Changing Colors

I'd been waiting for a nice day to get out and photograph the changing leaves, but the weather and our schedules just didn't align this season. I knew if I kept waiting for the perfect photo op, we'd likely miss the changing colors altogether. So last weekend, I packed up my camera bag, and we headed out the door, despite the fact that it was cloudy and almost 5 pm before we got started. I don't think these are the best photos I've ever taken, but I'm glad to have a few photos to mark another beautiful October in our area.

This tendency I have to want to wait till "the timing is right" reminds me of a quote I read not so long ago by E. B. White: "A writer who waits for ideal conditions under which to work will die without putting a word on paper." How true! I need to take this advice to heart with regard to my art and illustration...and a lot of other things too.

I thought I'd share that quote here in case any of you also need reminding. I'm going to get started on a couple of things tonight that have been eating away at the back of my brain. Here's to a productive and fun weekend! :)
