Photographed with iPhone 6, Monday November 23, 2015
Getting ready for Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade
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?
Schenley Park tree.
Just a couple of weeks ago. The setting sun coming through the leaves.
When I came home from school on Friday, I found the unraked leaves with raindrops on the undersides of some of them. I saw the orange tree leaves glowing like embers, with the water drops at their tips.
My driveway needs to be raked.
But if it were raked, I would have missed these jewels.
The heart shaped leaves are from the Eastern Redbud tree.
the fronts of the leaves are wet all over. The backs of the leaves, the water beads up.
Below, a single leaf on the Eastern Redbud that Ginny planted as a memorial to my parents. A lone water drip at the tip.
Woke up this morning to the first snow.
After school there wasn’t much left in the school parking lot, except for these few leaves.
Curb medley of autumn leaves with icy accents.
Steve was driving in quite a few of these and the others I pulled over. Can you tell which are shot with the Canon 5D and which are shot with the iPhone?
Walking into the room this morning I saw the oak tree catch the morning sun, reflect it onto the art room tables. Warm fire aglow. A stunning welcome to the beginning of the work day. I dialed the combination to get the camera out of my locker.
