I didn't miss all of the leaves this year...
You know, I'm no photographer (though my dad was an excellent one and my mom is handy with a camera as well) but I find that if you use the 16:9 setting your pictures suddenly look really classy and important! These looked pretty drab in the regular view, but the ol' widescreen makes it look rather impressive I think, even on my cheap camera.
Ah! How pretty! This is at one of my favorite little parks.
You can also see my other great photographic trick in the second to last one: "hold the camera at a slight angle" - ooh ahh, instant art!
