I'm finally taking time for the things I want to do.

I decided I needed to start participating in the You Capture Challenge again. Photography is something I want to get better at, and I need to take the time and practice, practice, practice!
This weeks You Capture Challenge is Autumn. I'm glad I took a few pics last week since winter encroached on our Autumn this week! I didn't get out of my neighborhood to take the pics, I just took some of the neighbors trees while the kids were out playing. Hey, at least they weren't OUR trees! I know they aren't the best, but I had fun trying a few different camera settings out.
Every time I see the tree in the first pic, I think of Fall. I don't know why, it just does. The second pic is a close up of some leaves that I found interesting. Enjoy!

That first shot looks nearly identical to my neighbor's tree!

Great shots! I love the second one with the close up of the leaves.

I love the picture of the leaves. At first glance it looks like a pile of coins! Very cool

The leaves in that second pic don't look like any I've ever seen. Amazing! And the first is simply beautiful.
