Round Robin Challenge: "ABC's Of Autumn"

"Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter."

-Carol Bishop Hipps

Autumn is my favorite time of year. It appeals to my senses, and makes me come alive! My whole body feels invigorated, and I always feel at my most creative during this time of year. I even feel a little more sexy during the autumn months, not really sure why, maybe it's because I am just more at peace, after those long, hot sultry days of summer, when my mind is unable to think clearly, due to the heat. Autumn, by contrast brings relief, and the season plays to all five of my senses. When I go out to take photos, I put all of them into what I try to accomplish with the camera. I think it makes a difference, and things seem less one deminsional.

Our friend, and fellow Robin, T.J., author of the blog, "Photo Inclusions: Every Picture Tells A Story," came up with the idea of the "ABC's Of Autumn." The idea is to post autumn-like photos, which contain a subject which begin with the first letter of your first and the first letter of your last name. How cool is that? Thank you T.J. for the fun challenge you chose for us to do this time around. :)

Carly = Carmel Apples

Elizabeth = Elvis The Pumpkin

Gordon = Gourds
