New Steps

Baby steps are growing. Thanks to George, I am slowly remembering the steps needed to manage my website, and to give you new photos and a new blog now and then.

Autumn is a wonderful season for colours. We immediately think of leaves on trees, or on our lawns, needing raking up. Leaves fall on the ground in natural areas, and on or in water, and those are the ones that interest me the most right now.
The best water is a stream running over small rocks, not too deep, with a few leaves already underwater. Find some and look at them.
Where are they? How are they being changed? Do they look different under grey skies, or under sunny skies?

I love finding them when it is sunny, and looking to see if they are saying anything to me. Often I begin to see faces or animals, which I didn’t see when taking the photos.

So train your eyes to see the possibilities. It is akin to seeing someone who is not especially attractive and finding their inner beauty. It is there, and well worth the effort.
