Unplanned Hiatus

Hey, everyone! I was recently involved in a hit and run accident with a bus. (The driver has been found; note that driving a bus means your bus is clearly labeled and you are easy to find, so driving away after an accident is more than a little crazy, aside from being immoral.) Though I was physically uninjured, I am overwhelmed and need to take a break from several things. I expect to be silent here for about a week. I have some lunches photographed that aren't quite ready for you, and I honestly don't know what my lunches will look like over the next week or so. One lunch I had recently consisted of a snack pack of hummus and pretzels with ginger ale and corn nuts for dessert from the 7-Eleven near my work. I'm not exactly batting a thousand here.

Today I have no lunch to show, but fall is really beautiful, so I'll show you some pretty things in this post. (I've been practicing my non-food photography for a while and I have no clear outlet for these things anyway.)

First, a sugar maple leaf, changing color:

And a smoketree leaf with a red stem among fallen needles of a pine tree:

Some stuff still blooms this time of year, like these clematis blossoms:

And this toad lily:

While other things are getting berries now, like this vibernum:

And conifers are starting to bud, like this cedar of Lebanon tree:

And this cypress tree:

What does fall look like where you are?


  1. OMG, I am so glad you are OK physically but that would have been terrifying and I can imagine is not something that you can just forget about! I can't believe the driver drove off, I hope they get in mega loads of trouble. Take as much rest as you need.

    It is spring here now. We don't get a nice fall like you guys where I live. Where I live it is pretty warm year round. Though there are some nice flowers that we get in spring! And where I live the jacaranda trees come out and they are gorgeous.

  2. I'm so sorry that this happened to you; it must have been really scary, and I hope taking a break will be healing for you <3
    Your fall photography is beautiful!

  3. I'm just seeing this now -- my gosh, I'm so sorry you had to go through that! How frightening. Hope you're doing better now!

  4. I'm so glad to hear that you are physically ok but so sorry that you have to deal with the trauma of the accident. The driver is an idiot and I'm glad that they were found and hope that they will be held responsible to the fullest extent. I'm so sorry that this happened to you but so grateful that you are physically ok. Take as much time as you need <3 I hope that you are doing ok.

    Beautiful fall images <3 Fall is truly the best time of the year.
