"Of Yellow Leaves and Gossamer"

Well, one of my New Year’s Resolutions to take better pictures is off to a decent start.  I decided to try shooting with a lower aperture and taking lots of shots.  I ended up with quite a few that came out horribly, but I got a few gems.  After adjusting the exposure and contrast, I ended up with some images that I’m pretty happy with.

I’ve also found a better solution for post titles.  Goodreads has a quote search feature which is pretty handy, so I can search for keywords related to my post and then find appropriate quotes to go with them.  This is much easier than what I was doing before, which was trying to keep a word doc of quotes from books I was reading.

And may I take a moment to lament the fact that Morelle closed her shop?  I know it’s been months, but I still feel at a loss when considering getting a new purse that isn’t from her shop.    Over half of my bags come from her shop.

    Wow, these are such beautiful pictures! I’m always struck with the seasonal differences between Florida and Chicago when I read your blog…there are definitely no changing leaves here anymore!

    And I’m SO sad that Morelle closed her shop! I always lust after your bags of hers, and had been saving up/justifying a purchase for awhile, now only to find that she’s gone! 😦
