This has been a favorite shot for me. It’s just a simple still-life. My kids loved to go apple picking. So for a while each year we have all kinds of photo ops with the apple arrangement.

Apple picking is a fun family tradition. And a nice photo op too.

Now that the kids are grown, I have to shoot fruit and tomatoes on the kitchen counter. Or, rent some kids. Haven’t been to Disney in a long while either. Without the caption you might not realize how the apples evoke such a fond memory for me.

When I lived in CT, we would go to the orchard and buy apples by the bushel – maybe $5.00 or so. Now, you pay up to $1.69 per lb. in CA. Oh, they also had fresh apple cider and homemade brownies. We also used to go where my ex could dig up his own Christmas tree – then plant it in the front yard. Miss some of those things.

Cider and apple cider doughnuts were sold at an orchard near my daughter’s college. The doughnuts were outstanding. But, you miss the walk among the trees.

Fortunately, our property in CT was wooded, we lived within walking distance of two lakes, a pond for ice skating and a mile or so from a beautiful reservoir surrounded by a pine forest. I would go pine cone picking each winter to make holiday wreaths etc. In the Spring it was Dogwoods – it’s all making me long for a little bit of home. But, CA is where I’ll stay. Thanks for the memories.
