REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Finding that creative image

My weekend was somewhat similar to Lisa's (The Creative Exchange), in that our youngest son (with his fiancee') made a short visit home from the other side of the state.  They came to attend the wedding of our son's childhood friend. Time was too short.  There was no time for my weekend photography, either, so I was happy to revisit some photos I had taken earlier in the week and find this image of beautiful leaves.   The quote is interesting, but I'm not sure I buy into it.   I like spring and summer too much.

Evelyn, not sure I agree either, but this sure is a gorgeous photograph! The light you have captured is magnificent. So glad you got to spend some time with your "little boy" too this weekend!

Thank you so much for sharing at The Creative Exchange today.

Have a wonderful day!

Gorgeous shot and wonderful light!

Even though you might not believe it, this is a beautiful illustration of the quote! It's nice that you had a visit from your son - sometimes life takes precedence over photography.

Very pretty photo! Time always seem to move too quickly when you want to take slow down!

I'm with you, Evelyn! The colors of Autumn are stunning here in the Pacific Northwest, but I like the Pink Trees of Spring best :~)

Such rich colours, you have some awesome seasons up there.

I love spring the best of all the seasons, Evelyn, but at the same time, I realize that there are only so many photos you can take of daffodils before you start yearning for the peonies of summer, or the leaves of fall...

I DO love the Santayana quote, Evelyn! YES!

I've used this quote in the past and I do believe in its intent, but it's so darn difficult! Beautiful leaves. :)

I love the changing seasons...just like life...an ebb and flow. All are good and necessary in their own way but my favorite is fall! Love the light on these beautiful leaves. :)

Oh I love how the sunlight is playing on these gorgeous fall leaves. Me I'm a Spring and Fall gal so this is right up my alley.

Wonderful shot and a super quote to go with it. About the only season I don't look forward to is winter.
