    Beautiful! Thank you, Kirsten.
    I've been Frosted (thanks, Elyse and Karen!).

    Death thought about it.

    I feel autumn is very beautiful this year- the leaves are more colorful. I love the red Japanese maple ones. Sunday I walked along Isar river outside of Munich- there were maples with golden leaves and it was just beautiful

    Two leaves hang
    Like sisters awaiting their fate
    Near the end of days
    They started life the same, but one
    Lived harder, developed rough edges
    Twisted on its stem, got
    Scars, and a ruffled edge of a party dress
    The other lived simply, only
    Signs of age showing, but still
    Both beautiful in her own way
    Together await the finally falling away
    That is autumn
    I've Been Frosted

    Thank you for taking the time to look at my pictures.

    Karen, this is such a beautiful poem, very touching, almost sad as you describe the essence of fall. Thank you!

    Yesterday was a beautiful fall day, warm and sunny. A photographer pal and I went taking pictures and this is what I brought home:










    These are a little processed in Photoshop, it's something that's called Orton effect.


    And here's a little mushroom magic!

    These are beautiful, Kirsten! Just breathtaking! I hope that some day Kirsten is going to have a book of her amazing photography and I will own a copy of it

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Autumn is my favorite season, I just love looking at the changing of colors and your pictures captured that.

    A tree-lined lane in autumn
    Not so perfect as to be cliché
    Some leaves still green,
    Summer still lingering in their branches
    But most are fully autumn bound
    Beginning their annual riot of color
    Of butter and pumpkin, umber and gold
    The quiet rustling jubilation of sugar and sun

    The empty road beaconing travelers on
    Toward distant feasts of harvest bounty
    Still baking, steaming and underway
    Kitchens workers dusted with flour and spice
    The promising scents of leaf dust, decay and far off cinnamon
    Linger in the mind, a whisper of
    Laughter and fireside on the breeze
    I've Been Frosted
