Autumnal Advance

It’s funny the way autumm creeps up on us. One day the leaves are verdant with chlorophyll, the next day they are crimson. Actually, it doesn’t happen like that.

In truth, many leaves change just like this. Autumn creeps up on us. Color doesn’t always flood into the world, sometimes it creeps in on little cat feet.

Similarly images aren’t always about lines and shapes — sometimes the most important part of the image is the emptiness.

I love this image of an oak brank that I found near Bayfield WI. I hope you enjoy.
