wednesday was gorgeous, so i decided to suck it up and make friends with fall.
after all, she'll be gone before i know it and since i'm lucky enough to live somewhere where fall is truly a gift...i wanted to try to "unwrap" her.
i decided to go to a field near us that i've never walked before, where the walking trails are mowed in between fields of wildflowers. sadly, the wildflowers are slowly fading in color and drying up,
but i still fell in love with them, even in their aging state.
unfortunately, i got bored of the flowers rather quickly, or at least had taken enough photos of them, when an "off the beaten path" area called my name. it was covered in big rocks, where fallen trees had caved in on them and moss and fungi were playing. squeal.
i crawled all over the rocks, taking photos of the fungi in every angle possible, often while not looking through the viewfinder. unfortunately, when i was moving from one rocky area to another, a rock gave out from under me and i fell. a full out body fall. i landed on my right side, letting my leg and my elbow take the brunt of the fall, as i was holding my camera in my right hand and couldn't catch myself. thankfully, i was already close to the ground as that's where the moss was, or it could have been so much worse. i have scrapes on my leg and my arm is scraped and bruised, but i'm fine.
but sheesh. why is it that you feel so stupid when you do something like that?
anyway, i'm not blaming fall. she didn't do a thing, other then get me out of the house to play.
but those moss and fungi photos i took. well, they're still waiting to be edited. i'm holding a tiny grudge towards them. i mean really...where was the "fun" in fungi wednesday?
happy weekend everyone. love all over your loved ones.
