If you’ve been following my work for a while now, you know I love apples!  I love baking and eating them, picking them, and especially photographing them.  So, with autumn rolling in, I decided to treat myself to some apple picking.  All by myself.  It was a beautiful end of summer day, warm and sunny.  I went on a week day to avoid the crowds, so I could stroll leisurely in the orchard.  I decided to use my much neglected Lensbaby for the photos this year, so I could add something different to my “apple portfolio”.  Yes, I have that many apple shots I could have a dedicated apple portfolio!

Hubby baked the pies, I did the muffins, dumplings and butter.  Kept many for snacks and lunchboxes. Picking season is almost over now, and I’m already looking forward to next year.

I hope you enjoy the photos!  This post is part of a blog circle, please go to Jessica’s blog and leave some love along the way…
