That's a great picture of Fall Moi. I like your title for it too.
I think I will do as you suggested and show the rubies in more detail.
What are you doing up so late? Isn't it almost 2 AM for you??

Let me guess - Picasa?
Cover page material. Awesome, i say! :)

And about the other post, I liked the picture, and I liked what you wrote even more - About it getting non-religious.
The world seems to think that for you to believe, you should belong to a religion - That you should only believe in this abridged version someone gave you as a kid.
I am a believer, and I don’t have a religion.
It feels good to know it’s not a lonely road.

the spy hole is fitted in the front door of the house for security ;]

Precious and essential. All one world contained in a leaf!

Fall?

Nice work.

Steve Buser said...

I like the steely-colored background against the orangish leave. Gives a real Fall sense.

The last adam said...

such a poignant shot...I dunno if I am the only one seeing it that way..but the effect is the same as reading a 500 page tragedy..never thought pictures could say so much!

Lavenderlady said...

Any moment...it almost looks like the last leaf of Fall from last year.

Sarad said...

do they have to fall? :-)

Lori said...

Ah fall...I can't wait for the approaching fall weather and the colorful leaves.

Yoda said...

Yea, the fuckers have to fall and remind us that summer is over. It sucks!

a-xpressions said...

ruth said...

The shape of the leaves is similar to the links in the fence. You know I love this one.

suramya said...

Can I hear "The last leaf clings to the bough. Just one leaf, that's all there is now And my last hope live with that lonely leaf, lonely leaf
With the last leaf that clings to the bough."

Nikon said...

Great shot, Moi. I love the colors , the angle & the background. The leaf just stands out so well.

bluemountainmama said...

photowannabe said...

I rea on someone elses blog that you are making a big move to Washington. When is this happening?
For all my complaining and stressing our move went really well. I hope yours will too.

JoAnn - NL "My digital eyes" :) said...

WoW...this is a simply Beautifully captured shot. I just love the background and the entire Composition of the shot with a very lovely DOF....EXCELLENT!

Kerri said...

You have an artist's eye Moi. If you don't paint you probably should :)
Simply beautiful. The drop of water adds to the Fall atmosphere.
I love your other 2 pics too. The old gentleman in the church is so touching. It's impossible for me to look at the beauty in this world and not believe in a Creator.

isabella said...

Love the minimalistic look!

Hang in there, little leaf - I'm rooting for you ;-)

Cris said...

My favorite season... so you know, this does not happen here with such intensity... Moi, love the last shots... They show more of you, happy Moi... and how faithful you are... xoxoxo

JAM said...

That's just how I feel sometimes, like I'm hanging on by a thread.

Nice way to shift into fall, or for what passes for fall down here.

Z said...

You know how there are always one or two that remain on the branches right through to the next summer? Maybe these will be like that!

I'm glad you enjoyed reading about green roofs at the link I posted, and thanks for your visits and comments. :-)
