fall breathes its last


it is fading; those golden, careless, breezy days are slipping from my grasp.  the wind blows harder each day and trees and branches quiver - my heart is mourning, wishing the season would begin again. we're on a walk in sun-dappled woods; light shards dance on the ground, the last of leaves make their lazy, slow decent to the ground.  i clutch my camera tight and slip on a crooked smile - a smile balanced between the bitter-sweet last days of fall and crispness of winter unfurling.  

are you looking forward to winter or wishing fall would stay longer?

  7. i feel like my fall here in southern california just arrived - kinda. it's like hot a couple days of the week and then it's cold... i'm not sure if i completely feel the fall vibe yet but i'd definitely like it to stay awhile!

  8. These fall pictures are beautiful, and totally stunning. Great captures, Acacia!

    To be honest, both! ;) Haha I'm totally looking forward to our first snow, but yet I would like for Fall to stay a bit longer. It's hard to let go of something you love, you know? :)

    Take care, and hope you have a blessed day!

  12. Your words honestly make me feel life slow down- it is so peaceful and quiet and content.

    But all in all, I wish summer was here. I love the other seasons, but summer is it.

  16. Fall in all it's glory and splendour has been bottled and preserved in these photos, the drop of dew ready to fall from the branch, the crunch of marmalade leaves. Your words are beautiful too.
