October 2009 Photo Challenge - The Colours of Fall

October 1st, 2009, 10:27 PM
It's Oct. 1 already - any suggestions for this month's challenge?

Costumes is an easy's fun, it's been done, like a burger on a bun

any suggestions?

How about pets and pumpkins? I know we did that a few years back but there are lots of new members since then.

or to keep it simple we could just do the colour ORANGE. Then it could be used for fall leaves, pumpkins etc.


fall colours sounds good.

fall colours sounds good.


fall colours sounds good.


Ditto... Ditto....

The colours of fall (includes orange:) ) it is.
Who posts first?

While this was taken last year, it still has a fall theme. Notice the "creepers" in the doorway? :D

Here are a couple :D

First, not my personal kitty, but a cat that lives with my extended family. We named her Kit Kat ;)

Second, feral foster kittens Chicken Nugget (Nuggy) and Freddy (both girls). They warmed up very quickly to us, they were only 3 1/2 weeks old when we got them, so there was bottle feeding and all that goodness ;)

Last, but not least! My eldest cat, Majik, she always looks great in the fall :)

October 2nd, 2009, 05:33 PM
Ah how adorable TT. I love the black Kit Kat pic. She really pops out against the fall colors. :)

Majik's eyes are so mesmerizing! What a beautiful girl. :cloud9:

October 2nd, 2009, 05:37 PM
Thnk you so much :D I sure do love all my kitties :D

LOL Rick - my husband has maintained for the 15 years we've had cats that they are actually from another planet and are here to observe the weird humans.....that photo of Polly staring up at the sky just confirms his suspicions! She's obviously communicating with the Mother Ship! :thumbs up

October 3rd, 2009, 01:20 PM
Ummm...just out of curiosity (no ulterior motive, of course :angel:): Does 'mud' count as an autumn color? :rolleyes:

October 8th, 2009, 03:48 PM
We went from 34 degrees two weeks ago to snow today. However, I have some shots from last fall I can share. I love all the others that have been posted so far.

You can see the fall colours reflected in the river behind Pepper.

Pepper in full stride.

Pepper and Tigger trying to decide where to go next.

October 8th, 2009, 03:52 PM
The first of these shows off Pepper and Tiggers' beautiful tails. The last two here are among my all time favorites.

October 8th, 2009, 03:55 PM
I've copied these from my Facebook page. When I get a chance I'll post them from home in a larger format.

October 8th, 2009, 08:16 PM

October 8th, 2009, 11:21 PM
These are last year, so no Jelly, but I think P&B look cute. :)

I'm hoping to get this year's this weekend if the weather will finally cooperate. The leaves just finally turned here for us in the last few days, but it's been nothing but rain!

October 8th, 2009, 11:27 PM
Here's a preview of this year's Halloween cards. I make cards each year for my team at work. :)
