#28: The “Feeling” of Fall

Today started out cold, windy and cloudy.  I was alone in the house, at peace in my mind. As I watched the leaves outside turn yellow, it reminded me of the winter to come. I was admiring the beautiful fall colors, still left in a few trees in the backyard and felt that this beauty will soon be gone.  Then I saw something on a photography site that inspired me to go and try out some motion blurs on images.  So I grabbed my camera and stepped out to shoot this beautiful tree by a small pond in my neighbors yard.  Here are two images from today. These are not the kind of images I usually gravitate to….but were inspired by fellow photographers.

    It’s so strange… Now that I see the “Lady of the Lake”, as discussed on other forums, I can’t shift that image out of my mind. Our propensity for facial recognition in the abstract is amazingly strong — a survival instinct?

    Well, April, I seem to be afflicted with the same visual/mental condition, lol. What the cure is, no one knows. Even when I scroll down to look at the weeping willow image and the lake image is showing only the bottom half, as long as that smilie mouth is showing, it’s still a face.

    Got any more like this, Usha? We might as well drive ourselves bananas.

    I like the natural texture provided by the trees reflected in the water.
