Beautiful picture! Makes me want a Nikon D70 even more!
I love the colors in this! Beautiful!
So pretty. I love fall leaves.
Although it looks nasty & rainy enough outside to make me doubt that autumn was ever really here, and maybe that photo was just beamed to you by aliens.
So sad. Poor little lonely red leaf. Come here. I’ll hug you.
Such different vegetation than we have here in Ca-na-da, that big purple thing in the background scares me.
Beautiful leaf, you even dont know how many people will smile when they see you!
Oh great, another political picture.
yes, indeed. this is my way of saying that I am secretly a communist.
Yup! voting for Kerry is about the same as a communist.
Oooh. That’s a great one. I love the different colors, but it looks so lonely. Looks like some of the morbid pictures I took back in my high school days. Well, I thought they were artistic and expressive, but everyone else just called them “morbid.”
“one is the loneliest number…one is the LONEliest number…”
i’m sure the isolation is deliberate.
great photo. give chris a run for his money.
the leaves change colors
then they blow off the tree
then they become mulch
and feed the earth
so the new growth will thrive
and be strong
*gag* poems about leaves make me gag.
Pretty red leaf.
i got nothing.
Let’s rethink the Leta-as-Republican bit – I see some upsides here. If she grows up to be Republican after living with you two vocal liberals for 18 years, she’s probably going to be one of those rich and successful Republicans (after all, she’ll need a huge pay-off for all the shit she’s going to take). What will she do with all her money?
Take care of her elderly parents, of course.
You’ll be so old and constipated by then, it won’t matter which way she votes.
its wonderful how you’re able to turn ordinary things into something so beautiful
Very pretty. I like the contrast of the red leaf and the dark green background.
Oh boy, now you’ve done it, that little bitty remark about being a communist is going to get you on the CIA list for sure.
Truly beautiful picture and the hair is great, no matter what color it is. And I think you turned out just fine, no matter what your step-father says. I hope Leta never crawls as well.
It’s a nice photo, but when are your photos going to become a little more edgy? Experimentation is good.
That leaf looks like a big kiss, just hanging there.
And skip the crawling Leta. Skip it!
If “every day” makes the second line break strangely and stuff won’t fit, try:
I take photos
with a Nikon
D70 every day
As a headline, we would say it’s got a bad break in it — you really want Nikon and D70 on the same line. But, then, you’re not a newspaper.
Yes, I am pathetic and obsessed. Thank you.
What exactly is “edgy”? Maybe Cara wants some artsy pictures of Leta’s diapers.
No, that would go more under “fetish”.
My little brother never crawled either. He scooted around on his little baby tushy. I remember still being in my, “i so don’t approve of this new THING in MY house” phase, and his scooting about confirmed my theory that he was, in fact, an alien. Of course he also scooted from one side of the room to the other eating the houseplants.
He went straight from scooting on his heinie to running full steam ahead everywhere and crashing into things. He was also by this point adamently opposed to clothing, and would often streak through the living room squealing when my parents had company over.
Between the ages of 3 and 6 he would only wear his superman underoos and a cape and he survived on cheetos and peanut butter sandwhiches.
We found out a few years later that he has an IQ of like 182.
Beautiful…here in southwestern Oklahoma the leaves go from green to dead-leaf-brown seemingly overnight.
In other news–I found another tarantula in my bathroom this morning.
Who wants to move here?!
It must have been the cheetos and peanut butter diet. Who knew?! We were all led to believe the “breakfast of champions” was Wheaties! Come to find out it’s Cheetos, instead. Oh my misspent youth…
nice bokeh, are you using the kIt lens? All apologies if this comes out in all caps, for some reason the comment form refuses to print any lowercase letters. maybe i should give in to the darkside and use internet exploiter.
The trees here in the south (of england) are just on the verge of giving us their full autumnal display – your pics are psyching me up for bunking off work one afternoon to go off and photograph them properly (I have the Canon 300D).
Especially so after seeing this pic; just one leaf can look great!
Communist or Bush supporter… tough choice! (I guess I’ll be on that CIA list now too…)
O’Henry lives on….?
I LOVE the neat slang the British have…”your pics are psyching me up for bunking off work one afternoon…” HMMM, ‘bunking off’, probably not the same as ‘bonking’ huh? HAHAHAA
Nice Leaf! Very botanical….
My twin daughters didn’t crawl either.. didn’t walk till they were 14 mos. Worked out well for me. They just sat
Once they start crawling they are uncontrollable and then the walking.. good luck.
So Dooce’s parents have been divorced? So much for Mormon family values. No, this isn’t a knock on our lovely dooce.
Lovely picture of a red leaf. And I want to say that here in Illinois, it is Autumn, and while I was raking leaves 15 minutes ago, I came across Two pretty purple violets in the yard, except my camera is old and uses film so I cannot get any pictures onto the ‘Net. Mother Nature doesn’t know how to read a calendar.
We just went to the zoo/dog park and recycled all our contraband 5%beer bottles. I began to laugh when I noticed something lying on the ground between the green glass and brown glass cavernous bins. (which were FULL might I add, of bottles not available in local stores-take THAT Orrin!)
Soaking wet and curled up among gum wrappers and broken shards of glass: a soaking wet sad little baby sock… all cute and pink and girly… it would break your heart! I would have killed for a digital camera at that moment just so I could send it to you.
Did you lose something when you recycled your last batch of bourbon bottles??
Beautiful daily pics, lady. Great hair! I have been Dooce-free for two weeks now and it is great to be caught up.
Keep on keepin’ on and as always, thanks!
There’s that Dubya google ad again! I demand google regime change! Maybe this will do it:
John Kerry for President! Democratic National Committee! Kerry/Edwards!
nicely done, Ad Verse.
John Kerry! John Edwards! Vote vote!
And just to see how closely the googlebot pays attention…
Mortgages! Cell phones! Car parts! Wonder bread! Prescription drugs!
(This is a test. This is only a test.)
Note to ‘OC’ – just because Dooce has a stepfather does not necessarily mean her monther is divorced. (Not saying she is or isn’t – just that it does not necessarily follow.)
Love the pictures!
I was in the camera store today drooling on the D70…then decided I couldn’t run fast enough to make a clean break with it.
Could I possibly be *first*?
Just call me Sarcastic Jones. But maybe some people will see just how stupid it all is, and stop.
Most people who know how stupid it is never start, though, so my efforts are likely wasted.
Anyway, I really really like that photo. Fall foliage rocks my socks odd to the point to where I never wear socks anymore!
Since your blog is a blog, and not a textbook of grammar — and since you haven’t recently posted any requests for editorial assistance — I hope you’ll leave EVERYDAY as it is. Just on principle. Thanks for listening, and thanks for sharing yourself.
my god, you people have some bullshit to spit.
its just a photo of a leaf!
and dooce is just a normal woman!
does she really deserve hero-worship of this calibre?
Carny Asada.. just shut the hell up will you?? Fer F*CKS SAKE. Why do you need to impose your perfectionism on Heather??? Don’t you think she has enough crap to deal with? Does she really need YOUR expectations of grammar thrust upon her repeatedly? Get a farken life will ya?
Kathy, you might want to follow this link and read it.
Does Heather deserve hero worship of this calibre? Sam.. give us the web address of your blog and we shall allow you to entertain us with your wit, stories from your life (good and bad) and examples of your art. THEN we shall decide who is deserving of our attention and adoration.
