So….My submission for You Capture this week kind of sucks. When I saw the challenge this week was “the feeling of fall”, I was like damnit...’cuz I live in Santa Barbara. And in Santa Barbara, we don’t have fall. We have two seasons. One season is “Wow, it’s rather warm!” and the other is “Oh, it’s mildly brisk! I should bring a jacket, just in case!” (Aaaannnd…really they can’t be called seasons because they kind of mix and match according to the whims of whatever weather gods there might be, and which of them are working that day. Apparently.) I thought of taking photos of pumpkins, because pumpkins put me in a fall mood. And I luuurve pumpkin anything: pumpkin spice lattes (YUM), pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread with cream cheese frosting, pumpkin spice ice cream, pumpkin spice milkshakes, pumpkin butter straight out of the jar (what? don’t judge.)…nom nom nom! But alas, I was friggin’ busy this week and the only pumpkins around anywhere are the sort-of-not-really-ready-for-sale ones at the grocery store. And I didn’t have time to go to the grocery store. And I kind of feel semi-retarded taking photos at the grocery store. And my husband, who is a professional photographer, once took photos of me at the grocery store and we kind of got in a fight with and were kicked out by the store manager. Soooo….moving on. Heh heh heh (nervous laughter and ultra-wide angelic grin)…
I even complained to my husband that I was going to suck this week at capturing “the feeling of fall”. And he was like, “Why? That’s easy! All you need is a ladder and a few too many drinks! Come on, I’ll help! I’ll hold the camera.”
So, after turning down my husband’s helpful suggestion, I took this picture:
My favorite flannel sheets. I love the pattern (which looks like fall to me), and I always pull these out in fall and winter because they are oh so warm and soft and cuddly. So warm, my husband gets too hot and has to sleep on the couch and I get the bed all to myself! Just kidding. They are really warm though. And soft and cuddly. So these sheets, for me, are what makes me think of fall (that, and pumpkin spice lattes).
Too bad it’s like 90 degrees out still.
