Neighborhood Autumn Glory
Saturday 10 November 2012   —   Category: Shooting
Earlier this week, on the day that I wrote about dust spots on the sensor of my Canon PowerShot S100 pocket point-and-shoot camera, I later took that very camera with me on my daily neighborhood walk. The glory of Autumn was drawing to a close, and this rare sunny day was perhaps my last opportunity of the year to photographically capture some of it.

In the previous two years, I had taken many photos during this season, as can be seen in the Autumn 2010 and Autumn 2011 photo albums. But this year, for some reason, I was less motivated. Perhaps it is the apathy of “been there, done that” — it’s hard to say for sure. But as I made my rounds of the neighborhood this day, numerous views soon grabbed my attention.

After taking a number of photos of trees at some distance away from them, the idea came to me to stand under some trees and take shots straight up into them. This is a totally different, fresh perspective of the trees we see all the time, and I think the pictures came out nice, as you can see in the photo to the right. It just makes me want to climb a tree!

I've been so busy with other things that I haven’t yet had time to put together an Albany Autumn 2012 photo album. But with this photos I took on this walk, together with all the wonderful shots I've been getting of raindrop bejeweled leaves, it promises to be a nice collection of photos once I can get around to finishing it. After having gotten all caught up with my backlog of photos a couple of months ago, I’m getting depressingly behind again. I'd better keep my nose to the grindstone and catch up again!
UPDATE: The Albany Autumn 2012 photo album is now available!

You can enjoy more Autumn glory by visiting the Autumn Leaves 2012 photo album.
