Weekend Snapshot: Number 63
I had intended to rake leaves this weekend, but since it was stormy until Sunday I enjoyed looking at the leaves instead.It's a good thing that I love the leaves because I sure have a lot of them. I'm glad we got some rain because the dusty leaves give me a headache but once they are wet I can enjoy them.As much as I like leaves, I also like the way bare limbs look against the sky. I think in general I like change. That's part of why I would have trouble living somewhere that didn't have four seasons.One of the sillier things I did this weekend was to try and photograph leaves falling through the sky. Easier said than done because when they fall in front of branches and other background, they don't show up. The trick is to follow a leaf against bare sky. It was raining when I photographed the sunset above, but I had an umbrella over my camera. The sun is out today so maybe I'll try and shift the leaves to surround bushes and bulbs that need a blanket for the winter.
On Monday you can find other weekend snapshots at the Home of WS.
