Autumn leaves in photographs. Autumn light. We’re waiting for the red, yellow and orange colors to arrive. So far we’ve got mostly brown. Waiting for the frost
The leaves in the photographs give a lot of information to the viewer.
Somewhere in a box of old pics I have a photo of the kids with a backdrop of fake autumn trees and birches. I wish I could find it. It’s corny but fun. These photos have real leaves in them.
so if you’re thinking of taking pictures in leaves get ready. Here’s a link to Autumn in Pittsburgh four years ago

Streets of Gold.
Golden Gingko leaves on the city streets.
Laura and Charlie enjoying the crunch of the leaves at the playground this morning.
I tried to be an observer, not a participant. Watched them play together. Just kept shooting, trying to be unobtrusive.
Kept my distance and sorry I didn’t have a zoom lens.
It was a happy time. A joy to watch Charlie have fun in the leaves.
The bear hat doesn’t quite fit right but old grandma will knit another one.
Big slide, the swings, finding a shadow, mommy hide behind the tree trunk, throw the leaves, kick the leaves, stomp and crunch pick up a big stick.
No shortage of games and activities.
He was trying to master the balance beam, figure it out. Too hard but the fact he was trying was something to watch.
One direct smile at old Froo Froo Ruthie.
Yes he knew I was there! Hard not to notice that sock monkey who sits on the 24-70 lens.
Back to the car. Good bye playground. See you soon.
Yesterday I photographed a few scenes in the drizzly rain. I posted Pittsburgh Autumn in a Dull Light.
Today it was bright and so I returned to the same spots. You can’t see how windy it was.
Thinking about how light affects the mood, color and feel of a photograph.
Today’s shot of the Homestead Smokestacks
and Three Red Trees
and look what happened on my way home? CLOUDS! Lots of clouds arrived in about fifteen minutes time.
I was down in Homestead at the Waterfront, having been up the hill in West Mifflin.
Shopped for flannel sheets. Readying for the cold weather.
And though the day was rainy, I thought I’d shoot to include the changing leaves, give a sense of time and place.
at the Red Light I saw this tree.
And just for fun, closer to home, the dog in the passenger seat signaling a right turn?
