October 6, 2012 – Change
One of my Facebook friends posted a very neat photo of multiple color leafs and I said to myself “Now, how come I’ve never thought about that?” so I came up with the most sensible answer to the question “I am going to plagiarize the idea” – Wait, did I say plagiarize? What I meant was that I am going flatter my friend’s ingenuity by imitating it 😉 – right? there was a very smart man that said “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”. So I set out on my bike and ride around the neighborhood looking for the multiple color leafs – my backyard donated some (I had to climb the shed to reach some of the acceptable ones). It was freezing and quite windy out there today – was I glad that I wasn’t planning to play golf today.
Anyway, rambling aside, the idea of the leaves changes color in one photo is just so amazing. A very simple and yet very fascinating idea – there is a short window when that can be achieved and the photo would say plenty. Birth, growth and eventually, demise all in one stretch. Just like us.
