The inevitable path

Burnham-Woods-Fall

Whenever I walk and there is a path or a walkway I have to shoot it.  It serves no other purpose than to ground my photos that day.  It makes me think of prospective and where I should be pointing the camera.  What line will the eye take when someone looks at it?  Once I have that all figured out then I can shoot in peace.  All the other photos for the rest of the day will be how I want them.  If I can not get this simple photo right then nothing will work out, besides I wonder where all of these paths go.

Autumnal Equinox

Dam Trees Fall or autumn has officially entered my heart. I will get out more and willfully take cold air into my lungs. Being born in the fall has its benefits for a person like me. Everything I like happens at this time. Leaves turning gold and red, rustling, all around. Noise underfoot, my field jacket from Lands End, drinking coffee on the veranda in the remnants of the evening. I am not much of a Halloween fan, but the grandkids are and they will run from door to door to get the goodies, they will only partially eat. It is the hunt that is important not the goody you get. Then the long haul to Thanksgiving and finally that weekend something will end fall for me. It used to be Marshall Fields (boy do I miss that place) holiday specials but now I must rely on the St. Charles Electric Light Parade.
