Mosaic Monday: All the Leaves are Brown



I'm using a mosaic that you have already seen here sometime in the past. I'm having some computer and Photoshop problems that I'll have to try to resolve tomorrow, so bear with me this week.

Whenever I look at these images, that old song California Dreamin' goes through my mind... "All the leaves are brown, and the sky is gray..." I guess I'm having a reaction against all the oranges and reds and golds that I've been posting for the past few weeks. :)

Now let's have some mosaic fun! Here are the instructions:
1. Publish your Mosaic Monday post.
2. Once it is published, click on the title of the post. This will lead you to the static link for your post. The static link is the page with only that post on it. Copy the url from your browser at the top of the page.
3. Paste the url into the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
4. Type your name in the appropriate inlinkz box in this post.
5. Click on "Enter."
6. Please link back to this Mosaic Monday post so that your readers can find other wonderful mosaics.
That's all there is to it! It's always a good idea to then check and see if your link is working. If you have any questions, feel free to email me: mrcarroll(at)optonline.

  11. First of all, I'm sorry that you've been having computer troubles. I can totally empathize in that department.

    This is such a dreamy mosaic and I have no idea when I might have last seen it...in the spring? Love all the bokeh showing in a number of the shots.

    Blogger has been making it very difficult recently to post photos to my blog. I wish the situation could be resolved - it's getting tedious.

  51. Completely off topic...

    I love the music selection your have on your site. (I usually HATE it when ppl have music b/c it's usually loud and annoying.) It's so soothing. Peaceful.

    Thanks for making my day!

  52. The leaves on the ground are brown, but around here there are such brilliant yellows and oranges on the trees, especially when the sun is shining.
