Monochrome Monday

Saw this idea on Nydia's blog and I'm going to try it out, along with ABC Wednesdays. I like having an assignment for looking at the world in a certain way. Today on the way home from Emrys' therapy, there were so many ooohs and ahhhs by the kids and myself at the stunning foliage. Some of the trees we saw were impossibly golden yellow, as if Nature had been cheating with some storebought synthetic colors. When we stopped to get the mail at the post office I snapped these pictures, thinking they'd be great for my first (seasonal!) monochrome monday.

Here's Emrys, a few minutes later. We rolled down all the windows so it was very windy as we drove the few miles to home, and all the kids were laughing like crazy and singing Aretha's "R.E.S.P.E.C.T." at the tops of their voices. A nice memory to have. :)

I'm happy that you're giving these cool memes a try, they're really worthy it!

Emrys looks absolutely cute in this photo laughing like that! So sweet! You're right, this burst of autumn leaves are marvellous!

Kisses from Nydia.
