I know it is spring, but just had to share these from the fall of 2006. There are certain things that I personally like in a photograph. I had rather the post be on the right side in this photograph...I like things to lead into the photo from right to left. When I take pictures of my husbands knives, I much prefer the handle to be on the left with the blade towards the right.

That being said, I still like this photo and this is the way nature did it so I will be satisfied with that. I always think it is sort of ironic just how beautiful poison ivy becomes in the fall! And sometimes I almost only have to look at it to get it! There was one period in my life when I wasn't allergic to it, then it came back with a vengeance and I try to stay out of it at all costs, or if I get in it, I go wash off with cold water as soon as possible.

It's interesting how something that causes so many problems can still be that beautiful.

Autumn photos are my favorites...although I'm really liking winter ones right now!

Neat pictures.. it is good you have standards to how you want your pictures.. I try at times to do something similar and then forget and press away.
I have not see Poison Ivy like this before... the colours of fall do make it an inviting plant to take pictures of as well as touch...

Lovely! Can't believe I just said that about poison ivy. :)

Just to clarify, the bottom picture is the one with poison ivy...the top pic is a dogwood leaf.
