Autumn…a change in perspective!


Monday, I released an image of Autumn leaves called ‘Tumbling into Autumn, on my general facebook page. What I failed to release on FB was a few words I wrote; they read:

And Autumn came…
And me; a sunshine girl,
Felt a heart ache for the summer
As the rains began to fall…
Waiting for that quiet blanket of snow to cover all.

Perspectives have a funny way of changing. Playing in the rain tonight, I chose to take a few snaps in the same area, differently.

Looking at the beauty and the colour of these trees while getting slightly damp, then kind of wet…I realised that my ‘heartache’ for summer had gone. The coolest thing is that it has been replaced by sheer joy, and a very novel sense…that I am quite in love with Autumn.

If you have read my last blog, you will know my modus operandi is to escape the rain of Autumn flying off somewhere warm and I have been practicing doing something different by staying.

This evening, there I was standing in the rain, taking photos of a few trees on the side of a road…and I was in heaven!

So before autumn leaves (pun intended)…and the first snow arrives…or whatever ‘weather’ and/or ‘season’ you are experiencing …remember take a peek at things from a different angle!

You might find things have changed…or maybe you have. Mmmh…

    I’d love to see your fall photos but can’t seem to open up the group to see them bigger than thumbnail size. Please help
    and let me know how much a digital print would cost. I’d like to buy one to email my clients with your lovely image. Nice poem too!

    Hi Andrea,

    Thanks for your message. To see the thumbnails larger, hover over the image with your cursor/mouse arrow, then click on the image. It will enlarge, from here move the cursor/mouse arrow to the left or right will expose an arrow pointing in either direction.

    Re acquiring the digital image for your clients. I will send you a private email. Best, K x
