November - Come and Almost Gone

I've always liked November since it is my birth month. I have not done as much photography this month as I would have liked.

I kept looking at the fall colors saying ... I'll catch that tomorrow. I missed a few things waiting until tomorrow.

The tree in front of our house was an incredible color yellow this year. And just across the street was a beautiful red-orange tree. I kept trying to figure out how to capture both colors in one shot. Luckily I did shoot this before the leaves were rained and blown away.

Skip ahead to Thanksgiving weekend. Charles' parents were visiting and I have been promising to take a portrait of them. And I was doubly inspired since we went to see the Ansel Adams and Annie Liebowitz exhibits at the Corcoran Gallery of Art on the day after Thanksgiving.

And time for my annual holiday shots of our friends' kids - twin 5 year old boys. I asked if they knew how to make fish faces. They did.

Since I hadn't used my lights in a while, rearranged some things in the studio, and was going to take some portraits, I tried to get Ivan to do some posing for me. He only cooperates so much.

Cross a place off of my list ...

I'll soon be able to cross a new place off of my list of places to go and take pictures ... DEATH VALLEY.

I signed up for a week long February 2008 photography workshop in Death Valley today given by two photographers, John Barclay and Dan Sniffin. Just from my interaction with them both today over email, I know that they are great guys ... and their work is beautiful.
