Today is the day that those of us residing in the USA are celebrating our "Thanksgiving" holiday. As the name indicates, this is a day we set aside for giving thanks for our many blessings.
Taking inventory for the things we are thankful for reflects positively in one's outlook on life and lifts spirits. As I have said before, if you are visiting this site, you have at least something to be thankful for – minimally electricity, use of an electronic device and access to the greatest source of information ever developed (the internet). And you likely have FAR more reasons to be thankful.
Thanksgiving in the USA is typically celebrated with family and friends along with a very large meal that often features lots of desserts and a turkey. My family and I wish you and yours the happiest, most-thankful Thanksgiving ever!
I've shared this turkey picture before, but ... it still seems the most appropriate for including in this holiday post. Turkeys are challenging subjects - they don't stop moving. This movement combined with a background that is not great in all of the directions the movement goes makes getting nice pictures challenging. For this shot, I moved in to completely remove the background from the frame.
