Stop And Smell The Roses, err..The Leaves.

While I was in an army belly crawl on my sidewalk today, two of my favorite neighbors happened upon me.

I was trying to photograph the perfect light on the leaves that have gathered on my curb. Everyone does that, right?

This was one of those times that I was grateful to be behind the camera...not in front of the camera. I'm sure that it would have wound up on Jerry Springer- "Strange Neighbor In Bizarre Tryst With Sidewalk!"

Luckily, my neighbors were very gracious. They pretended that it was completely normal to find me belly down on my sidewalk, with camera in hand, photographing fallen leaves.

This is one more confirmation that I have the best neighbors on the planet. 

Here is a peek through my lens:

Choose your neighbors wisely.

  3. Autumn makes the world look so beautiful. Great series of shots.

  4. Some beautiful Autumn shots there... It's one thing I regret - is that we don't have such vivid Autumns where I live.

  5. The things we do for a good photo! I can so relate to getting down and dirty to get the right shot. You nailed it. Your leaves are lovely!

  7. Now that I live in North Florida I'm missing the Fall colors from up North.

  8. You got some great images for your trouble. If you are like me, by now the neighbors are used to seeing you with camera taking pictures where others see nothing of interest.

  9. Lovely pics! Thanks for adding your link and sharing at Beach Cottage Good Life Wednesdays.

  10. These are beautiful shots. Love the light shining through. Wonderful colors. I'm on my belly a lot for shot. I just ignore the odd looks and my hubby just walk the other way :)
