taking notice

Trying out a new lens this past week.
Loving the softness of it.  It's a different look for me, but so far I'm happy with it.
Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving.  I had a wonderful time with my family.
Such a special day to give thanks for all of our blessings.
The day before Thanksgiving after we'd been thrift shopping and baking (and eating),
I stepped outside with my camera for just a few minutes.
This is what I saw...
This shrub is so pretty this time of year with it's leaves and berries all bright and showy.
 love the blur in this one...
 
Would you just look at these fall colors!
 My Japanese Maple is about to shed it's leaves but right now it's perfect in red and purple!
 I'm especially drawn to the faded, crunchy ones...
 I feel another crepe myrtle artwork coming on...
Last year I photographed my crepes and then made an oil pastel drawing from it.
I just love the patterns in nature!
Walk around your yard, the park, or get out in nature somewhere...  
I'm always amazed at what details I see in nature.
Oh, and in case you want to see what I found while thrifting,
here's a pic...
Beyond the moon about that little heart doily.
And all that pink glass is pretty fantastic!
Happy Day, friends!
