A leafy abstract with maple leaves gathered from my front yard, carefully woven together for contrast and coverage, in beautiful sherbet colors that I would never have associated with fall.

This is one of the wallpaper images available for high-res download on my company's website.  I'm trying to create a nice variety of backgrounds for our solitaire games, but they also work as desktop backgrounds, so feel free to download, even if you don't play solitaire. (tho you definitely should 😉

I could not believe how gorgeous these leaves were.  Real, beautiful, purple fall leaves! 

It probably looked a bit strange when I pulled up to the curb, opened the door and proceeded to pick through the leaves on the ground, pulling a handful of the prettiest ones into the car before driving away.  Many of the things photographers do look strange.  But wow!  These are just too cool!  Maybe next time I can get some fresher ones and press them.  What do people do with pressed leaves?  There must be some artsy thing you can do with them.

I liked the bokeh in this shot, which reminded me of a cluster of grapes.
