Rules: I want pictures of AUTUMN MEETING WINTER if at all possible. A pumpkin in the snow, leaves with snow at the base, a snowman with some harvest vegetables completing his outfit. Anything that depicts the merging seasons. Now I know that some of you don't live in areas that experience particular season changes, which is ok, because for you folks I have an alternative photo assignment.
Carly's from Ellipsis, new photo challenge is When autumn meets Winter.
As winter creeps closer and closer the free water slowly gives way to the ice.
This is my dad. I took this shot on a grey, drizzly July afternoon in Montreal. I had taken him to a couple of cemeteries so he could show me where various members of our family were buried. True to form, I toted my camera along and tried to remember the experience through my lens. Barely two months after this was taken, we lost him, leaving me with a stack of disconnected pixels on a hard drive and more questions than answers. I often look at my pictures from this day and wonder whether or not he knew, or sensed, that his life was drawing to a close. They somewhat haunt me, but I still feel compelled to take the occasional look. Today would have been his and my mom's 56th wedding anniversary. Days like this make me wonder what might have been if the universe zigged and did not zag, and remind me why we should be thankful for having had whatever time we were given. #Montreal #Arthur #Levy #zl #family #everything
