    No power in New Jersey. Halloween in my town was “postponed” to Friday- too many wires and trees down; too dangerous to walk around! Mother Nature!

      Really, no power?! How long were you out?

    lovely photos! The colors are vibrant and stunning. I especially liked the picture of the apples by the roadside. 🙂

    • November 2, 2011 11:05 pm

      Thank you so much. And thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    Ohhh, love the Halloween pics; Sophie’s (and Brian’s — LOL) costumes are adorable. The cat pic is so cool!

    • November 2, 2011 11:05 pm

      Thanks, Julia. I have nice subjects to shoot. That makes it easy!

    Great photos! I’d love to be in that apple orchard right now, looks so sunny and fun! Brian makes a great ladybug!

    • November 2, 2011 11:06 pm

      Thanks, Caryn. Bryan looks upset, but he’s actually pretty happy with those antennas that he made Sophie.

    ‘B’ as in beautiful! Your photos are filled with such fun and joy. Thanks for sharing these B’s they’re the ‘B’est. 😉

    • November 2, 2011 11:06 pm

      Why thank you for the ‘B’est comments!

    Gorgeous photos. I think the dandelion is my favorite. So many you could frame, though… I love your view of the world.

    • November 2, 2011 11:07 pm

      Thanks, Shary. I never thought of it as my view of the world until you said that. I like it! And I do plan to frame the dandelion photo with one of my Goodwill frames.

    You are one amazing photographer Leah; these are stunning, as usual. Thanks for sharing your gift for all of us to enjoy!

    • November 2, 2011 11:07 pm

      Thank you, Susan. I always appreciate your kind words.

    Leah – what fun, beautiful pictures! Such a delicious slice of fall! *sigh* Honey Bunny and I LOVE Julian, CA. They make the best pies…..such a delightful town!

    Happy Halloween!

    • November 2, 2011 11:08 pm

      Thanks, Ann. I love Julian and their pies too. We may make another trip up there closer to Thanksgiving and pick up a few for the big feast.

  9. October 31, 2011 9:15 am

    Beautiful pictures! Autumn is really here.


    • November 2, 2011 11:08 pm

      Thank you so much, Juliet. I love autumn and it’s beauty — my favorite season!

  10. October 31, 2011 9:26 am

    Gorgeous pics and great photography. Those apples look ready to bite into, the pumpkins make me crave so many things and I just love the handprint art. What a great October collection.

    • November 2, 2011 11:09 pm

      Thank you, Claire. The handprint art is definitely a keeper. Now if only my husband would wash the paint off the sliding glass door…

    What gorgeous photos!!!!!!!!!! I don’t have enough of these: !!!! to adequately express the gorgeousness!

    • November 2, 2011 11:10 pm

      Thank you, Theresa. That is so nice of you to say. Truly means a lot coming from you.

  12. October 31, 2011 10:14 am

    Brian does not look happy! Why?!?, He looks great as a lady bug!!

    • November 2, 2011 11:10 pm

      It’s all an act really. He’s quite proud of those ladybug antennas because he made them for Sophie.

  13. October 31, 2011 10:17 am

    Gorgeous photos! What a cute little lady bug!

    • November 2, 2011 11:10 pm

      Thanks, Michelle. Yes, she does make a cut little bug, doesn’t she? 🙂

  14. October 31, 2011 1:39 pm

    Beautiful pictures,Leah; I especially loved the one of your hubby with the ladybug headpiece. Keep stored for future blackmail! ; )

    • November 2, 2011 11:11 pm

      Thanks, Jolina! He asked why I didn’t put a funnier picture of him up. But I like that one. It speaks volumes.

  15. October 31, 2011 3:34 pm

    Oh, Leah… thank you for the visual feast! The photography is lovely (I loved the animal shots and Sophie in costume). Thanks for sharing; you’re right. They were too good not to post!

    • November 2, 2011 11:12 pm

      Thanks, Melissa. I like the animal shots too. I love that “view from the pumpkin perspective” shot. Reminds me of some of the great photos I’ve seen on your site.

  16. October 31, 2011 4:56 pm

    Absolutely lovely pictures Leah, really enjoyed them. My favourite? Of Brian of course, it is so offbeat!

    • November 2, 2011 11:12 pm

      Thanks, Elizabeth. Yes, Bryan does make quite a cute ladybug!

  17. October 31, 2011 9:06 pm

    These pictures are spectacular! Why do you call it the B side when they’re all “A’s”? I love the photos of the gourds, the close-up of the pumpkin and the scarecrow sign. Bryan doesn’t look too excited to be photographed, though.

    • November 2, 2011 11:13 pm

      It’s all an act, Monica. He loves it! Thanks for your nice words.

  18. November 1, 2011 8:41 am

    She looks like such a happy little girl!

    • November 2, 2011 11:13 pm

      Thanks. I’m a lucky mom because she really is a happy girl (most of the time).

  19. November 1, 2011 9:27 am

    I love that your posts literally induce a smile.


    • November 2, 2011 11:13 pm

      Wow, thanks Sara. That is so nice of you to say.

  20. November 1, 2011 5:29 pm

    Leah, these shots are downright spectacular! I’m so glad you included them in this post! The one of your husband made me laugh! What a good sport he is! The photos are so good, I seriously cannot pick a favorite!

    • November 2, 2011 11:14 pm

      Thanks, Bella. So nice of you to say. Bryan actually loves it! He is proud of those ladybug antennas because he made them for Sophie.

  21. November 1, 2011 6:59 pm

    Love ’em. How can a dandelion be so pretty and pesky at the same time?

    • November 2, 2011 11:14 pm

      Thanks, Allison. Isn’t that true about dandelions? They are so pretty though.

  22. November 1, 2011 8:47 pm

    What lovely photos — all brought a smile to my face 🙂

  23. November 2, 2011 5:30 am

    I’ve always wanted to go apple picking!

    • November 2, 2011 11:15 pm

      Thanks so much. Apple picking is so fun. This is the second year I’ve done it. It’s becoming a tradition.

  24. November 2, 2011 8:45 am

    Love the pictures, as always. Fall apples–yum! Hope your NaNo writing is going well.

    • November 2, 2011 11:15 pm

      Thanks, Susan. I really need to write more actually! I appreciate your encouragement!

  25. November 5, 2011 10:09 am

    All the pictures are winners! Thanks for sharing them. I love the second one down, with the dog in the background of a couple of pumpkins. He looks like he has a plan to “take care of” those pumpkins!

    Amazing photos, lady! I want to take a bite of those apples…They look like I can reach out and grab one.

    I love the picture of the dog and the one with the cat.

    I’m a photography and animal lover and have blogs for each topic – I’m excited to check out your stuff too.

    Happy SITS Day!

  36. February 10, 2012 10:45 am

    Happy SITS day! Love the picture of the hands on the glass!

  37. February 10, 2012 11:54 am

    You’re right. These are too good not to share.

  38. October 18, 2012 3:34 pm

    I love your photos -especially with Theresa Weir/AKA Anne Frasier. I am lucky enough to be in her anthology of Halloween stories – Anne Frasier’s Deadly Treats – Halloween Tales of Magic, Mystery and Mayhem. Everyone loves Halloween it seems.
