“A man’s character always takes its hue, more or less, from the form and color of things about him.” FREDERICK DOUGLASS
So another week and another Weekly Photo Challenge that I am finding tough to fulfil. This weeks brief stated ‘For this challenge, we want to keep it simple: share a photograph with a prominent colour (or assortment of colours) that reveals more about you. It could be a symbolic, meaningful shade; a colour that expresses how you currently feel; or a combination of colours that excites you and tells a visual story.’
At first glance I was stumped, colour or colours that reveal more about me?? After a little think (jet lagged brain even slower than usual) I realised that I had an assortment of photos taken last week in the UK that portray the stunning colours of Autumn, my favourite season (completely taken for granted when we lived in the UK) So here are my photos of the seasonal colours of me.
How silently they tumble down
And come to rest upon the ground
To lay a carpet, rich and rare,
Beneath the trees without a care,
Content to sleep, their work well done,
Colours gleaming in the sun.
At other times, they wildly fly
Until they nearly reach the sky.
Twisting, turning through the air
Till all the trees stand stark and bare.
Exhausted, drop to earth below
To wait, like children, for the snow.
