I captured a few dying splashes of colour before the November spectrum of grey takes over the world's colour palette until some time next year - excluding the stringing of Christmas lights to ward off the grey for a little while.
Wanting it to happen or not, the beautiful colours of summer and fall have been replaced with - depending on your perspective - a long stint in a world devoid of much colour. Don't get me wrong, as much as I love the vibrant colours the rest of the year, a season seen - or in my case 'shot' - in near-monochrome tones has a beauty unto itself. A peacefulness, like a long slumber.
I'm looking forward to capturing the world in black and white and grey.

|another year's tangle of shed leaves|
|what I mistook as clusters of blackbirds at first turned out to be tufts of desperate leaves|
|strength in numbers?|
|last of the summer blossoms|
|grey begins to dominate the backdrop|
|bone thin against the elements|
|and lastly, as we say good-bye to another season - and soon another year - may we never forget the sacrifices made by so many in hopes of making our world a place of peace.|
How many more will have to fall before that happens?
