Autumn Self-Portraits

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.






Bare feet!


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.  🙂

    1. Thanks! The outfit came together somewaht by accident! I was a little cold that morning, so I threw the short-sleeved sweater on top of my clothes. I spent some time the day before trying to find something that I could wear that little sweater with, but couldn’t figure it out. Well, the problem practically solved itself the next day. 🙂

      1. Me too! Kt did give you a hug from me didn’t she? I told her to 😀

        I’m guessing this weekend will make up for it though…Savannah and I are going to a reenactment (undercover, as I like to say) to shoot footage for my documentary. We’re attending in period dress even though we aren’t really reenactors and we will be staying with a reenacting group. I’m terribly excited!

        1. I can’t say for sure that she did…although she may have and I just don’t remember (don’t take it personally – I have been doing that somewhat frequently).

          Have fun this weekend! Remind me – what is your documentary on again? I hope that you get the shots you need!


    1. Thank you, Gloria! I also really enjoyed the Fall colors. If you can believe it, the trees are almost completely bare now. I had this feeling that if I didn’t take the pictures that day, I wouldn’t get them. It seems I was right! The color show seems to be just about done.
