i finally found time to wander about high park with norah (noreen named my camera). it's hard to explain, but for pagany-types, the title of this post doesn't seem absurd. on the contrary, it comes across as common knowledge. trees, like all things on the planet are just alive in a different way than you and i, but they experience the world just like the rest of us. i spent some quality time with the trees yesterday and tried to remind myself that there's something beyond concrete in this city.
i give you, a toronto high park autumn in pictures:
a pretty tree on the lake with the leaves blowing around.
this ornate bridge is somewhere in the middle of the park partitioning two ponds. a few dogs even went for a swim in there while i was around taking pictures.
this was just too pretty.
is it just me, or does this guy look just a little too vicious?
what a squirrel might see.
i love playing with my macro feature. this is the same tree from just about 1 metre away.
it's almost as if the wind blew off half the tree...
doesn't he look sad? ladybugs are everywhere this time of year (they're like autumn mosquito's in terms of their abundance. but this one had somehow dented his shell.
this was probably shot from the ground. have i mentioned how much i love the fact that my camera has that rotatable lcd?
no autumn shoot is complete without a macro shot of some orange and red leaves.
i took a lot more, (about 150) but these are my favourites. once my imager is rebuilt, you can see the whole lot of them if you like.
