Remnants of Fall

Walking around the city of Boston in early December, fall is gone. Winter hasn’t arrived. Not mud season, not snow season. But on Commonwealth Avenue near the Boston Public Garden, the final fall leaves have just fallen. The trees give up their last vestiges of summer and go dormant, awaiting the warmth and longer days of Spring.

On the floor of Comm Ave, people have walked all over the leaves. The rain has beat them down and flattened out the shapes. The frost had bleached out the colors. There is little left, but I thought that the patterns were nice. They show the subtle hues of late fall before everything is brown. The sweet gum trees added their bright yellow.

So here are my two best out of 30-40 photos of the ground. I thought them lovely. I hope you enjoy
