autumn leaves

no 
autumn 
isn't going 
anywhere

neither 
are the leaves

here
on broadway
they 
eddy
swirl
spiral
twist
collect
merge
huddle


they seem 
to
 prefer 
the closeness
 of 
delivery bike wheels
hey
leaves
they do what they want

  1. They do! Our two maple trees are on the west side of the house....many of the leaves end up across the walk on the north side of the house.

  3. Perfect shot. I love the perspective Daryl. But you know what I don't love? LEAF BLOWERS! OMG all over the place these days. What's the point of so much noise pollution just to blow the leaves from one place to another three feet down the sidewalk!

  4. In the city, the leaves look better on the trees.

    The song Autumn in New York comes to mind....

  6. Who doesn't love autumn leaves blowing around? So many reminders of being a kid and playing in the crackling pile of leaves. Autumn is such a wonderful time!
