Eugh, Self Portrait

This one is for the Point-Shoot-Click blog women and a belated self-portrait challenge. See, I am a "behind the scenes" sort in all art forms: photography, puppetry, french horn--nothing too "out there", if you know what I mean! I finally did cave, however, and have one really "out there" one and one "well, it is a self-portrait even if it is my shadow" to offer. Now, back to my lenses, puppetry curtains and rows of violins respectively. I would take a bow but head-to-monitor would have to be followed by Tylenol. Enjoy!

It's Fall...Almost!

The trees think it is fall even if the temperature hasn't figured it out yet. It has been in the 20s (that's 70s for the Fahrenheit'ers) for more than a week now; summer weather. I know in a week or two when the air has gone crisp I will want this weather back, but for now I am enjoying shooting the colour celebration that fall has always been here. Every year the colours are a little different, more yellow some years, more red another. We will see what this year has to show!
