Autumn is my second best season next to spring. These are some of my favourite shots from the archive.
First, we celebrate labour day. Still warm enough to go dancing in the park for young at hearts. It’s one of the biggest gathering knowing that it’s the last party season as we end summer.
“You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light. But you knew there would always be the spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen. When the cold rains kept on and killed the spring, it was as though a young person died for no reason.” ― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
Combining festival of the dead and preparing a plot for fall garden is a sure way of having fun. Kales are the best to grow during cold season. As for the skeleton, we have to wait how it will mature or whether it will grow some bone spurs.

Another guessing game of weekly photo challenge while I am out and about. Here I am creating my theme again: the falling leaves of autumn taken last year 2012.
Fall is a lovely time when the leaves turn to many shades of colours from yellow to dazzling red. When every leaves look like flowers and the trees became so excited in showing off it’s majestic structure.
Who cannot fall in love with the fall season. It’s enough to bring ones senses to heightened awareness that I am nothing in front of these trees and it is a humbling experience.

“It is only her in large portions of Canada that wondrous second wind, the Indian summer, attains its amplitude and heavenly perfection, — the temperatures; the sunny haze; the mellow, rich delicate, almost flavoured air: Enough to live — enough to merely be.” – Walt Whitman, Diary in Canada
