I am so excited for Fall 2017. It is going to be magnificent! Mostly because of the change in the air and the leaves, and the wonderful fact that I am swamped with shoots! That is super rad to me as I really like what I do, which is Photography!
The leaves are changing. It is September 26th and it is mostly green in Oklahoma. We just had a week of 90-something degree weather and now it is 70 degrees, cloudy, drizzly, and the leaves have hints of gold, bronze, and muddy brown. It is no Michigan Fall, but it is a beautiful season none the less. Orange mums bloom and jolly pumpkins sit around store fronts and houses. Sweaters came out today and soon it will be boots and gloves and scarves and hats. The days will be shorter and the nights colder. Windows will certainly open at our house. It's good to let a little stale air out and fresh air in. I just love the fresh air, the breeze, the rustle sounds, the smell of rain and leaves. The sight of the stars and moon and first morning light. You just don't feel hear smell those things from inside. Don't get me wrong I also love the sound of music and the smell of what's cooking on the stove and the cool AC on a hot day. But I love the outdoors, and I cannot wait to see how the environment changes here in Oklahoma.
Also really hoping we get a freezing cold winter to help kill the fleas, ticks, mosquitos in Oklahoma!!!!!!!
We are going camping in less than a month! Really looking forward to it as it is probably the last camping trip of the year! And the leaves should be sweet. Hopefully there will be a crystal clear, blue sky day with bushy auburn Oaks blanketing the rolling hills as you travel south through the heart of Oklahoma. Zack and I also talk a lot about going to Mt. Scott again, which is so gorgeous in it's own dry desert hills kind of way. I am so excited because I love taking new pictures and we are going to go to these places and hike and bike and take some sunset photos. I love Photography. I don't know how I got here sometimes, but I Thank God for giving me a gift as such good eyesight, I mean having two eyes that have 20/20 vision. It's something I do not take for granted and often think about how life would change completely, not necessarily for the worse, if I did not have the blessing of good eye sight. Now that I say that my eyesight will probably start to get worse. But I think looking through a view finder is better than looking at a computer screen so much. I should try to go back to film. Build a Darkroom, buy a Medium Format Camera, have a studio in the woods. I'm just tumbling deep into a rabbit hole now.
Anyways super excited for FALL!
