Weekly Winners {Of Man and Nature}

“For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together.  For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.” —Edwin Way Teale

Just a reminder:  Please enter the next “Picture It Outside of the Box” photo challenge.  The theme is “Low Down”.   I would really love it if you played along.

Weekly Winners {Photo Shoot at Amicalola Falls}

Yesterday, I came full circle; if you will.

Two years ago, this month, I had the pleasure of photographing a certain family.  They were the first to be put in my professional portfolio.  These photos (the ones I took yesterday) have so much meaning to me because it really shows how much I have grown as a photographer.  I believe I’ve grown in all areas—composition, technique, and editing.   That?  Make me feel a sense of fulfillment.   It also reinforces that I am on the right path.

We met at Amicalola Falls, and I—of course—had to capture some of our surroundings before, during, and after the photo session.

Autumn Art

I must’ve looked crazy to my neighbors, this morning, with my hair all wild, carrying our pumpkins across the yard, with my camera dangling from around my neck.

It was time for a pumpkin photo-shoot.

Every year, around this time, I so look forward to taking pictures of our pumpkins and all the autumnal blessings of color.

Locally the colors are actively shifting from green to yellow to brown to orange to red.

I don’t know how it happens, but—without fail—I fall madly in love with the changes.

In fact, I look forward to it.

Flip Flops Be Gone

It seems like fall is f i n a l l y here, and I’ve traded my flip-flops for those oddly comfortable Trailbreak Crocs.

Yesterday, I even needed a sweater at the park (the park by the pool that is all closed up and covered tightly.)

Now I wait.  I wait for fiery colors to emerge.  For night to fall even earlier than it does.  For extra blankets.  And, howling wind.

Yes, my flip-flops are all but done, but fall ALWAYS makes my belly do flip-flops.

{The Flip Side}

It’s that time of year again

near. end.

The kids dressed up, collected all the candy they could, and promptly gobbled it up.

The turkey was basted and browned, delectable fixins’ were made even if part of a recipe was left out, and thanks was given.

The days are shorter, the nights are colder, and the rust colored leaves have all but fallen off the trees.

The time is near, when the lights are carefully strung, and Nutcrackers and Nativities dusted off.

The songs will be sung, more feasts will be prepared, and the love of the season will be heartfelt.

The end of autumn nears as winter begins to take its rightful place; the spirit of the season dawns, and we shall rejoice!
