Simplicity Photo Challenge: Fall

This is one of those photos I wouldn't have captured without my iPhone.  I was out walking my dog at 7am and I hadn't even had my coffee yet but I was awake enough to notice all of these leaf "tattoos" on the sidewalk.  It had rained the day before and as the streets were drying off and the leaves were blowing away, they were leaving behind these beautiful little imprints on the sidewalk.

See what Fall looks like in other places...




Oh, and hey, thanks to Mortal Muses and Darrah Parker I won a spot in the "Slice of Life Project" class that is starting in January.  It sounds like it's going to be a blast, so click on the button below for the details and join me!
