“It was one of those sumptuous days when the world is full of autumn muskiness and tangy, crisp perfection, and the air so clean and clear that you feel as if you could reach out and ping it with a finger, as you would a polished wine glass. Even the colors were crisp: vivid blue sky, deep green fields, leaves in a thousand luminous hues. It is a truly astounding sight when every tree in a landscape becomes individual, when each winding back highway and plump hillside is suddenly and infinitely splashed with every sharp shade that nature can bestow – flaming scarlet, lustrous gold, throbbing vermilion, fiery orange.”
~ Bill Bryson

  1. Fantastic, Susan! The colors! Love all the photos, especially #2. And what a great end, with the “Samuel Adams’! Bravo!!!

  2. Those shoes look like they’ve had a fun filled life. The Bryson quote was so perfect for your great images. I love Bryson’s books, particularly his wry sense of humor.

    • They probably have, Gunta, in a previous life..I just scored them at a local vintage shop 🙂 Hope to continue the fun!

  3. I love the shoes. Actually, all of them are perfection. I am so impressed though with how you always find the perfect quote or essay to go with your photos. It’s sort of like, what came first, the chicken or the egg.
