Last Leaf: Defiant Happiness. Notice Me.

I think all photographers are obsessives, really, we focus on things and go back to them again and again, time and again. This week, I am obsessed with last leaves, the final bursts of defiant color and light before the Days Of Grace, and then, the gray and cold time. I saw one of my last leaves on the path we walked on in the windstorm, it was quite defiant, a last burst of vigorous and vital color and strength – it says to me,”I am going out, but with a flourish. Notice me.” I am, and am inspired by you.
