My favorite season
Fall is my favorite time of year, and Halloween is my favorite day (it’s also my birthday, which is probably part of the reason why). Today I went out in search of autumn color and texture at my local farm stand, Carrigan Farms in Mooresville, NC.
Vivid oranges, blues, yellows, purples and reds in pumpkins and gourds to make your soul sing:
I take a lot of photos year round. These photo shoots provide fodder for my work. A shot of mini-pumpkins I took several years ago was the idea behind this piece, “Autumn’s Bounty,” which won a spot in the 2010 Quilting Arts Calendar (they used it for October, of course!):
And this piece, “Indian Corn,” is also based on a photo:
Now’s the perfect time to shoot pumpkins, jack-o-lanterns, gourds, leaves, cute kids in Halloween costumes, and fall foliage, so don’t miss this opportunity to snap photos to inspire projects in the months ahead!
