The first real rain of the season came last night, the days are getting short, and the leaves are changing, so I guess I can say Fall has come. Northern California doesn’t get the dramatic colors like other parts of the country during the Fall, but there are enough non-native trees and plants to give some bright colors. I’ve been thinking of doing a series of photos on a particular subject, and decided today to do a Fall Series. It’s not the most original idea, but it gives me something to focus on.
I’ve struggled lately with finding good subjects and thought a series would help inspire me. I’ve been running through ideas, but nothing has really jumped out at me. Fall colors don’t last long, which means my first series will have a definite end, and soon. It will sort of force me outside to take pictures, and force me to try to be a little creative with the limited subject matter.
This wall is on a street I don’t normally drive on, but construction forced me onto side streets. The colors and textures jumped out at me so I stopped and took a bunch pictures. Most days I have to struggle to find a good picture to post, but today I took several that I liked for various reasons. The vines growing on the wall had such a variety of colors and were growing in such cool patterns that I couldn’t pass it by. In a couple of days it will look different. This series will be a little challenging because I will pretty much have to take pictures as I see things. If I try to come back the colors may look very different, even the next day as temperatures drop.
