Autumn Leaves in Photographs

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

Before the snow began

It just takes some getting used to. The new season. It changed this morning. We like the changing seasons, right?

This chilly icy, now tonight, snowy weather.

So hard on the trees, though. The driving.

Getting cozy by adding covers, readying for hibernation, thinking about making pots of chili, soup. Boiling the kettle for tea. Oh yes, keep on knitting a wooly sweater.

Pumpkin Season- Guest Blog

This afternoon my daughter Laura sent me some photos of their family outing to Franklin Park Conservatory. It looked like so much fun, I wish I’d been there too. Seeing the photos of Charlie enjoying the Pumpkin House made me smile. Thanks Laura.
