When I saw my friend Brandi Hussey was hosting another Color Palette Blog Walk, I KNEW I had to take part!! Oh how I love me some color and as I spend day after day torching my brains out... OH how I could use some color inspiration.
For my palettes, I took photos from my recent Fall Walk for the Color Walk. Clever, yes? HA! No, more like I am up to my eyeballs in work and these are the most recent photos I've taken. But, I must say nature's beautiful changing leaves make for some pretty awesome color combos... wouldn't you agree?
The second to last photo and color combination is definitely my favorite. I'll be pulling out glass rods to match those colors in the coming days, that's for sure! Thank you Brandi for hosting such a fun walk.
If you have the time, take a moment to visit the other Color Palette Blog Walkers. You are sure to see some lovely color eye candy.
If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you know we have a special fall tradition around these parts: The Fall Walk. It truly is my most favorite day of the year. I was even telling the kids on Sunday morning, when I decided it had to be Fall Walk day, that I love the Fall Walk more than Christmas. It's true!
This year, we headed down south to Dansville, NY, just about an hour away. The weather when we left was beautiful and by the time we arrived, the clouds rolled in. Oh perfectly fallish, yes? We were in and out of spritzy showers, but I didn't care. It made the moments the sun decided to shine just that much prettier. The park we strolled through is one we had never visited, Stony Brook State Park. And we will be sure to visit again. It is an absolute hidden gem of a place. It seemed there was a picturesque bridge and waterfall around every turn.
As you can imagine, I took a lot of pictures. Five hundred fifty four, but who's counting? I was able to narrow those down to 80 and from those I'll share my most favorite. It is so hard to choose!! I love them all. I hope if feel like you were right there with us...
And... there was a playground. The funnest playground I've ever been on. Yeah, the kind that is fun for kids and adults. I have never been on a see-saw like the one in the photos and I must say, I was deprived. I must have one in the backyard... I must. And as you'll see, I liked having my picture taken while balancing on one foot. Best do it while I still can, right?
If you would like to browse the full selection of Fall Walk 2011 photos, I have an entire Flickr set devoted to them! In fact, I have a set for each of the past several years. There were beautiful photos in 2010, 2009, 2008, and 2007. And I am sure if I dig through the archives I could find photos from before those too, but I'll spare you. Five years worth is plenty to see. It is amazing to me to see the kids grow in an instant with the years seen consecutively.
