Ode to the last day of autumn 2012 [#lookingup]

'When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs.  When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.'  ~ Ansel Adams

It's another end to something... and this time it is autumn of 2012. Obviously one can't record the whole season how much one would try... one can only attempt to record those  fleeting moments. In this case, I tried 'quoting' the end of autumn 2012 in between lunch. The weather is sunny, not too cold & the shapes, shades & colourss provided by nature are spectacular. Please enjoy...

Daniel Suelo on 'damned if I do and damned if I don't'

"A seed falls to the ground and dies, hiding in the soil. It grows up into a plant that flowers in fluorescent color, attracting bees and hummingbirds and humans. Condemn it for hiding. Then condemn it for blooming. Condemn it for wilting. Then it might produce fruit. What condemnation then? Are we resentful because the plant knows only to follow its own nature, both hiding and blooming in glory and bearing more seeds? I don't know how any of it works, it just does, and it's beautiful and I'll enjoy it, whether or not people like to crush plants under their feet."
