Seems like this fall has been rather off track this year. Not sure if its me or the fact that all the important weather elements of having a beautiful fall have not come together. I think it’s a bit of both. I have been so involved in work, including my upcoming website, that I haven’t had much chance to really go out and investigate fall.
I also made a promised to you, my readers and myself that I would add more photojournalistic articles to my blog. With that said, I will remind myself from time to time, this blog is also a photography journal with pictures and stories to tell and share. with you. So, without further ado.
I decided to stick around the neighborhood and go off to look around and see what I could find. My Mother, the late Martha McKeen Welch years ago past along to me some wisdom and great advice. She said and I quote. “Remember Mardi., You don’t have to go to far a field to find what may inspire you through the lens.” Take a walk outside and look around your own backyard. Stop and listen. Take a deep breath and smell the air around you. I come to find out this wisdom of course applied to other things in my life that I know now. You will be quite surprise how all the elements come together. Sometimes it takes time and patience. You have to work hard to find how the pieces of the puzzle will fit together in this particular case, from an artistic point of view. When it comes together, the end result can be just magical and rewarding!

Absolutely glorious. Autumn IS New England. You are lucky to be able to enjoy it. Thanks for sharing.
You are most welcome Kathy. Its nice to stop and look either at the real thing or in this case a
photograph and find a little joy in a very hectic world. Thank you for sharing your appreciation
and joy with me.
These are beautiful photos! And I take seriously the advice from Big Martha, to just look around you to find beauty! It brought back lovely memories…
The blog is great!
Thank you so much Sarah. What a lovely thing to say about Big Martha! Not a day goes by that I am not reminded just how deeply she is missed! These fall photographs remind me of home. Walking around the lower field and just taking in the beauty of the huge variety of trees that surrounded me. Truly, an era gone by. Through photographs the memories are etched in our minds and hearts. A legacy that I will carry on with delight and curiousity.
Those photos are absolutely gorgeous!
Thanks Morgan for you kind compliment. Glad your enjoying my blog. It’s great to have feedback.
So please do keep the questions coming. It’s very satisfactory when the end result works out.
