Is it just me or did Autumn fly by? While walking my muse, the most amazing dog model "Leeluu", I was thinking about how I had not done any fall color work.
We (Leeluu and I ) took a turn around a path and bam! There it was in full glory right in front of me. The most beautiful gold and red colors I had seen yet this year. Right in my backyard. After staring for some time I made a slow turn around of 360 degrees. Fall was not only here but going to be gone soon I realized.
Then I was on a mission to not only walk Leeluu at this beautiful place but to observe what I had been missing right in front of me all along. I looked for the light, checked it out at different times of the day, looked at the big pictures and the small details. I realized that there were a lot of people doing the same thing. Kids playing in the leaves and soooo many photographers. I must have been sleeping through our previous walks.
It seems it was only a few weeks ago and already the peak has passed. l am still practicing being more aware and searching for the last pockets of color. I wondered if there was a lesson in all this...surely:)
