  1. I love the brilliance of the autumn leaves in your photos. In coastal South Carolina we don't see much leaf color until November and then it's very muted. The soybean fields here turn a lovely gold and that has to satisfy my longing for fall color.

  3. Beautiful photos. We aren't allowed into Vermont at this time (we are in a NY county that can't enter without quarantine), and I truly miss it.

  5. I miss fall in New England. Our family had a place in Jamaica, about an hour south of Shrewsbury. Pretty sure the Long Trail runs through there. We're heading up to NE in a few weeks to work remotely and enjoy the foliage & some hiking on the weekends. Thanks for these photos.

  9. Could have been taken yesterday.

  12. If only more people were able to take such nice scratchy pictures. On a side note, my parents (probably similar vintage) took phenomenal candid photos. That generation seemed to have a knack for capturing great moments. A lot of them feel museum quality compared to the untold zillion smartphone photos so many take without really thinking.

    1. "There's a big white house on a leafy street
      On a summer's day of 1963
      Station wagons parked in the drive
      Dents in the fender and wood on the side
      There's kids and dogs and Instamatic cubes squinting hard in the sun
      Not just yet, but one day too
      They'll be chasing what's already gone"....Mary Chapin Carpenter

      I find myself wanting to return to the good ole days quite often- the days when creativity required thought and spirit.

  14. Treasure these old photos, they are works of art! They are so stunning and perfectly capture the vibrancy of autumn, the weathered tones of wood, and the crisp blue sky.
