I’m not particularly fond of seasonal themes because here, in south Florida, we don’t really have seasons. I do however, enjoy being jealous of all the beautiful photos entered for these themes.
My first idea was to say, “I’ll show them… I will photograph crayons in fall colors.” That was not quite turning out the way I wanted it to and I really wanted something a little prettier. While in the grocery store I found their fall display with lots of kinds of mini pumpkins and fake leaves. I love the unusual stripes of the 2 tiger pumpkins and the stem on the orange one. I was not in love with using the fake leaves until I opened the cellophane and realized they were real oak leaves. At first I thought they made some pretty good fakes but then my allergies kicked in hard. They were certainly real. I have to say it is just weird to buy real fall leaves from a grocery store in 85 degree weather but, here in the south, we do what we have to do. – Diane
