About this photo: It's Thematic's autumn week, and everyone's invited (even you, Beav). Head over here to get your seasonal licks in before the new theme, triangular, launches tonight at 7:00 Eastern.Like all seasons, autumn eventually comes to an end. And when it does, we're left with a stark landscape of bare branches and wide-open spaces. There's no canopy, no shade to cover the increasingly cold ground. Even the sound is different, as the wind no longer has leaves to rustle.
I don't say this to be negative. It is what it is, and how we perceive the end result - positively, negatively, or somewhere in between - is entirely our call.
"End result" may not represent ideal phrasing, mind you, as it'll all be changing yet again in just a few months. Which, in a certain way, is what makes the whole season thing such a kick. For all the familiarity each season seems to offer, there's enough variation along the way that we never quite know what we'll get the next time we look up.
Insofar as this tree is concerned, I'll come back to it over the next year or so, as I'm pretty sure it'll keep offering up enough variations in growth, lighting and mood to make it worth my photographic while.
Your turn: Seeing the same things, only differently. Please discuss.
