“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all. ”
Every season evokes an emotion, and that emotion comes to life in the form of memory. The very nature of the season is slowing, and life taking a pause until the days can grow longer and it the sun shows its warm face again. The breeze rustles through the branches clinging to the colorful jewels it took all season to create, and gently carries it to the ground. I have been lucky over this season, to be able to be an audience to such quiet events. I will share with you today, what I have been witness to in the past few days. Take a deep breath, relax and enjoy the fall season.
“Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower.” – Albert Camus
Over the next few weeks it is my goal to try and capture the essence of this changing season. Fall is upon the mid-west, and while may not have the signature status of a New England Fall, it has every bit of color and warmth that our neighbors to the North East have. I will be trying to show that, along with a little of the character of Kansas/Missouri. Let me know what you think.
It’s been a while since I last updated this site, but I have been pretty busy with work, wedding, and whatever else is thrown my way. That being said I haven’t been shooting as much as I would like to. This is a set that includes some big icons of the country club plaza shopping district in Kansas City, MO. The leaves were dancing with the wind and scratching a beat on the brick pavers and with all of the color falling off the trees it made for a fun shoot. There was a group of ladies watching as I knelt by the gutter to take the picture, and they were trying to figure out what was so interesting, and one even said “…maybe he’s trying to catch the leaves as they spin up.” I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
This is the eastern side of the country club plaza, with one of the most recognized towers in on the plaza. It has been gorgeous out the past few days in Kansas City, so I took that opportunity to shoot the sunset and twilight with some car trails(my favorite).
