You Capture – Autumn

Media_httpi370photobu_easig

This was a surprisingly difficult assignment, to find the essence of autumn without using just swaths of pics of coloured leaves.  Which I probably did.  But anyway, here goes.

We have a bunch of these plants in our garden.  I am thinking of drying some for the winter, but have no idea how to do this.

I love the look of leaves, softening the hard lines of the gutter and drain.

I don’t remember seeing these decorative vegetables when I lived in Ottawa, but I find them gorgeous.

You Capture – Technology

Media_httpi370photobu_dtsey

I took a very broad view of this week’s assignment at I Should be Folding Laundry:   technology defined as the branch of knowledge that deals with the creation and use of technical means and their interrelation with life, society, and the environment, drawing upon such subjects as industrial arts, engineering, applied science, and pure science.

I also tried to do most of it outdoors.  Here goes!

A service cover at the edge of the road.  Kind of beautiful in it’s symmetry.

I like the linear effects of the lines and shadows, and the contrast with the curved awning and sign.

Garbage and recycling bins at the Four Seasons Centre.  Aren’t they luscious?  My fellow opera-goers were wondering why I was photographing them, no doubt!

You Capture – Still Life

Media_httpi370photobu_evhvs

This week’s You Capture assignment was for a still life.  Still life in French is nature morte, or dead nature.  Cool, eh?  Well some of my shots are not dead.

These were all “found” still lives.  I didn’t do any arranging, stacking, moving, as is typical.
