I had no idea when I got out of bed this morning what I would be able to come up with for the November Photo a Day today. I was hoping it would snow or rain. The wind has been blowing for 24 hours straight, which usually means a storm is on its way.
Alas, all was clear.
But I noticed the wind had pulled most of the leaves off the trees. So as per suggested, I waited for the sun to come up and took some pictures of our neighbors tree.
Imagine if you will, my large self in a pair of bright yellow Sponge Bob Square Pants pajamas and fuchsia tennis shoes, a camera slung about my neck, taking pictures of a tree while school children walk by on their way to class.
But the light was wonderful and I ended up taking so many good photos I decided to post more than one. Feel free to tell me which one you think I should call my “official” photo of the day for November 3.
My son followed me out, and he was wearing a bright orange coat, so I had him pose against the tree because I love the contrast of his soft skin against the rough bark.
I have also been challenged to take a picture of a child eating today. But all the youngsters are gone to school now, so I will try to take some shots of food consumption after school.
