For folks that live in the South Charlotte area, the ginkgo trees on each corner of the Ballantyne quad are hard to forget once you’ve seen them after they start turning yellow in the fall. The first time I noticed them with a photographer’s eye was last year, and in a very interesting coincidence, this year I took my girls there on the same day as I did last year; November 22nd! My husband and I took our girls on that morning, as it was Thanksgiving, and I assumed that it would be relatively deserted, since it was the morning of a holiday. When we got there, there were already two other families taking photos, and by the time we left, there were a half a dozen groups there! I think several were other professional photographers, taking photos of their own families. It was neat to be a part of it. I hope we stayed clear of other folks’ bokeh!
We used some of these photos for our holiday cards this year. I just love them.
