November 2012 Foo Photo Vote

The theme for November is Autumn Activities, chosen by September's winner, tuxbailey: "Autumn Activities other than Halloween costumes. Hay ride, pumpkin patch, corn maze, leaf raking, etc. Even pumpkin carving is good. Foilage should not be part of it though as I want to focus on activity."


Rules:
Theme: Autumn Activities
- You must be the photographer
- One photo per person
- Try to make the photo recent

Good luck everyone!

My Favourite Autumn Activity



Autumn is a perfect time to cycle ... often good weather and beautiful colours.



And yes, I took this photo.

It was quite a challenge. I got the idea for a self-portrait contest last autumn (May) when I wanted to do something different than the usual sit down, face the camera, and take the photo. I wanted to do something active that showed what I enjoy doing. If you click the photo, you'll be taken to a page of photos detailing my attempts to accomplish this photo, entitled 20May12_Scenes 1 - 5, with an explanation under each.

My first idea was to set up the camera, focus it on my bicycle in particular spot on the road, then have Rowan hold my bicycle down the road a little way. I would click the button, sprint to the bicycle, leap on, and cycle past the camera. It didn't take me long to realise that I'm not a sprinter!!

Then Rowan suggested that I start on my bicycle, click the button, ride up the road a few metres, pull a U-turn, and then ride past the camera ... and that was easier. It took about 20 shots, but I got one that worked, and here it is!

I love going to the pumpkin patch during october. Took my kids and they were having a great time with the other kids and this little boy was having a blast running around the pumpkins. lol.
Because of the low iso and him running around didn't make the picture as clear as I'd like it to be but oh well.


F/5, 1/100 sec and iso 100

Harvesting of cranberries is a autumn activity in Cape Cod. I didn't partake, but observed at a festival. Picture might change.

One of our favorite activities in the Fall. Cooking chili over an open fire. This is before the pot went on the tripod over that fire. Our dog "Dooley" can't help himself and loves to pose for pictures...

Vendor at "Good Day in the Country" Festival. Most of my photos were of the band performers, award winners, and crowd overview but I don't like to post photos of unrelated people...particurally without a model release.

Do what I do when there are "seasonal" topics ... dig up something 6 months old.

Post Spring/Summer pictures to make all the snowbound jealous. Oh, and for correct orientation be sure to turn them upside down.

This is from my early fall visit up to Northern Michigan. Sorry for the somewhat poor quality.
