Thursday was a beautiful day – in the morning the sun was out, but in the afternoon the clouds rolled in. There was a brisk breeze and it was just a bit nippy. The weather plainly said “Autumn.”
It was the perfect day for some self-portraits. I headed out with my camera and got a few shots. I only spent about 45 minutes out there, which, although it sounds like a lot, isn’t that long. My first self-portrait shoot took about, oh, an hour, maybe a bit less. My second self-portrait shoot took probably 2+ hours. Which was very, very fun.
Anyways, there are not all that many different shots, so this post won’t be too terribly long (although I don’t need to tell you that, since you will find that out in a few seconds).
So, without further ado, here they are.
(Breaking news alert: I just went and selected all my photos, and there will be more than I originally thought. Many more. Just thought you would like a heads up.)
This spot is right in the front yard, and I could see it from the window. It called my name all day, “Come. You need to take some self-portraits right here.” So I listened.
Throwing leaves. Yay!
I love this fence! You may remember it from this picture. This lovely tree has a few branches that bend over the fence. This was another spot that was calling my name.
At the edge of our property, standing on the road, looking up – the lovely orange and red of the maple and oak trees, respectively.
See the leaves flying? The wind was blowing quite briskly.
I really like how these turned out. I underexposed them some by accident, but I am quite happy with the resulting effect.
I found this tree out in the woods behind our property. Just a perfect place!
I thought that it would be fun to jump. I ended up only proving to myself that I can’t jump gracefully. This is the only one that turned out. All the others look extremely ridiculous.
Just to prove the last point, here is an example of how the rest of my jumping shots turned out. *Sigh* Rather pathetic, and ridiculous. But they made me giggle. 🙂
