It's only October and we have just had our first major snow fall. It came down thick and heavy, sticking to everything including tree branches. Many of the tree branches in my neighborhood — including my own — could not take the weight of the snow and snapped. Our mini-van was trapped in the driveway as two broken branches lay across the entrance. We carefully shook the snow off the branches but we then we discovered another problem. The battery in the mini-van was exhausted. Fortunately she had parked facing the garage and I was able to jump-start her care with mine. Good thing too because we were without cell phone service and would not have been able to call AAA for help. I think the AT&T tower in the area must have either lost power or been damaged in the storm.
Sometimes I get so busy doing that I forget to be. Days pass by quickly, one day bleeds into the next, and soon you've forgotten where you're going. So, you stop, look around and realise you need to slow down and watch the leaves fall. And that’s all.
Entering my least favourite time of the year. Wet, overcast, cold, miserable. Yuck!
It's also the most photographically challenging for me. What do I shoot? Dying, fallen things? Grey?
Fall is also the time of the year when I start complaining to my wife about "the misery" and that we should move to California. We've had that conversation for many years, but I guess I'm not moving.
