The pumpkin patch priced all of their pumpkins by the glorious stems, so I rolled with it. I'm going to make a conscious effort to a. "roll with it" more often, and b. write more on my blog. As much as I love the photography aspect, I feel that it is important that I explain a bit of the *lalalalalalalalalalalala* that goes on in my mind when I capture an image and feel like it deserves a spot on my blog. I'm rollin' with it...hope you roll with me!

Without purchasing a special filter, I have wanted to capture a dreamy sun kissed image, that flares like fireworks. I have also wanted to capture a leaf while it is actually falling. Like, seriously, I have to have a tree that sheds, a breeze and enough light to see it. Oh, and the perfect shutter speed, and focus and click--all at the same time. While patiently waiting for my leaf to drop (yes, I did wait-staring at the tree like a watched pot) I saw the sun through the leaves. I actually caught it! Here is today's shot.
With that shot under my belt, I continued to wait for a breeze and a dead leaf to find each other at the same time. I won't tell you how long I stared, but I will show the shot. Next time, I'd like to have a blue sky background instead of the pines, but, hey, I'll take what I can get these days!

I don't know what this machine is, but I loved the colors, and the juxtaposition of the new tire and the beautiful rust.
I posted some more treasures in my Flickr stream (the link on the top right) and I hope you enjoy them.

...hoping it is right around the corner! I am ready for a change.
