leafy loafy lefty loosey larvae.

the other day, i took some polaroid pictures of leaves. it was about time i pulled out the old scanner and gave it some action.

this one was taken from the driveway. not that i drive or anything…but it’s fun to see trees like this as soon as you walk out your front door.


at willistead park:


i don’t remember ever seeing pink/purple leaves like these ones before:


or these ones:


this one came out kind of blurry (polaroid cameras don’t seem to like a lot of distance…the depth of focus starts to get dodgy), but i like it anyway:


this one, not so much…there wasn’t much light left to work with.


i need to take more leafy pictures when there’s more daylight to work with, while there are still trees left that haven’t gone bald. and i’m not a photographer by any stretch of the imagination, but i’m enjoying this spectra 2. i wonder if i can “pull a grandpa” and fool people into believing that i’m really a professional photographer, convincing them to pose nude for me and my polaroid camera…i think i’ll try that on the next random person i encounter, regardless of age, gender or shoe size.


  1. add me to the pile who’d totally strike a pose for your Polaroid film. I’m digging these pics! those trees are so beautiful. one of the downsides to living in the desert is the lack of tangible autumn 😦
