Day 284 - Shades of Fall


I'm guest posting a tutorial on another blog on Thursday (you will have to check back on Thursday to see whose) and the theme I am guest posting for is leaves. Here in SoCal fall colors are not as easy to come by as in other parts of the country. We have sporadic trees here and there sprinkled with fall colors but you have to search them out. So in order to be able to get my post done in time (I am a bit of a procrastinator) I went in search of a pretty leaf I could take a picture of. Across the street from where we live is one tree that had a few fall colors on it so I drove over there and found a few leaves on the ground that had some pretty shades to them. This one was my fave.

Speaking of guest posting, I did a post over at Amber's Articles today called I Stand Upon What Never Changes. Be sure to stop by her blog and check it out. I promise you will be encouraged.

the long road
