The Shape of Things

Noticed more of the Japanese maple leaves today as I was walking. They have begun to dry and contract in upon themselves to form complex shapes.
Legs and arms to lift themselves off of the ground and skitter about on.
As the autumn season progresses and the colors fade the shapes and forms of things start to catch the attention. The bones of the world come clearer into view.

Its a different view

Less flamboyant in color

With a drama all its own...

Inanimate become animate. It occurs to me that I've never seen life in death the way I see it in these photos. Beautiful but eerie and a little intimidating. Thanks.

Oh! I like how you see the living spirits and personalities in every little part of nature. I know those leaves. That's Mable, and Russell, and Lefty! They are my friends too.
Love your work. J.M.
