Before tomorrow, and my black and white project, begins, I figured I'd post the last of my favorite photos from our trip to Georgia last weekend.
I have a thing for moss. And my dad's front yard has a ton of it. But it was kind of muddy from recent rains so I didn't want to lay on the ground to take my photos - I shot them blind. Then I cropped what I thought were the best/most interesting parts.
They also have these really pretty old trees that are just covered with lichen. Does that mean the air is really fresh out there? I didn't know lichen could be so blue.
Here's a plant growing in a pot in the backyard. I should know the name of it, but I am drawing a blank. Anyone want to help me out? I have a thing for purple, though. Always have.
This is one of those pictures that just happened. Perhaps there's something in Photoshop that I could do to make it better, but I like it just the way it is. The center section of my blog is 500 pixels and so is the photo, so Typepad cuts off just a bit on the right of every photo I post from flickr. If you click on the photo to go to flickr, it looks just a bit more symmetrical with her standing between the two trees.
The colors were beautiful on the trip home. I couldn't figure out the right settings on my camera to catch them as they were. The colors were more vibrant, but the light was absolutely golden, as you can see.
Tomorrow, the look of my blog will change. In my new header for November, I have a quote from a song. If you know it, you might win a prize - details tomorrow. I hope everyone is having a happy Halloween tonight, for tomorrow is All Saints' Day.
