Shades of Fall Past

There is a secret glen in a beautifully overgrown field in New Hampshire - it is filled with dozens and dozens of birdhouses. Small, large, simple, ornate, hotels, condos, cottages, barns, mansions, townhouses - each is an absolute treasure. Time was short, and I was only able to shoot a few of them. Many mimic the much larger "human" barn that was down the road, and I suspect the birds love this place - so many choices for where to live! I want to go back and spend hours here...

How can this be the same flower?

Every couple of weeks I've been getting flowers to photograph. Two weeks ago I got some lovely fuschia-colored peonies. This was a first for me; I've been getting dahlias, hydrangeas, all kinds of mums, daisies, tulips - whatever caught my fancy. I was told the peonies would lighten a bit over time and open up quite a bit. By today, they were dropping petals like crazy but larger than a good sized saucer and faded to a lovely creamy white. I've never seen a flower change color like this - the photo on the top was from two weeks ago, and on the bottom was the same flower earlier today. Absolutely amazing.

Great vintage + a touch of modern = fantastic!



Black and white just seemed like the right treatment for these photos - except for that poppin' red one! Thanks again Suzanne, we're glad you had as good a time as we had.

Some fun old stuff...

Rusted, peeling, vintage, antique, distressed, steampunk, textured, well worn, OLD....whatever name you want to call it by, I just love it all - don't you?
