Shades of Autumn | Purple

Purple… It’s so royal and majestic… and decorates nature {and things} so beautifully.

Painted buildings, tasty beverages that steam and froth, fun birthday party festivities, beaches, leaves, and very tall geisha’s walking on sticks… Purple is the color of the week. The many hues and shades of purple make it quite fun!

I break things and trip a lot. I like to chase things like dreams, goals, ideas, and raindrops. I create things with words. Writing has been an outlet since I first discovered the magic empty space of a journal. Words dance around in my brain and often land amidst scraps of paper, find their way into journals, or etch themselves into blinking pixels. I hope my words fall like rain on tender souls in need of refreshing. Finding photos in random moments helps me share stories. During a trip to Africa the perfect trifecta of my first DSLR, mission trip, and dream-location happened and my love of photography became a reality. I'm currently writing my first book, "Will They Laugh if I Call You Daddy: Growing up with 2 Dads in an Evangelical World," I'm a board member for One Million Kids, and I believe that every kid of an LGBT parent should have an opportunity to #ChangeTheConversation with their story. My bio remains in process because I am.

    2nd to the last shot… Ah-MAZ-ZIIING!!!! Just amazing. I love the richness and the boldness of it. 

  5. Jenny, you knocked it out of the park with every single one of these photos! I’m blown away. My favorite is definitely the shot of the leaves against the purple bokeh. So beautiful!
    Thank you so much for joining us in the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge. I hope you’ll be back again next week when we move on to our new theme, brown. Have a great weekend!
