October Still Life

We had our first assignment in my reorganized photo group. The challenge was “Unusual Light Source”- meaning no flashes, LED lights and no sun. We had to use other sources of light. I had no interest in this topic, but, being a rule follower, I set up this still life, focused my camera and took the shot by candlelight at night.

Although I went into the challenge kicking and screaming, I ended up taking a more creative, fun photo before I took this one and took both to my photo group. I am not posting it online, but will show it to friends upon request. 🙂

It’s Fall!

I got in the spirit of autumn this week after a couple days recuperating from my Yellowstone adventures. I put the fall wreath on the door, bought some mini pumpkins, and made applesauce from the zillions of Fuji apples on our trees.  Fall is my favorite season, and I can’t wait for the leaves to change!
