Autumn Leaves

This is a photo from last year about this time. I took it at Maymont Park downtown and thought I would put it up again. Apologies to those who have already seen it. We are still waiting for some autumn color around here. The temperature is supposed to be mid 80’s this afternoon.

It’s a cheerful photo and one that reminds me why I enjoy photography so much.

Poetry is important too. The Boss Poem is just a simple little thing and it is being viewed now over three hundred times per day. It’s not StumbleUpon either. It’s search engine traffic and people are apparently concerned about their relationship with their boss.

That’s not surprising. Job concerns have to be high on a great number of lists these days.

Lots of activities may be cut back. But we can all still blog can’t we? We can write prose and poetry. We can take photos and we can offer encouraging comments to each other.

Taking photos is a lot cheaper when you don’t have to develop film. And everyone already has a computer. Maybe dial ups will make a comeback though.

Maybe the photos should be smaller and fewer to the page.

I don’t know. But the weather is terrific and it’s relaxing to run out into nature somewhere and start looking for the beauty wherever she may be.

It’s a recipe for dealing with the emotions that accompany  changing times. Document the changing foliage. Take photos of the clouds.

Update// Well this explains all the readers. . .

It has traditionally been a day for employees to thank their boss for being kind and fair throughout the year. The holiday has been the source of some controversy and criticism in the United States, where it is often mocked as a Hallmark Holiday. Recently, sites like Hallmark have recognized the holiday with a contemporary spin

  1. OH MY GOODNESS – that has got to be my favorite photo on your site so far! (Okay I know I loved some of your other ones so much – so perhaps it will be my favorite fall photo)

    Gosh – everything about it is so magical – the colors, the details and the setting itself! Just love it!

    Well we came back from up north Monday night and I have been playing catch up with a few things ever since.

    We did end up taking over 200 pics. Many are nice – but I forgot that the colors up north are not as colorful as they are where I am now. Here I have something that looks like your photo – brilliant reds, yellows, greens, browns, etc. Up there it is very yellow because of the trees that grow – still nice, but not as colorful.

    But the weather was amazing and it was such a nice break from the everyday city life.
