently trying to find a decent shot like this. Well done.
Bill Phillips: Think The Cascades are long forgotten!
I actually don't have an idea. lol Nice shot though.

On a different note, please check my blog when you get a chance and see if the call to send aid to Japan interest you.
Bill Phillips: I had a look and wish you well, it is a terrible human tragedy.

Does anyone remember those single-play records, Bill??!! grin

One thing I love about the winter leaves is that they finally fall when the spring buds push them off their perch. Talk about tenacity!
Bill Phillips: Apart from me you mean? I have all my old singles and have copied some of them onto the computer!
Almost oak leaf art Mr Phillips
Bill Phillips: That's me....Mr almost

No green spring leaf could beat these beautiful autumnal oak leaves - an image of melancholy and continuity in a world of daily changes!
Bill Phillips: I agree Philine. The colours of winter are beautiful but subtle.
LOL! I prefer taking shots of the NEW leaves at the moment, and am burning those old ones in my hearth
Bill Phillips: Off with the old on with the new eh Marion?

I am relieved to say I don't remember it - must have passed 'family favourites' by!
Bill Phillips: Well they weren't exactly Black Sabbath. They had a brief period around 1963, all clean cut and wholesome...then came the Beatles el al!

Dont remember the song,good photo Bill
Bill Phillips: I think i may be the only person who does mate!
A lovely close up Bill with fantastic DOF.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Laurette.
I can't remember that one Bill but this post would have been brilliant for Leaf Friday if it was still going. Brilliant anyway
Bill Phillips: It seems that nobody remembers it...except megrin
The colours here are magnificent, Bill. A keeper for sure.

Only wish I had know about the Cascades' last leaf song when I posted this one.
Bill Phillips: It would have been perfect Beverly

And then there were four...
Bill Phillips: Well I suppose that must have been the case at a point in time
Nice shot Bill, I don't recognise the video track though.
Bill Phillips: Nobody does Brian. I even remember most of the words!!!
Cascades? Never heard of 'em, Bill!
Bill Phillips: They only had one hit record in this country...Rhythm of the rain which reached No5 in February 1963.
This is quite a sad picture Bill but the sky is nice and blue and your focussing is lovely
Bill Phillips: I suppose it is in a way Stanley.

Love the music..... wow are we that old, I love the cracking sound of the needle in the beginning, TRUE MUSIC.... grin
A great picture of the leaves, it soon will be over for them too.
Gary Grant hé....... tongue
Bill Phillips: Well I am. I have a copy of the record.

Our Helen likes Cary Grant and actually saw that statue being unveiled...or was going to, anyway it was unveiled when she was a student in Bristol...and Cary Grant and I were both born in Bristol....but there the resemblance ends tongue

I don't remember the song but I do recall the 45rpm discs; makes me think of Juke Box Jury now (why was show ever like that on the TV rather than the radio?) .

It may be the end of winter but this weekend is always the most depressing - only 47 hrs away from slavery rather than 48!
Bill Phillips: Why was Juke box jury ever on at all?

Just turn up for work an hour late

Hey billl i din't notice your 1200th post must be as old as dirtgrin....
i still have 1,014 posts to catch up.... Duh.....petergrin
Bill Phillips: Older......I didn't notice either! Thanks.
Also remind me of Nick Drakes song 'five leaves left' which was sadly just about true for him
Bill Phillips: I have had to google him as I didn't know the name. a tragic character by all accounts...I'm off to see if any of his stuff is on spotify!
