I found these flowers while out on a short walk yesterday (Saturday.) I’m not even sure what they are, but what struck me was the way this picture is symbolic of the turn of the seasons; there are still a few flowers around, but there are seed heads and fruits, too. Here, they sit side by side, just for now.It's kind to share!
Looking for something colourful today, I found these tiny leaves, autumnal and yet uplifting, with their stunning combination of shape and line, together with vivid colour. They are only small – this is, once again, a macro shot. It’s all about using these… [author points to eyes]It's kind to share!
I found this only today (Sunday.) I didn’t have any very interesting photos this week, owing to pressure of work, and was wondering what to post! This seemed to shout “A mild, wet autumn day” so effectively. (By the way, I didn’t rearrange those leaves – that’s how they were!)It's kind to share!
When I spotted this tree only today, I wanted to grab some pictures quickly! I thick it’s lovely to find such beauty in what can often be a sad part of the year. Notice that one leaf that is partly yellow; has another leaf been resting just over it, I wonder?It's kind to share!
Venturing outside today I came across these very pretty but highly poisonous berries that remind us that the back end of the year has come round again! The leaves and stems of the yew plant are also poisonous. however, some birds eat the berries, the poisonous seed passing through them intact!It's kind to share!
The only thing remarkable about this photo from last week is… exactly that! It was taken last Monday, and this begonia in a hanging basket showed no signs of withering. A little bit more ‘Indian summer’ yet, maybe?It's kind to share!
This shot is another foray into the idea of ‘negative space’ where a subject sits in a large background area. I loved the colours in this home-grown apple, but didn’t want to just fill the frame with it. The dark slats of this garden table make a contrast, illustrating two concepts connected with autumn: fruitfulness, but also, sometimes, a lot of dullness. This seemed to work for me.It's kind to share!
Summer seems to have been very erratic, this year. Yes, there have been lovely days, but a lot of periods of unsettled weather and rain, too. And heralds of autumn have come all too soon, even if some of them (like this) are quite pretty. Oh, and maybe we’ll have a few more sunny days yet…It's kind to share!
