Late Autumn Randoms



The Good: Want to look younger for a photo? Lie down!

I recently made this selfie on a bench at Blandy.

The Random: Much of our autumn color has faded, but I still have foliage photos left to post. Below are some images I combined using PhotoCollage for Mosaic Monday and Seasons.

(Click on the image to see it larger.)


The Fun: At Opus Oaks, we saw a silo decorated with a ring of painted figures circling the structure. Students made these by posing and outlining each other and then painting in the details. (See previous post about Opus Oaks for more artwork.)

  2. They may have lost those deep colours of earlier but the trees are still beautiful in their faded glory. The silo paintings are very unusual, what a quirky place to visit.

  12. Your selfie makes me smile - are you sure that if you? (I thought you had blond hair). Love what they have done with the silo - it makes the structure a lot friendlier:)
    Thanks so much sharing your finds with ALL SEASONS! And have a lovely week.
