Love the way these oak leaves have fallen on these steps. I took this photograph with my very patient friend on a walk in Ottawa. I must have taken about 20 photographs of leaves on stairs! When I think of fall I think in these colours. The way the leaves are free to land where they please warms my soul as fall is my favourite season for this reason! (Really did not mean to rhyme there).
I also have this one in black & white to highlight the textures and shadowing.
In 2009 I was still a firm believer that black & white photography was the only elegant or stunning form of photography. I do not believe this to be the case anymore. However, the result is that these photos were taken in black & white and I do not have any files in colour. At this point in my photography journey it saddens me a little that I can’t look back on the colour that was present at the time of taking these photos. Although, I continue to take pride in the pictures that follow. I took these in the Beaches of Toronto.
