Okay, behind agaaayaan! Only 5 days this time so I feel pretty good. I'm working down backwards from today's photo to day 281.
Today was just one of those days!
I got ready for Bible study,
left the house and dropped of my daughter's forgotten extra credit homework,
went to grab some coffee and realized I'd forgotten my purse at home.
Backtracked to grab my purse,
and saw that even if I left now, I'd still be almost an hour late to Bible study,
so I decided to scrap it all and get my flat tire repaired.
That didn't work, so 1 new (used) tire for me!
And, luckilly, a pretty park nearby to just relax, reset, and try some new techniques!
I tried some panning with falling leaves, that was HARD to get right. I got close, but still not that easy to focus on that "one" falling leaf (blowing in the wind). I also did something fun I saw on Isabelle Frances Photography page. That was the twisting of the lens while taking a photo up a tree.
Still shot. I like the rustic look, and it was such a happy surprise to find the acorns all over!

Trying hard to capture ONE leaf and focus on it. Had to pan a bit, but finally got ONE image where you can somewhat tell what it is. Right? Maybe not...

Lovin' the beauty of the dying thistles beside the road.

FINALLY grasping the sunburst, thanks to my wonderful friend, Carolyn! She's fabulous in this department. So I hopped out of the car this particular morning and grabbed it through the trees. Yay!
