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.
A living garland…

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.
A mail distribution box, overgrown with shrubs.
I like the linear effects of the lines and shadows, and the contrast with the curved awning and sign.
Z’s bike. Taken with colour filtered.
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!
Emergency call station on University of Toronto
campus. Used a filter (if you couldn’t figure that out, LOL!)
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.
The last fading sighs of my geraniums
Lanscaped fire hydrant.
Spotlights at the library.
And a couple from my local 24 hour Shopper’s Drug Mart
This week’s photography exercise over at I Should Be Folding Laundry
is to capture “Red
“. Here are my attempts….I didn’t even go outside for this one!

In the dining area, a plant I picked up on a whim at the grocery store yesterday:
And by the front door, my son’s favorite mode of transportation.
