Camera Lucida – Autumn Lane

DSCN5375 (2)
The Challenge:

 This week’s theme: Autumn Lane

1. the season after summer and before winter, in the northern hemisphere from September to November and in the southern hemisphere from March to May.

2. a division of a road marked off with painted lines and intended to separate single lines of traffic according to speed or direction.

This week your challenge is to interpret autumn…the lane that separates the end of summer and the beginning of fall. Capture the beautiful colours of trees…the ripe and tasty autumn harvest…the fine cross line between worlds that are so close but so far apart…

The possibilities are endless…show your artistic side and be bold…try different perspectives and share your own personal take on one of the most beautiful seasons that transforms nature into an unforgettable painting.

This is my most autumnal pattern yet. I went out at dusk one November evening last year to find some leaves and some light.  The fall colors were amazing, and I have some pictures of this little pumpkin in and amongst beautiful red and golden leaves, but this photo is my favorite for this photo challenge. I love that it’s an almost literal rendering of the challenge.

I have to add that I love fall.  I love the colors. I love days like yesterday, when it was cool enough to bundle up in a warm sweater, yet I could still feel some warmth from the sun.  I love looking forward to Halloween, my birthday, Thanksgiving and Christmas.  I love the flavors of pumpkin, apple cider, hot cocoa.  I even love football!   Mostly I love the warm light of the autumn sun’s slanting rays and the way it turns everything golden in the evening.
