Color

These pictures were snapped during a visit to Virginia to see my parents--their backyard has the prettiest autumn color I've seen this fall. Characters in a film a couple of years ago kept asking each other, "have you gone to see the color?" What they were refering to was people leaving the city to go see the changing fall scenery somewhere. I really like that idea though; taking a trip, an intentional drive just to seek out the prettiest scenery you can find. It seems like it would be a good investment of your time, provided you do have the free time for a brief road trip. Of course some people like my parents just have to look out their back windows...

Really cute fall outfit Rebecca! I hope your parents are doing well after Hurricane Sandy. I know that Virginia was one of the States that was hit hard by the Hurricane. Just curious when are you going to pair your saddle shoes with white knee socks or white tights? I think it would look so cute!!

There's a funny Family Guy episode all about the "Leafers." I tried to do a scenic drive with the hubby this year, but we ended up seeing a lot of empty branches :(

Yeah, the leaves were gorgeous this year! They still are, but a lot got knocked down during the hurricane of course, and it's cold enough that they're fading now. I did (another) post on them today too! :)

@Anonymous, thankfully my parents (and my housemates in PA) didn't see much of the storm in their region.
I don't have white knee socks, but I do have white tights. If I have the appropriate outfit this winter I'll definitely try that combination out; I want to wear more "winter white."

Rebecca, do you just manual focus your camera to get these effects and then set it on the tripod? Sorry I would just like some tips lol

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse said...

@clarisse, your camera is on the tripod and you choose where to set it--here it is placed with some leaves very close to the lens. Then I focus it, usually using my purse on the ground where I intend to stand. Then I actually turn the focus off just in case things shift a bit b/c it could re-focus itself on the wrong thing. Then I push the button to take a picture (self-timer is on) and trot over to that spot, either picking up my purse or pushing it out of the frame. Done. Does that help?
