Octoberness

Below is a still life I shared with my weekly photo group on Tuesday. I have been in the group over 4 1/2 years now, and it has become an important part of my life. As I prepared this photo for class (on zoom, of course), I remembered that I had created a still life in the same spot in our house (on my father’s antique dental cabinet) for my second photo ever for this group back in 2016. You can see that photo and read about my experience as a new and very nervous member of the group here.¬† I still learn new things every week and am constantly inspired by the group’s creativity and technical skills.


Fall, sort of . . .

 

Our walk at Willow Lake showed us that Fall is on its way (some yellow leaves), but drought has caused the lake to recede and plants to dry up and wither. What used to be under water is now mud. Many trees still have green leaves however, which created the green bokeh areas in the background of my photo. We are looking forward to some colder weather and hopefully rain in the coming weeks.


Autumn Magic

Beautiful light on autumn leaves. . .

Leaf Greetings

As we walked around Courthouse Square a week ago, the branches over our heads formed an arch so the autumn leaves could greet each other.


Choices

If leaves could choose their colors, maybe they would look like this . . .

October Magic

My favorite time of year! Fall leaves, pumpkins, and the magic of Halloween!


Backlit Black and White

I was sitting at my computer one morning last week when I noticed the play of light and shadows on leaves in the front yard. I took a break from my work and captured this multiple exposure, which I thought looked even more interesting in black and white.

Autumn Reflected

Here is another image from last week’s walk in Watson Woods. There were ducks- and I waited 15 minutes for one to swim into the orange reflection. I ended up liking this photo better- it’s all about the trees!


Leafy Abstracts

Some fun multiple exposure creations for Friday:

The Bench

There was still a lot of snow on the ground as we stepped out of the car on our way to one of our favorite Italian restaurants. But the area around this bench was snow-free, and the orange leaves on and around it seemed to create a little autumn vignette. I quickly snapped a photo with my iPhone, edited it in Snapseed, and called it done.
