Plate Full of Autumn
Anthony & Fumie, Fall 2008

One day last fall, Anthony came back from playing in the park with Fumie, carrying a hand full of stuff he'd found lying around the park. Fumie dumped it into a shallow bowl and sat it on a little table in the living room in front of a sun-facing window.

All season it sat there, and I loved it. I hope they do it again this year.

(If I had any guts, I'd try some of the amazing abstract-nature-macro photography that Dan Sroka makes look so easy and natural. Luckily I don't have a macro lens, so I don't need to look further for an excuse.)

What a timely post… tonight after work in the failing light, I went out to the back yard with my tripod and 100mm Macro (you should get one… really!) taking focus stacks of my sumac tree that looks like it’s on fire with bright reds and yellows. I only hope the weather holds for the weekend so I can catch it and the rest of the neighborhood in the daylight before everything turns to an ugly brown.

Simple and beautiful. I like the shadows on the dish and of course the DOF which makes the background velvety soft.

Hey, want to borrow my Zeiss 100 while I’m gone? Seriously.
