That Time of Year Thou Mayst in Me Behold
"That time of year thou mayst in me behold
When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang
Upon those boughs which shake against the cold,"
-- from That Time of Year Thou Mayst in Me Behold by Shakespeare
Reading the above quoted poem the other night, I thought instantly of some photos I took last November. One, in particular, of a single leaf hanging on to a branch. Above you see my efforts to convey that cold autumn air and the last grasp of a leaf. I love that time of year and change of season.
As for the rest of the poem, I am not so sure, I'll leave that to the experts to debate.
This brings us to sketch 30 of 31!
