A different look at autumn colours
Welcome to this week’s wrap-up post
The theme for Week 41/52: Autumn
This week was all about Autumn, or Spring for our UK member of the group. If you’ve been following me on Instagram (come join me!) you’ll have seen a lot of Autumn shots already with the colourful leaves, the lovely light and the odd self portrait. It’s true to say I love autumn and I think we are kindred spirits as I mentioned in Week 39’s self portrait post.
So this week I tried to look at autumn in a different way. I love this scarf I bought on my last trip to the UK and the colours are just perfect for me. As we were showing visitors around our area for a few days I decided to take my scarf along as a prop and try my hand at being creative.
In the Sugar Pine Walk amongst the big old pine trees and the amazing atmosphere, I had my mother float the scarf behind her, then my husband secured it to a tree and tried to hoist it like a flag, then he held onto one edge and sort of tossed it out to drop ‘dramatically‘. I liked the illusion of it floating in the breeze except there wasn’t much breeze about!! I decided this shot was as good as I was going to get and after cropping my husband’s shadow out I sent it in with these words.
A different look at autumn with a few of my favourite things – my favourite autumn colours in a favourite scarf taken in one of my favourite places in my favourite season with some of my favourite people visiting. Autumn is awesome.
Photos from the group
The photos from the others in the group were great this week!!!
Here’s a summary (in my words) – you really need to click the link to read their words as well as see their photos for yourself! We always appreciate hearing your thoughts 🙂
Daniel’s shot was the beautiful night sky in Brisbane – honestly it could be used in a tourist advertisement.
Grant’s photo was a great capture of the vista luring them into the mountains on an early morning walk. Really quite eerily beautiful.
Melanie’s photo was a drop of water in the forest which she said could be fairy wee 🙂
Sharon says that autumns means pears to her….and leaves. I can assure you these poached pears were delicious.
Tim’s photo matched his shoes to the autumn leaves. Fashion at its best!
You can read more about the story behind the project here: 52 week photography project – but basically I have joined with 5 photographers, of varying experience, to take a photo every week for a year, one theme at a time. That’s 52 weeks of photos!
Autumn colours are the best!
With each photo we also submit some accompanying words, which can be just as interesting as the photo itself some weeks! This can include the subject, the setup, the story behind it and even the process we have used to get our photo for the week. It’s certainly extending my creative thought processes!
How did you like our interpretations this week? Let me know as I always appreciate hearing from you.
I tend to share my wrap-up post on the Saturday after the main post goes live on Sundays. It’s so good to be involved in something creative and gets the mind ticking over.
Are you into being creative?
Feel free to pin for later:
Next week’s theme is: From the hip – no peeking at the viewfinder as we take a shot :0
Enjoy your week ahead.
Let’s stay in touch. You can also find Deb’s World here:
