I decided to use some photos from my week as well as some photos from my trip to Peru in 2010, a trip to Haiti in 2010 and a trip to Nicaragua in 2012. Some of these might be a stretch, but I found it enlightening to compare my situation with others around the world.

NEXT WEEK: Leaves! There are so many ways this can go....piles, colors, fallen, still on trees, sizes, different types. I love taking photos of leaves in autumn - almost as much as I love taking photos of flowers in spring and summer. I think they are my fall "flowers". Here's a transition photo for you - the leaves on my vegetable garden are shriveling up.
