SPF: Fall

I was worried for a bit that I wouldn’t get to participate in this week’s Stuff Portrait Friday. Kristine was a little late getting the challenge up, and with my hit-or-miss performance since I started, the odds looked stacked against me. Fortunately this week’s SPF is about my favorite time of year: Fall.

The change of seasons

I know this might seem like a huge cop-out, but I actually wasn’t trying to capture the color change of the leaves. I was trying to find a decent way to photographically portray the wind. When the wind gusts it blows leaves off, but it’s sort of hard to predict. For me, the wind has always been a big part of fall. Fall is a season of change, and wind is the weather of change. Nobody talks about “the flurries of change” or “the patchy fog clearing in the late morning of change.”

The beauty of home

I’ll get it up eventually.

Once more I dig into the Photo Folder of Doom™ to bring you pictures of a waterfall! This is a short hike from my home. I love all the little waterways that run around my area. I sort of miss it. It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to get out and enjoy the nature back home.

My favorite part of the weather change

My favorite part about the weather cooling down is that I get to wear my sweaters. I really do like my sweaters, and I don’t get nearly enough opportunity to wear them. I just prefer warm winter clothes in general. They make me feel all soft and snuggly and comfy.

So that’s my fall in a nutshell. Walnut, if you want to get specific about it. I don’t think they get ripe enough for human consumption though. The squirrels usually get them first.

Did you play?

  1. nice pictures dave…LOL, I was trying to get falling leaves last weekend…tough shot…Happy SPF, I played!

  2. Gorgeous pictures! I like sweaters, too, but I’m usually too warm to wear them.
    I played!

  3. I love the cozy clothes that the fall brings! It’s so nice to be able to get all dressed up and not worry about melting! Great SPF! I played too!

  4. Hey Dave…thanks for coming by my SPF post! It is odd that mainly women participate in SPF, but that is cool…I just love to share some of the photos that shoot just for me. It seems I spend most of my time shooting for other people, papers and companies and rarely get to shoot stuff just for me…then again I have 4 cameras at my disposal whenever I get the whim to shoot something! The waterfall pic is great! I also love shooting those…I have spent hours at one waterfall just looking for angles and textures! I am also ready for some fall clothes! I even broke out the old brown sweater today and then suffered when the temp got up in the upper 70s. Oh well…thanks again for coming by…I try to post photos even outside the SPF, so feel free to stop by. Have a great weekend!

  5. I was looking at your tiny pictures and I am thinking gee I can’t see much, then I clicked on the picture and it got BIG and WOW. NICE. I love them. Glad I clicked on them.
