Autumn at the Point

Cameras: above, Kodak EasyShare Z1485 IS; below, Olympus E-20n.


Fall Flower Show at Phipps

In honor (apparently) of its Japanese theme, the 2015 Fall Flower Show has visitors keeping to the left instead of to the right all the way around the conservatory (except in the Fern, Orchid, and Stove Rooms, because a foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little conservatories). It makes old Pa Pitt wax nostalgic, because Phipps was a keep-to-the-left place for the first century or so of its existence, before finally converting to keep-to-the-right circulation at some time in the late twentieth century.

Cameras: Konica-Minolta DiMAGE Z3 and Olympus E020n.

Golden Forest

In these pictures, once again, Father Pitt challenged himself to take pictures that could go directly from the camera to the public without any cropping or other adjustments.

Camera: Canon PowerShot S45.

More Fall Colors

These were all taken directly from the 99¢ camera, without passing through any image editor, after a walk through the woods.
