Parthenon in Fall

Parthenon Nashville

Lightdance, October 30, 2011

It was a gorgeous, and cold!, fall day in Centennial Park, where we went yesterday for the ALS walk. Everything was brighter and warmer if you stayed in the sun, like the red maple leaves that made a nice frame for the Parthenon.

I’m going to frame this photo of the red maple today to take to my DIL for her office. The brand new Five Points Animal Hospital in East Nashville is booking appointments for Tuesday, November 1, 2011! There will be a small open house (the official one will be later in November) Saturday morning for people to stop by to meet the staff and tour the new clinic. Hooray! A hundred hoorays!

Autumn Tunnel

Camera motion blur

Sometimes I can’t stop myself from twisting the camera while I press the shutter release. This time it was the combined, brightly colored dogwood and maple leaves that inspired me.

Unsuccessful attempt at a motion blur.

There was too much light coming into the camera on my first attempt, so I dialed the shutter speed back so that it wouldn’t stay open as long.  It usually takes some practice shots while you adjust the settings to get what you want.

Virginia Creeper looks a lot like poison ivy, if you don’t count the leaves. LIke poison ivy, it is a winter show-off.

Farewell November. You’ve put on quite a show!

Dogwood in Winter

This photo was taken at Radnor about a week ago. Yesterday the Dogwood leaves were gone – just like November. Enjoy the few hours that are left before December is here.

I took the Lensbaby with me last week to Radnor for a little different perspective on things.
