Leaf Down, Leaves Up

A week ago Saturday, I walked to get the car so that Mama, Duncan and I could tour at leisure our neighborhood and the steep hill above it. We wanted to find more colorful autumn leaves to enjoy and to share with everyone.

I walked around to unlock the passenger door and couldn't believe this golden leaf balanced so perfectly on the door handle. Then I looked up to enjoy the leaves still on the tree.

Isn't it just amazing how sometimes just the simplest thing happens and catches our eye?

It's as if the yellow leaf was waiting right where you couldn't miss it. Nice to know you once lived in Wichita, and are enjoying the photos posted. Today was a beautiful day, and I went down by the river with camera in hand.

They are a thing of beauty - maple leaves. Nice photos.

Lynette, If you believe that nothing is by chance, this was a bit of a thank you, maybe even a wink.

You were amidst lots and lots of gold, Lynette, everywhere you looked. The leaves are beautiful. I really like the quirkiness of the first photo.

You captured the leaves beautifully! Thanks for the information about the Cumberland Island author. I think I might have read one of her books before. I used to read a lot until I got computer addicted. lol

Quick thinking taking the picture of the leaf on the door handle and not just brushing it off.

You are really having some great leaf moments.

Well, I'm gonna comment on my own blog because I've noticed something just now. I've been going back and forth on my blog stack, looking all over at everyone's posts. Each time I've come back to my own blog, it's opened up at the photo of the leaf on the door handle. And guess what? The leaves on the tree above the car are reflected right there in the handle. This photography thing is such a blast, isn't it?
