October 2009 Photo Challenge - The Colours of Fall

It's Oct. 1 already - any suggestions for this month's challenge?

Costumes is an easy one...it'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.

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

Here are a couple

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

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.

Awesome photos! LOVE "Keeper at leisure" Colors are breathtaking. That should be on a greeting card cover!

Hey cool finally a challenge I can actually do for once! Will try for some pics tomorrow since it will finally be sunny for a change and not foggy/raining.

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!

Ummm...just out of curiosity (no ulterior motive, of course ): Does 'mud' count as an autumn color?

klm, cute little creepers.

TT, that's great shot of KitKat in the leaves. I love the cuddling pic of Nuggy & Freddy and Majik is gorgeous ....what beautiful eyes.

Rick, your pics always have such amazing colour and I've always loved that first photo of Polly looking up at the sky.

Hazel, throw a couple of leaves on the mud and go for it.

TT Cute kitties you've got My mum also has a cat named KitKat

Rick Love Polly's whiskers up and Keeper & Abby out enjoying their yard - picture purrfect

Hazel mud most certainly is a fall colour - not reserved just for spring
