Scouting for Pictures in Fall

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” – Albert Camus

For several weeks now, Adi has been observing the falling leaves and the beautiful red and yellow colors on the leaves. We both enjoy the fall beauty…but only hastly..as we rush to school and drive back and forth from activites.

Today afternoon, Adi came back from school. I surprised him by saying “The camera is all yours for 1 hour today afternoon. Look – the rain has stopped and the sun is out. Let us go photo shooting!!”.

His jaw dropped. He said “Are you serious?! Stop kidding Amma”.

We got in the car and drove around…stopping here…pausing there. We discussed how best to click a particular shot. I don’t know much about framing..but whatever I knew, I taught him.

In our part of the world (here in Northern California), Fall doesn’t bring as much beauty as in the Mid-west. However, we enjoyed the red and yellow leaves and how the vibrant colors stood out in our city.

Hope you are enjoy this Fall as much as Adi and I enjoyed scouting for Fall pictures.
