Yesterday’s turn around point for my morning walk was determined by its high impact of color! I had climbed a rise in the road and was just about to turn on my heel when this glorious display presented itself and pulled me forward.
It reminded me of a post I published four years ago. After I downloaded the image I perused the blog archives for September 2012 and there it was… Searching for Tom Thomson’s Autumn’s Garland was written in response to my visit to Algonquin Park. The few days of camping in that spectacular Northern Ontario park so treasured and often painted by the Group of Seven still brings back wonderful memories. The images I made then fueled my passion for photography.
Coupled with some thought provoking quotes makes looking for red and ochre leaves an activity that honors mindfulness…
“Leaves leave this world in beautiful fall colors and songs.”
― Debasish Mridha
“Autumn is here
and I am in love.
My heart has taken residence in my mind.
I pick the crisp ochre leaves
and put them in my pocket.
I am in love.”
― Kamand Kojouri
