Wordless Wednesday - Paper Mama Photo Challenge - Brown

"Best friends just won't leave your side"
-Blink182
And even the littles are friends...well, when Chloe isn't biting or hitting, or when Sawyer isn't stealing her crackers....


The theme this week at Paper Mama is Brown, definitely a color of fall.  Fall, a season that we don't experience much this far south.  Well, actually our fall happens around Xmas time and it's fabulous then. 

Camdyn found this ginormous pine cone at the park last Friday and I thought....It's perfectly BROWN!  It reminds me of fall even as I wipe sweat from my brow in this 90+ degree heat.    I love the focus on the cone and her little hands.  I love the fact that she is not looking at the camera and I can make out her perfect profile.  I love how sharp the cone turned out, and I forgive myself for blowing out the background.  I'm shooting manually, y'all.  I'm getting there, one semi flawed photograph at a time :)
