Autumn Harvest

It is something of a masterpiece, stealing in quietly after the final days of an Indian summer, filling late September with its tinted light. It withers the leaves on the sycamore; reddens ripening apples. In October it is burnt umber and fire maple. Pumpkins blush, red-orange in the sun. Vines curl and decay in the field. And grapes, in a once royal hue, rot amongst the leaves that turn from green to dust. It is a season of life and languish, autumn. But how beautiful things are just before they fade.

I liked your photos - very autumnal; although the colours aren't too bright, but who says that autumn can't be just like that? Really soft and warm.

Really love the photo of the girl holding the pumpkin.
It's just the perfect mix of colours(from orange to brown) for the season: her top, her hair, the background...
ThanX!

Your styling, photography, copy, and aesthetic are phenomenal. How are the editors of Martha Stewart Inc. not clamoring for your work? Please keep it up, visiting your blog is even better than reading my favorite magazine cover to cover.
