Today’s The Daily Shoot’s assignment is: “Illustrate the word free today. Go with the first thing that pops into your head and make a photograph based on that idea.”
I woke up this morning around my usual time (5:30 – 6:00 a.m.) and checked out today’s Theme. Base the photograph off the first thing that pops into my head regarding the word free. Wow! Well, for some odd reason, the first thing that popped into my head was the song Free Falling by Tom Petty! Now, how to capture free falling? Jumping out of a perfectly good rented plane is out of the question! No place to bungee jump. Jump off the roof of our house? Nawww, not today.
Since I have neglected to rake the back yard, might as well put the leaves to good use eh! Did I mention it was raining (and still is)? I only got a few shots as I just didn’t feel like getting (and more importantly, getting my camera all) wet! 😛 Enjoy…
Love this! Great shot (and a great song, too)!
Thank you (and yes, it is a great song)! 😀
This is a lovely photo. I love watching leaves falling and twirling to the ground. It’s funny to think that all the mounds of leaves on the ground had to go through this short journey.
Thank you for stopping by, I hope you have enjoyed the photographs and visit again. 😀
Great thought and great capture… Looks like you didn’t want to go outside though!
Thank you and yes, I really wasn’t too keen on heading outside that day! lol
What a beautiful shot. I’ve just dropped in and snooped around a bit (from Jolene Hanson’s blogroll), and am happy I did. Your pictures are wonderful.
Where do you find your daily shoot’s assignments? They look like fun. 🙂 And, a good way to get snapping.
Thank you for stopping by, and the great comments! I have enjoyed the assignments so far from The Daily Shoot, it’s been fun!

Glad you stopped by, hope to see you around some more! 😀
Great capture. Even in the rain. Oh the lengths we will go for a good photograph 🙂
It’s amazing what we do go through isn’t it! Thank you for the comment.
Love this shot of falling leaves. I could feel the motion of the free falling leaves…
Nice one David!
Thank you Sasi, means a lot. 😀
I love it! And also, as soon as I read your blog title, that same song popped into my head! It’s not easy to get free falling leaves – I tried a few times at Bayview but gave up.
Yeah, leaves can be tricky for sure! Thanx for the comment.
