It was a gorgeous day here at the Family Farm, so I had to get out and take some pictures.
I'm always sad to see summer go, but I do love it when the leaves turn. If only they could turn colors and the rains didn't have to come. And occasionally the temperatures would hover around 80. Is that too much to ask?
Every time I see these helicopter seeds I think of a scene from the play "All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten." I can't actually remember what the scene was about, only that it needed helicopter seeds as a prop. I'm a wealth of useless information.
One of my goals was to get some pictures that had bokeh (the light that happens in the out-of-focus area). I was inspired by Pioneer Woman's photography blog and some gorgeous fall bokeh shots that her readers had taken. I'm not entirely sure if I actually have bokeh in these shots, but I like them anyway.
My dad showed me where to find this shot. I told him what I was doing, and he walked me over to some red leaf maples and reminded me of the split-rail fence. My dad is a photographer and has a poet's eye. I'm lucky.
Once I had taken enough still life shots, I decided to turn my camera on a more tricky subject. I asked her for her best camera face.
I'd say she's a natural, wouldn't you?
