While I was looking out of the kitchen window doing the dishes, I saw how the sun lit up the remaining yellow leaves and the ground. However, since it took me quite a bit of time to prepare my baby for a stay outdoors, the light in the areas where I wanted to take pictures was gone.
It was chillier than (I) expected and the wind was blowing. It was not the best time to take photos to start with. Moreover, on our backyard, there was hardly any interesting thing left. Oh, there were still a few yellow leaves in the trees – thankfully, in areas that I could reach! 😉 . There was the grass, unmowed and littered with brown leaves. The plants have turned brown, their stems reduced to shriveled sticks. I took pictures anyway – just for the fun of it, just to see what I’d get. Well, with a little child tugging on my legs and pulling on my subjects (gasp!), picture taking just got a little more exciting.
I bribed him with toys from the tool shed so that I could have some moments to concentrate on what I was doing. We stayed in the backyard until my fingers got chilly and the camera too cold.
Here are what I got from that day out. I turned most of them to sepia – they were mostly brown to begin with anyway. It mirrors my feelings about autumn – sadness and decay – which is ironic considering that these photos were for a FUN challenge. 🙂 Oh well.
Happy good night or good day wherever you may be.
