Shooting With Soul: Exercise 17 – Capture The Seasons

Exercise 17: Capture The Seasons

I love the fall. Where I am from, we call it Autumn, which is actually more fitting given that nothing really falls off the trees to warrant calling it fall. But I have to say that it’s probably my next favourite season next to summer. Especially so when my dog enjoys it as much as I do. I love the sound of the leaves crunching under foot, the fog in the mornings, the pumpkins around everywhere for Halloween and kids dressing up as monsters. Where I’m from, there really isn’t much difference between winter and autumn apart from temperature, so seeing a visible change in seasons is really nice. Plus, I think Bentley suits leaves. 🙂

In the summer of 2014 my Husband and I decided to take a road trip down to the south of France from Sweden to soak up some sun, and as I was deciding which books to take, I picked up my copy of Alessandra Cave‘s gem, Shooting With Soul. I ended up completing a good number of the exercises in the book but instead of doing them in order, like the book suggests, I chose to complete them whenever I felt the opportunity presented itself during that time. I also used whatever I had available in terms of gear, which was not a lot and many times presented a really limiting challenge. I did not, and could not, complete all of the projects in the book on the trip, so I shall continue them now that we’re back home in Sweden. This image was completed at home.
