That's All I Have Today, It's All I Have to Say

This week's Saturday Scavenger Hunt word was chosen by Tara at Eclectic Spaghetti. She chose the word, red.

This week, I decided to actually look for fresh photos for the word, so I brought my camera to work, and started hunting. On my way to work I noticed the leaves on this tree were already starting to turn red. Then after I took the photo, I realized that my camera was next to my frozen lunch item in my bag and steamed up the lens when I took it out in the warm humid morning air, producing this softer look.

Here it is even more pronounced. It's so dreamy.

I took my camera around with me at lunch. It was national "talk like a pirate" day and usually, some funky pirate organization is out on the Pentacrest, making pirate hats out of newspaper and, of course, talking like pirates. I really wanted to photograph them, but sadly, they didn't do it this year.

Instead, I took a picture of this guy downtown playing with his red organ right out in public, Ew.

I talked the Pirate on Friday, "Watch me copy this CD." (Oh, it wasn't that kind of pirate?).

Great pictures of redness. I like the street musician, around here they would have a sax or guitar, but there they use electronic keyboards.

That's a beautiful photo of the trees, and very well timed. Isn't today or tomorrow the first day of Autumn?

Oh, I like that frozen foods fog effect!
If I were going to play red keyboards in public I would probably wear a clown suit as well...
