“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Choose only one master – Nature.”
When I “googled” – fall – the search images came up with tons of vibrant colored photographs. Amazing and heart-warming. I know very well that I don’t live in a place where I can find those kind of trees. And being a person who loves nature and colors, it is kind of sad that I cannot photograph one of the most beautiful phenomenon on Earth – Autumn Leaves (To be honest, maple leaves are my favorite of all!).
But then I thought why not to capture the colors that are around me, even though I had to look for them. After all the season is the same here too. So here are some of the shots I captured of fallen leaves. Enjoy – not-so-typical fall photos!
This one is my favorite –
There is a lot of variety in the leaves if you notice. HEHE.
“When you go,
if you go,
And I should want to die,
there’s nothing I’d be saved by
more than the time
you fell asleep in my arms
in a trust so gentle
I let the darkening room
drink up the evening, till
rest, or the new rain
lightly roused you awake.
I asked if you heard the rain in your dream
and half dreaming still you only said, I love you.”
― Edwin Morgan, New Selected Poems
Monsoon is not just about the rain, or is it?
Anyways, you take care!
… Gulmohar from top on a party cloudy day …
. . . Black & White Closeness . . .

Well, Instagram is something hard to avoid.

Oh, by the way, Gulmohar is Hindi (Urdu) word for Royal Poinciana or Flamboyant (Scientific name: Delonix regia). In India it is known as Gulmohar (Hindi and Urdu -‘Gul’ means ‘Flower’ and ‘Mohr’ is ‘coin’.
It had lot of flowers – bright beautiful red flowers – but till June/July. And now is the time for it to be just green, which is fantastic too! I did share a photo of a petal which fell from this very tree. You can click here to check that (It looks like a sting-ray!)
Hope you are having a nice and peaceful time.
