muted

the autumn colors just haven't been on full display this year, like many places, due to unusual weather...and i was feeling a bit disappointed. but i spent some time visiting family in canada last week, and one day, the light was simply perfect for photos. so my sister took me out for a drive so i could take a few pictures. and you know, i just love the muted colors, too...







it turns out that one of the most beautiful, rusty old things of all was sitting right in their backyard. this is an old truck from my bil's side of the family. shades of light blue...


shades of green...and black

(shades of bonnie and clyde!!!)

rusty and rather despondent, left sitting...forgotten


i'm just sure there'd be some good stories if only this old mercury could talk


isn't she lovely?

Love the soft colors of each of these photos. Such a wonderful feel to them all.

I'm catching up with postings after spending three days in bed with a nasty cold that turned to asthma issues. Just getting back up to my old self and have missed all of my blogging friends. Hope to be caught soon and back to posting on my own blog. Hugs to you. Sea Witch

Love the photos of the "natural" side of fall and the season. That wheelbarrow is my absolute favorite!

Mary, love your photos. Our fall weather has been pretty crappy too, so it's been difficult to get out and get some decent photos. That old truck is lovely. Thanks for sharing!
