The last smiles of the year


"Her pleasure in the walk must arise from the exercise of the day, from the view of the last smiles of the year upon the tawny leaves and withered hedges, and from repeating to herself some few of the thousand poetical descriptions extant of autumn--that season of peculiar and inexhaustible influence on the mind of taste and tenderness--that season which has drawn from every poet worthy of being read some attempt at description, or some lines of feeling." -- Jane Austen, Persuasion
I can definitely relate to the words Jane Austen wrote, although I attempt to describe my walk through the autumn countryside by means of a very different media, i.e. photography.


I love what Elliott Erwitt once said:
"The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don't have to explain things with words."
Cool thinking Elliot!
