Celebrating Fall Colors


Inspiration Avenue is all into fall, and so this week's theme is "Celebrating fall colors of orange, yellow and brown". Oh bliss. May I add a little bit of green as well, please.


A couple weeks ago Jo and I went to the National Heirloom Expo here in town. It was a feast for the eyes, the nose and yes, if we had eaten there, the tasting buds. There was one building at the expo that was dedicated to pumpkins and gourds - at least so it seemed when you entered the building.





The heart of the expo certainly was this pyramid of gourds, squash and pumpkins:


But when you walked around this building - and we did go into every little corner of it - you saw other things apart from pumpkins and gourds that showed the glory of autumn - all heirloom, of course.



Flowers were all over the place as well - and they fit perfectly the color scheme of orange, yellow and brown.

I love the vibrance of autumnal colours - and that pyramid is spectacular.

orange is not one of my favorite colors, but your photos sure make it look good!

Wunderschöne Herbst-Eindrücke, liebe Carola. Das erste Foto mit den runden Kürbissen und den Rädern ist phantastisch, aber auch die Pyramide aus Kürbissen. Ich wünsche Dir einen sonnigen Sonntag.
Viele grüße Synnöve

I love your many perspectives here! We are going to the pumpkin patch on Saturday and you have inspired me to experiment with camera angle before pressing the shutter.

What a happy autumn collection! I like them all, but if I had to pick a fave, it would be the beautiful closeup of the stem. The colors just make me smile!

You did so well with these photos. I think my fave is #2 due to your creative use of selective depth of field.

We think of ourselves as the pumpkin capitol here in Half Moon Bay and this makes me want to go take some pix! I actually love the middle (non pumpkin ones) best.
