I love autumn (or fall). I’m pretty sure I’ve said this at least 3408320482309 times, but once more can’t hurt, right?
There is nothing better than a bit of heavy mist to start off your morning, especially when the sun burns through it for a glorious sunrise. It’s just a shame that I had to go to work, and wasn’t somewhere more scenic… Having said that unless I was getting up before dawn anyway I would have missed it, so swings and roundabouts I suppose!
Misty autumnal mornings for me are just magical, and we seem to have had lots of them over the last month. I promised myself that I would get up earlier ‘just in case’ but it never happened! Until this morning when I saw it was misty and magically managed to chuck myself around the house and be ready in 5 mins, giving me 10 mins spare to go and take a photo. I suppose it’s quite lucky that there is this patch of grass next to my house. When we were looking for houses it was a bit of a negative (maybe kids would hang around there and be drunk), but it’s turned out to be pretty useful for my photos, and over the years it’s been used as a go to place when I want an open space with trees in the background.
What did make me laugh this morning though was as I was setting up and frolicking* around a man came to walk his dogs on the field. He was stood there kind of looking at me, then I turned to do something with my camera, noticed him looking at me and he walked off – I guess his dogs didn’t need walking that badly after all 😉
*I realised last night that for some reason whenever I’m with my camera I kind of run on my tiptoes and half skip. Like a crazy lady.

I’m very fond of your self portraits, Manadh. I have two blogs, one of which is a collaborative project on self portraiture:
Would you like to share some of your work there?
I would credit you and link back to your blog. 🙂
Hello thank you very much! That is fine I’d love to be on there – what do I need to do?
You don’t really have to do anything. 🙂
Shall I choose some and let you know once they are posted?
Or would you like to choose some yourself and let me know?
I’m so pleased you’re happy to join in. 🙂
You can choose them if you want to, but I don’t mind either way. If you could let me know when they’re up that would be great! 🙂
Lovely. I’ll choose them, then. 🙂
