It’s turning out to be a beautiful year for autumn leaves in the Midwest. I think the colors will be at their peak in a week or so. I grabbed my camera and took a different walk route yesterday afternoon for this view. Bonus – I even remembered my camera!
It feels more like winter than fall in the Midwest, and just about all of the leaves have fallen from the trees. My husband and I are braving the frigid weather to rake our leaves before snowfall, in an attempt to help our new grass grow. Here are some brilliant red leaves from before they all fell.
You will probably see quite a few fall photos on this blog over the next couple of months. It’s my favorite time of year, and I have a house now, which means room to decorate! I’m even making a few of my own pieces this year. (Just call me Martha.) This was one of the centerpieces at my bridal shower 4 years ago. I love that I’ve been able to re-use it! (We definitely picked a good season to get married.)
This flower recently started blooming at our house – can anyone name it? It started out with very long, pretty leaves, so I didn’t even realize it was going to bloom until the buds formed.
One of the few times I have to just go out and shoot photos is during my lunch break, which doesn’t lend itself to the best light, but I make do. Here’s a shot from my photo walk on Wednesday.
And don’t forget about my holiday portrait special!
This is the Broadway Bridge on the north side of downtown. I know the colored lights have been added this month to promote Breast Cancer Awareness month, but don’t you think they look more like Halloween lights?
I’ve spent a lot of time admiring the changing leaves and beautiful fall colors lately. And since the trees are almost to their peak already, you may see even more of these photos from me in the next few days.
