Have been thinking about fall and looking forward to seeing some color in the leaves next week. Today is the day that I had planned to leave for Italy, however, sadly, that did not work out for this time.... but am planning to have a little fun in spite of this. This coming week, am going to fly to Chicago, meet up with my cousin, and head up to DOOR COUNTY in WISCONSIN. This is such a gorgeous place, and it should be the very peak of their fall season. Am totally looking forward to getting some amazing shots of Lake Michigan, and the beautiful season of harvest there. This will only be my second trip to this amazing place, and am really looking forward to it!
Then, as soon as I come back from there, am going to go to to Arkansas to enjoy the War Eagle fall craft festival. Really looking forward to seeing some fall weather, as the weather is still warm in Texas,with no fall color as yet. Was looking at this old framed picture of the man sitting in front of his cabin with the rising moon in the back. This is a picture ( I think it was originally in the Chicago Tribune many years ago). My father framed it, and i remember it even as a little girl. It sat by my fathers beside stand, and I think it represented his dream of a cabin on the lake. This really feels like a fall shot to me, and I always feel very nostalgic when I look at this. I love the fall, and smoke coming from the chimney of my cabin... so perhaps I am living my father's dream. I really think that we often do , subconsciously, live out the dreams of our parents. What do you think/? Hope that all of you are anticipating a wonderful fall weekend whereever you are. Can't wait to get to Door county next week and see a bit of FALL.
