You Capture: Flowers

September 23, 2010
This week’s You Capture theme is flowers. Since the intent of You Capture is to take a fresh picture, I decided to take a picture of the mums we bought just the other day.  This is one of the same photos I submitted for Faith’s SLR Class on ISO. All I need now is a pumpkin, some pumpkin pancakes and a pumpkin spice latte to make it really feel like autumn! For more flower photos, go to:  Have a great

I decided that I would do just that when I saw that this week’s You Capture challenge was “In the Kitchen.” The basic premise is that you’ll confine yourself to one room and take as many pictures as possible in that room – you’ll be forced to shoot from new angles and perspectives. When we got engaged, we put a Tassimo coffee maker on our registry. Along with it, we put several packages of coffee and the coffee disc carousel on the registry....
