50 With A 50 – Week 40

Week 40, 10 to go but I think I’m still behind because Google tells me that this is week 42 of the year? Somehow I lost 2 weeks. I am posting a week behind so I should be posting week 41 this week. Good thing I have two photos taken over the last week or so that I want to post and it is my #50WithA50 so I can cheat a little 🙂 The goal is to get out taking photos and I’ve already taken more photos this year than any year since 2011. In fact I’ve taken more photos than 2018 and 2017 combined and I have a shot of it being my most productive year ever. So goal achieved with my #50WithA50.

Back to this photo. I went for a walk in a wooded area and came across a little stream clogged with leaves. The sun was peeking through the branches and in some places when it hit leaves on the ground or in the stream there was a beautiful golden glow.

Halloween Pumpkins



We went to Pumpkin Fest a couple of weekends ago. I hoped to get some nice pumpkin photos with Molly but she is in her stubborn toddler phase and the event was too crowded to get clear shots. I did get some nice shots of the pumpkins themselves which were laid out in large blocks for people to select and buy. This one was my favorite from the day. A shallow depth of field but I preferred it to the ones that had more of the pumpkins in focus. With Halloween coming up next weekend I thought it might be nice to darken it a little and post it.
