This past weekend, a few of us visited the Dallas Arboretum for their annual Autumn at the Arboretum event. I first heard about this event a couple of years ago, but it's taken me this long to work a trip into my schedule. This year they brought in 75,000 pumpkins to decorate the garden! It was a beautiful day - and by that, I mean not too warm, which is basically my standard for what constitutes a good day in Texas.
And there were a boatload of people, which made photography a challenge, at least for me, since I usually prefer to not have people in my photos. But I've learned the art of isolation, and so with a bit of patience, I can usually find a way to photograph what I want without the people.
For those of you in the area, the event will be going on through November 25th, so make plans to go.
Below are some of my favorites from Saturday.
