Thematic Photography: Fall

As the election ends and our spirits are lifted, Carmi has chosen Fall as the week's theme.

Every year when fall comes around, I am reminded of the first year my daughter left home for Chicago to go to art school. Around the middle of October she asked for pictures of the trees changing color, and I knew she might be feeling a little homesick.

I left my to-do list on the counter and went out today with my camera because the leaves are at their peak at this very moment. I haven't had time to upload them from the camera so I'm showing some from my archives.

We do quite a bit of our traveling in the fall so I've taken pictures of leaves in many different places. These photos are from Paris, Central Park in New York, and North Carolina.







Be sure to go see Carmi's picture. It's a beauty, just as fall is.

I love the first one, the most but they are indeed lovely. I had never experienced such colors until I lived in the Midwest. Great capture.

Your pictures are beautiful and help remind me of the magnificence of autumn. What a gorgeous season!

I miss you, and am trying my best to get to Raleigh within the next week or two!!!

All so pretty. Love the middle one; the red in the front, background blurred is my kind of photo!
