So here are my submissions for this week’s topic, “Fall”.
Unfortunately, I live in Canada’s Deep South and the leaves have not yet begun to change, except for on my neighbour’s maple which has had dalmation spots on its leaves since June.
Now I’m not one to complain [please ignore that I have an entire category named “Rants”] but wouldn’t it have been better to hold off on this challenge for a couple of weeks? I mean, to find any significant autumnal tree chromafication this week, you’d have to go way far north, say to Puvirnituq, Quebec.
I met a guy from Puvirnituq once. He was wearing a t-shirt which sported a photo of a mosquito that his community had invested in to attract tourists to this remote village. When I questioned the wisdom of trying to attract tourists with a mosquito, he said that all they have up there are mosquitos and rocks and the townspeople voted that mosquitos would be a better draw for tourist dollars.
You can find Puvirnituq on Google Maps. It will show the caisse populare, i.e. the credit union, but not a single road. If you do make your way there, good luck finding fall colours. Maybe the mosquitos and black flies can direct you to some.
I started looking around the archives for some nice fall shots, starting with the files from my newer camera. I found a couple, but was not too impressed, and did not want to dive into the 12,000 images taken with my old camera even though I know there are some nice ones there. Pardon my lack of dilligence but I have a bit of the ‘flu and am feeling very lazy.
In the new camera files, I did, however, came across some pictures having to do with the word “fall”, in the non-autumnal sense of the word. Here they are!
Hope you enjoyed my gallery of “fall” photos.
See you next week!
