you capture: fall

Is it weird to not really like taking nature photographs? Other people take them and they are beautiful and interesting and I totally appreciate that, yet somehow nature does not inspire me. I just like to document human behavior. Anyway. It's no wonder that I went outside with my camera and a vague notion that I would take some photos of plants and things for this week's You Capture theme, Autumn, but instead sorta just took photos of my kids.

Clark found a monkey bar.



Alice lost a shoe.

This next one doesn't have people in it! I have this habit of making miniature bouquets out of random crap I find growing, just to pass the time. I remember doing this even in elementary school during recess, often searching for an elusive four-leaf clover to add to the bunch. Here's the one I made yesterday. It's kind of pretty. It got weirder after I took the picture and added mushrooms.


And then we came inside and played "haunted house" under the dining room table. I'm not going to lie; this part was my favorite. I'm indoorsy like that.


As always, head over to I Should Be Folding Laundry and click through all the prettiness.

  1. I love these! I always have to have my kids in there as subjects. It's much better that way.

  2. The last one with the kids under the table is really great - it's so classic and fun and they're so cute. It kinda embodies childhood doesn't it?

  3. I think yours are incredible. I enjoy taking pictures of nature, but they never appeal to me as much as when the kids are in them.

  10. Great photos! When I was a kid, I used to make bouquets out of random crap too! I always took them inside and gave them to my mom. :) I hope Alice found her shoe!
