Project 64: Burnt Orange

Burnt Orange is such a yummy P:64 Autumn color for the week. I  know it’s not an exact match, but I believe there’s burnt orange in these leaves…along with every other color orange! I love shooting colorful leaves against the sky. They become almost translucent.

If you’re wondering, this is a sassafras tree. It varies between yellow, orange and red each Autumn. I never know what color I’m getting until the leaves begin to turn. The center trunk died years ago and now the volunteer shoots are growing around the stump. We’ve tied them together in a circle so they won’t fall away from the center.

Love the tree. Especially because its unique shape lets me do things like this…

Peanut; summer 2009

Peanut; summer 2010

And, Peanut; college football season 2010.
She’s a hybrid Tiger…MU and LSU.

I’m thinkin’ I need an updated shot of
…the tree.

  1. The photo with the coloured leaves is excellent! Thanks for your visit. I didn’t make those matchboox. I bought them at the address I mentioned. I think Emmanuel van Leeuwe made them.Anyway he tells the story about the matchboox.
