Walking through the wood, the patter of rain drops on the leaves, the earthy sweet smell of the damp earth and the fallen leaves, the slight bite of the weather on your cheeks; this is fall in Oregon. Things slow down a bit with reasonable caution as the ground gets a little bit slippery and, with that relaxed pace, we take in the change of seasons. While the aspens have lost their leaves weeks ago the maples are climbing to their foliage, unwilling to admit defeat. I like their defiance but am ready for a bit more color so until then I am focusing on black and white.
