…a close look at every day objects
I love textures and the closer you get to plant material you can find some very interesting textures from fluffy to spiky. Todays photos feature a spiky seed pod and a Queen Anne’s Lace flower in its final stage. The flower gets stranger looking as it goes through its metamorphosis. My husband thought it actually looked creepy. I guess if you don’t know what it is, it does look like something is crawling out of it.

….. summer left by the back door
It seems like yesterday when we were experiencing warm sunny days. I was still wearing my sandals to work and by noon sweaters and jackets were abandoned because of warm temperatures.
Today, cold winds and grey skies firmly established that summer is no more and that winter is not far behind. On our daily walk we now step over smashed walnuts and chestnuts and push through multi-coloured fallen leaves. The dog’s tail is picking up burrs and she’s finding the most disgusting things to roll in.
It’s the colours of autumn that I am enchanted with. The red of the sumac leaves against purple wild flowers and fading green to yellow grasses excites my senses and makes me want to get out my paints and play with colour washes.
Today, on our walk, I purposely looked for colours from foliage not often photographed when one thinks of autumn. The soft textures of tall grasses and milkweed pods to the spiky thorns of burrs and seed pods is like a magnet for my imagination and camera lens.
