happy halloween

so, as much as i love landscapes and pretty leaves, i’m ready to take some pics of people. thank goodness i’m going out tomorrow with a friend from high school to do just that! it’s supposed to be overcast, but as long as it doesn’t rain on us i’ll be perfectly happy. in the meantime, here are more shots of leaves… i suppose the fact that they’re incredibly pretty, bright orange leaves makes them perfect for halloween – especially since we didn’t carve a pumpkin this year. oh, and this is the same tree that’s posted on the 29th. it’s amazing what changes trees can go through in 48 hours! God is an amazing artist.

random fact – looking at these leaves has me craving orange fanta.

both my eyes

i suppose it’s kind of ironic that john mayer’s “3×5″ is one of my all-time favorite songs, but it resonates perfectly with me. recently, i’ve been wanting to go places and not worry about bringing along my camera – not because i don’t value photographs anymore or because i’m sick of photography {hasn’t happened yet}. sometimes it’s nice to just go somewhere and focus totally on the reality of where i am, the people and conversations, the scenery – without concerning myself with f-stops, iso, shutter speed, lighting, etc. sometimes in composing the “perfect photograph” {whatever that means}, i can get too caught up in technicalities and completely miss the beauty around me. sometimes a picture just isn’t enough to encompass what the eye can see.

3×5 – John Mayer

I’m writing you to catch you up on places I’ve been
You held this letter probably got excited,
But there’s nothing else inside it

Didn’t have a camera by my side this time
Hoping I would see the world with both my eyes
Maybe I will tell you all about it
When I’m in the mood
To lose my way
With words

Today skies are painted colors of a cowboy’s cliche’
And strange how clouds that look like mountains
In the sky are next to mountains anyway

Didn’t have a camera by my side this time
Hoping I would see the world with both my eyes
Maybe I will tell you all about it
When I’m in the mood
To lose my way but let me say

You should have seen that sunrise
With your own eyes
It brought me back to life
You’ll be with me next time I go outside
No more 3×5′s

Guess you had to be there
Guess you had to be with me
Today I finally overcame
Tryin’ to fit the world inside a picture frame
Maybe I will tell you all about it
When I’m in the mood
To lose my way but let me say

You should have seen that sunrise
With your own eyes
It brought me back to life
You’ll be with me next time I go outside
No more 3×5′s
Just no more 3×5′s
