Autumn, she beckons my attention. And like the Muse, she lights my imagination with fiery colors. But with Autumn’s colors come a darkness. Shade, shadows, and an early setting sun. Mist and fog fumble with my vision. My eyes play tricks on me. I’ve grown accustomed to the sunlight and I find myself more interested in that mysterious world behind the shadows, in the dark forest, along the cold corridor. Whether real or imagined, a different realm creeps slowly near. Does the cool, howling wind blow thinner the veil between your reality and the realm of shadows?
It does mine.
A special thanks to Barbara & Laura for letting me experiment (and then take many photos).
