Weekly Photo Challenge: Fall

Double fall

Not much of a challenge today — it just had to be this picture. Not only is it very fall-like in terms of the season but I love how the leaf’s fall got suspended for a moment, just long enough for me to take a quick picture with my cellphone (when I came back later with the camera, the wind had helped gravity do its work.)

This birch also happens to be one of my favourite trees in the world. It is standing very close to our house and had been inexpertly cut and mutilated a number of times before we lived here. I had someone come to take care of its wounds and it’s still going strong. Since we moved here, it has added a whole floor to its height so it provides much needed shade to our rooftop terrace. And I love watching the shadow play it provides on the wall of our living room one floor below.
