Sticking with the catalogue of photos from Septembers in the past, this one from 2009 would have been a fitting candidate for my series on Looking Down.
Last shot from our long walk last week. Another possibility for the haiku project.
Merry Christmas to those who celebrate!
By this point we had a good idea where we were but not sure how far we had to go.
By this point on the walk (started a few posts ago), we were a little lost.
Yet another candidate for the haiku project, with a sense of emptiness in the vertically protruding branches and a kind of calligraphy, as well as a strong sense of the changing season.
After we passed Dora’s Green we walked some country roads and public footpaths. Here’s another candidate image for my Ezra Pound haiku project.
After we passed the stile seen at the bottom of the last picture posted, we passed into Dora’s Green, where the next several pictures were taken.
A few feet further along from the last post. The path is clearer now and we’ve descended a bit.
The view from a high point on the footpath we were following. You can just make out the path ahead of us in the lower portion of the picture and the frost on the trees up ahead.
This time in black and white.
We walked west of the University campus for a little over 5 miles one frosty morning. The next few days’ posts will document that walk.
Last leaves of Autumn
Against the clear, deep blue sky.
Saw this and Joni Mitchell came to mind.
Another thing I’m enjoying here is that the Autumn leaves are not all raked up – I can drag my feet through piles of brown leaves like I did as a kid. And they’re jewel-like when frosted.
Mu is the sign for empty, the answer to a famous koan. The line of empty branches has a certain calligraphic feel to it, I think.
