Catching up with my blog posts – it’s nice to post something from my sunny September Dumfries Diaries images when it’s wet, cold and dark outside.
These were taken on my walk along Glencaple Road when we ran out of milk and I hiked to St Michaels garage to get some, with my camera in hand, of course. I felt autumnal and looked for the seasonal signs of both the nature’s ‘mellow fruitfulness’ and abundance and its fading away.
I use nature to ‘cleanse my palette’ after forays into urban and event photography. The blackberries along the road are probably not fit for human consumption but what a pleasure to watch them ripen! The blazing shades of the Red Cascade waxy berries draw the eye. Gossamer spider creations on the gates of Castledyke’s Park glisten in the rays of evening sun. The delicate dried twigs hanging from the top of a dark disused bus stop opposite the hospital look almost like a Japanese design.
Summer’s definitely gone…
