Yesterday, we went on a road trip, which explains my lack of posting. Well. We just went to Ann Arbor, but we were out and about all day. I forgot to even take a whole bunch of photos, although I have pictures of some of my favorite fields. I remember to do that because I'm sitting in a car, with nothing to occupy my hands.
Plus, on our way back, storm clouds rolled in, but the sun broke through from the west, on it's way out of town, and lit everything up. The golden hour. And in the golden season of yellow leaves and yellow cornfields. Golden all around, set off by the gray motion of clouds.
I have the idea to have a whole suite of these photos. A traveling of the year kind of thing. Maybe blow them up a bit and have four on a wall. Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. I got here in December, so I'm almost all the way. Actually, I don't know how I would limit it to only four photos. I don't know. That project is still on the horizon. Plus, I hope my camera is good enough to take pictures that can blow up well.
I'm starting to save for a DSLR, I think. Good enough for my hobbyist status, and for taking blog and shop pictures.
Also, on our day trip, we stopped for lunch at our favorite pizza place that reminds us of old New York City. Gabriel hates pizza (I know! The sacrilege!) so he has plain wings.
Ivy however is a girl after her mama's heart. She loves her some pepperoni.
And we went thrift shopping and got some stuff for Halloween and all sorts of stuff.
All in all a fun day, although not much of my work was done. Oh well. This is life and we have to get the living in with all the work.
By the way. I wanted to toss a picture in of Grandma's house, here.
Look at that tree. It really looks like that. Kind of glowy. The leaves on the inside are yellow, fading to orange, to that bright red on the outside, so the tree itself is luminescent. AWE. SOME.
I wonder if Grandma bought the car to match that tree, because they are the exact same pumpkin red shade.
I tell ya, Michigan sure does have some pretty Fall foliage. Almost too pretty to actually capture in pictures.
