Paparazzi swarm fall leaves

This afternoon, I thought it would be a nice idea to take a walk through the Washington Park Arboretum. Well, so did everyone else in Seattle along with every Nikon and Canon in town! We have never seen so many people taking photos there. It was comical. There were plenty of amatuers snapping leaves. And also every professional photographer in town with their tripods and reflectors in tow shooting families for Christmas cards! We saw several photographers with furniture along for the shoot, wood benches, and even a rocking chair along the wooded trails. It was a glorious 65 degree day to be there, and everyone seemed to appreciate that! What a lovely day!

Lots and lots of christmas card pics being taken, lol.

Good thing you were able to get these gorgeous shots! In my town, we are inundated with "leafers".
