November Mosaic


My creation, originally uploaded by cloudscome.

One word: leaves.

I added a few extra pictures here just to round out the square. So many of these leaf shots I really like.

Next month I am going to work on indoor photography. I really don't know my camera well in this area. I may be posting a lot of really bad photos.

Poster horse

There was a poster on the wall of my ninth grade English class that I will never forget. It had these words:

"Even a horse can be outstanding
in his own field."

I need some serious help with shooting in indoor light. The only way I could rescue this shot was to enhance it and then make it black and white. I shot in the living room light with no flash because I liked the way the light hit their faces. But my camera settings were way off! It's a point and shoot so I don't have much control. Help please! Who can tell me how to get good shots with indoor light and a cheap camera? It's a Kodak EasyShare Z730. December is going to be my month to try to learn indoor photography.

I just can't get enough of these disappearing road shots. It was another day of cold rain. This was on the way home, about 4:30pm. The trees were glowing.

A cold drizzle is falling today. This line of maples continue to hold their color, cheering us all. 10 inches of snow fell to the north of us.

Shared Harvest


peppers after frost, originally uploaded by cloudscome.

I took this picture in a community garden. The peppers have survived our first frost, but the leaves are shriveled and the vines soft.

As I was walking away an elderly gentleman came up and said hello. He was very gracious and friendly. He said he had seen me taking pictures of the peppers and I was welcome to take as many home as I wanted. I thanked him gratefully, thinking of the Chinese pork and peppers dish my boys love.

As I leaned down to pick them he turned away. He walked off muttering something that sounded like "Help yourself! You just have to be careful about something something something... you don't want mutter mutter mutter..."

What do you think he meant by that?

leafless, originally uploaded by cloudscome.

I think this tree is dead. It was leafless all summer. Most of the rest of our trees still have leaves.

A Little Late

So, I didn't get to it till tonight. It was still fun. We toasted the seeds and I got to sit back and watch my little boys dance around the kitchen with happiness.
