I love fall, and the colors are starting to come out to make sure we all take another look around us. I don’t know about anyone else, but this time of the year truly makes me appreciate Mother Nature.
I took this shot on my way to work on Thursday. It was rainy, and I’ve been watching the trees there in the median for a week or so to catch them bright. With the wet road reflections, it all popped just a little extra.

This shot I took last night. I know it wasn’t Homecoming, but there were a lot of teenagers roaming around Old Town Manassas, all dressed up, and taking pictures. I didn’t want to be too creepy, so I was really looking more for classic “street photography” photos, and I looked across the tracks and see this poor dude standing there, I assume waiting on his train, seemingly unimpressed with the teenage joy unfolding in front of him. I had to take the shot.

Those are my favorites for this week. Next Sunday Dianne and I are heading to Lynchburg for a few days, so hopefully I’ll have some great new stuff from a different area in a couple of weeks.
I got kind of busy today, wrapped up working on the web site, some print options, and other things. As the day wound down I decided I better do something if I was going to get a shot in today. So I threw my bag and a tripod on the bike, and headed to Manassas Regional Airport.
I got lucky with the colors as the sun set.
I spent a some time at this airport when I was very young, my Dad worked for Colgan Airways. This was taken right next to the “new” terminal, on the opposite side of the airport from where Dad worked. I still like to get out there once in a while, you never know what interesting things you may find.
