Fall in the Neighborhood1 min read time

“When young photographers ask me what they should do, I always tell them to stay close to home.”

-Annie Leibovitz

I have had the opportunity to take a couple of day trips to enjoy fall colors, but I have spent most of my time

exploring in my own neighborhood.  The benefits of photographing near home include:  saving on gas money, , less wear and tear on my car, getting in my steps, and watching as things change daily.

After ten months of retirement, I am finally settling into a rhythm.  After living a particular life for 33 1/2 years, it is extremely unsettling when that part of your life ends.  It has taken me time to process my new life.  My camera has been a huge help along the way.

Each morning I take an hour or longer walk with my camera.  While taking these walks I have enjoyed witnessing the changes of the fall leaves while experimenting with new techniques.

I have enjoyed taking photography classes.  The class I am currently taking is Break Free From the Rules with April Milani.  I am getting much inspiration to explore from April and my fellow participants.
