Just a few days ago, I was out walking Suki and noticed some glorious color on the next street. I didn’t have the camera with me, so after we got back, I let Suki inside, grabbed the Canon, and went back out. It was chilly that day. My fingers were cold. But I got the shots.
This first one was taken from the alley between two buildings. This is someone’s backyard. How cool is that? It borders on the park where Suki and I often climb a million stairs to get to the top of the hill one street over. I love how the red blazes even in dull light.
This one captured my attention because of the drift of gold across the sidewalk. The stairs are the first of many in the park mentioned above.
The very next day, the remaining leaves had been ripped off the tree by a stiff wind, and the lovely yellows had faded. I was lucky enough to capture the color at its height.
A couple days after that, the temperature dropped horribly. Winter is setting in.
Already, I look forward to spring.
