Autumn, I love you.

The trees have been ravishing for several weeks, but the weather...
not so much.
The last week has had some beautiful days, however, and I've finally gotten outside
 and gotten way. too. picture-happy.
This is the result. 
Stop here unless you have the fortitude to look at every single picture without dozing off.


This poor leaf.
Instead of fulfilling it's destiny and floating gently to the ground, to join the rest of it's crisping comrades,
it was impaled by a tiny branch.

This was exciting, because I have never taken pictures of train tracks before.
I have no idea why.
Because train tracks are like my best friend.
Although when I got out of the car to take these,
I holler "MAMA! What if a train comes??"

I just really don't want to get run over by a train.
Or caught in the cow-catcher.
Because then it would seem as if I was a cow.

Do they have cow-catchers on trains anymore...?

My discomfort with standing on train tracks
 may have something to do with watching Inception.

 I wandered around the college campus...
saw a guy on a unicycle...
wanted to take a picture...
chickened out.

Every time I saw a beautiful scene, I thought--"perfect background! Now I just need a person..."

People-photography is definitely what I love most.

Winter, please be brief. I can't survive without color for long.
