Village Green

Although it may feel like it, and the snow has been falling already, Autumn hasn’t called it quits yet.   I spotted the Fairhaven Village Green sign on the way to Daphne’s in Fairhaven for hot toddys the other day.   The colors were still so vibrant.  Sometimes the quality of my Motorola DROID camera phone really impresses me. 

This may be the last time to appreciate the colors, though.   More high winds are expected tonight, which will probably clear out the remaining foliage.

  1. I was interested to see that over on FoodPress they advise using natural light and no flash when taking photographs.

    Those food bloggers are really competitive in their photography! 🙂

    1. Oh I can believe it! Apparently you can make good money doing food photography. I was just looking at the link to FoodPress tonight – I’ll need to go check it out.

      I try to use natural light whenever possible as well – and leave the shutter open longer with the Canon vs. using a flash. It just looks better.

  2. You are so blessed to live in an area that has a change of seasons. This picture is beautiful and the details and colors in the leaves are great, especially coming from a cell phone. Great Shot !

    1. Thanks, Maria! I do feel very blessed to live here.

    My phone takes pretty good pictures, too, considering the size of it. I don’t always remember I have it, though.

    When I saw this shot it reminded me of a few I took earlier this fall, of leaves gathered at the side of a wooden stairwell–funny how some people seem to be drawn to the same things.

    This photo is great.

    1. Great minds think alike!

      You know, the one shot I didn’t get was the grown man dressed as the grinch who was standing on the corner waving at people. THAT I would have needed a better camera for.

    Great shot, especially for a camera phone. I can’t seem to get a good shot of anything with my iPhone, maybe I’ll look at a Droid when my contract is up.

    1. I’ve been happy with the Droid, but some friends have the iPhone which seems to have a lot more photo features. Although, more and more apps are popping up on the Android market.

      I think it may ultimately come down to the lighting…and the fact the lenses are so tiny.

  5. Lovely photo.

    Phone cameras are quite amazing considering their size. And handy since one usually carries one’s phone around. I just find the light has to be really good – not too dim, not too bright.

    1. I find the same thing. If you try using a flash on a camera phone, for example, no matter how good the flash or the camera – it just doesn’t look right. But, a decent alternative when I see something photo-worthy but don’t happen to be lugging around the Canon.
