The Rhythm of Repetition – Picture Fall, day 23

A lovely find from The Christmas Tree Shops in West Dennis, MA, produced the subject for my photo prompt today:

Picture Fall - day 23

The instruction was to use the repetition of shape or form in a way to please the eye, and look as though the image might go on forever.  I was so happy to find the box of this flavor of K-Cups while I was on the Cape last weekend, I wish that I will forever be able to find this selection again.  (I actually jumped up in down in the aisle of the store.  True story – you can ask my sister after you read this post about our visit  if you like!)  Alas, that is generally not the way of the shops of the Christmas tree.

Preparations – Picture Fall, day 10

The photo prompt that arrived in the mail today turned out to be slightly ironic for me.  I wanted to check it first thing this morning because I was headed to a lovely place for a special luncheon that I was sure would be filled with all sorts of things indicative of  fall and full of color.  My sister and our best friend and I went to Mason, NH to have lunch at Pickity Place.  Their menu changes monthly, and every time it is spectacular.  Pickity place is surrounded by gorgeous flowers and herbs, and is nestled at an adorable cottage in the woods.  Well worth the trip if you are in the southern New England area.  I thought for sure I’d easily fulfill today’s photo prompt during our visit.  Today’s prompt, however, asked us to find something appealing in our kitchen.  Fall is a season of preparations, many of which traditionally happen in the kitchen.  It also asked us to try to take the photo at a time when the kitchen would be filled with natural light so that we could take the shot without flash.  I was leaving the house early today and knew I wouldn’t be back before all natural light was gone from my kitchen, so I decided to fulfill the prompt with a shot of a morning preparation for the day, my beloved Keurig coffee maker.  Have you seen these babies in action?  No muss, no fuss, great coffee fast. 

I did, of course, take some pretty fall pictures at Pickity Place, after a fabulous meal.  Would you like to see those?  Maybe I’ll put a slideshow of those shots together tomorrow since I don’t have to go to work!  Thanks, Columbus!
