How I Like to Fall

By B.Nova - Wednesday, October 30, 2019

So October comes to a close, we are still in the heart of fall. As with many people, this time of year is my favorite. It wasn't until recently I realized I wanted a blue pumpkin. Since teal is my favorite color, I felt I needed one ASAP! And of course, when I went to the store, I immediately got inspired with more. It is unfortunate we live in a day and age that by the time August rolled around, it means it's time to start advertising for Christmas: whether holiday displays start showing up in stores, or they start playing movies counting down to Christmas, there is not much separation this time of year. I wish we had the ability to enjoy each month, each holiday without being overrun with Christmas.

So I decided to enjoy the fall season as long as possible. It is one of the most beautiful times of the year. 

So these are the decorations I ended up with:


Here I used some of my sewing pins to attach the sunflowers to the pumpkin (it's plastic). I've seen this idea around so I thought I'd give it a try. I had to be careful not to poke myself which still happened, but I still love the end result.

Since this was what I was after, I didn't want to do a whole lot to this pumpkin, so I made sure the bow stood out instead. It somewhat reminds me of Minnie Mouse.

Even though earth tones are big in the fall, I much prefer the orange and black over brown and orange. Plus those combination of colors just seem to pop more anyway.

I've been playing around with my 50mm Nikkor AF-S lens and have been have a blast! It is teaching me so much more about framing and angles of my pictures to give me the results I'm looking for. 

I found these at a steal. They were on sale along with the pumpkins at Michael's. They are bright enough that I can use them as nightlights.

Until next time!
