I went to shoot some photos of a friends band tonight. I learned that f1.4 and ISO 6400 are no match for pitch black. I told him I didn't need broad daylight, but when he asked for me to shoot them after nightfall in a darkened bar, I thought he was joking. I've had to delete a LOT, but there's some I can salvage. I may do a separate post to share a bunch if I can make enough of them work. Here's one beneath a security light behind the theater....

Small-town Americana: it's the Harvest Festival in Talent, Oregon, an annual Parade, Pancake Breakfast and Crafts Fair where all the old farmers drive their ancient John Deere's and Farmall tractors down main street, alongside the Roller Derby Girls and the local High School Band. A lot of October colors to be seen here - including this long-in-the-tooth white Fire Truck.

Interesting, isn't it? I sense the month of october through these colours!!
We had a crisp and beautiful evening with sounds of birds and fish jumping out of the water.
Peter, you really captured the atmosphere there!
Great POV! I extolled down (don't you just love auticorrect?) SCROLLED down to this, stared at it, marvelling at the exotic tree, and slowly it dawned on me - is some allium? I scrolled a little further, and there was my answer!
I thinks it's either a leek which has bolted, or an onion. So I'm calling it an allium plant to cover all bases.
Sunrise through the trees on the lawn (that needs mowing), with a bit of cold dew, that looks to be nearly frost! A bit of heavy PP, that I just could not get "right".
And a B&W of it.
On the 8th of October, I stopped by the trees along Memorial Drive at Harvard, on my way to work.
Good stuff all!
I've had to drop out a few days, difficult photo days here - this is about all the colour I have going.
And yes, both the post and sign are crooked.
A pint of Autumn Ale. Cheers!

Autumn Ale.....damn that looks good. Guess it's time to head down to the local brew-pub (a cottage industry across much of Oregon) to sample their October wares.
