Sidewalk tourism: my favorite maple

Of all the trees I photographed this fall — this was my favorite maple. It's somewhere in Saline, MI. Of course, I don't live in Saline, and I'm one of those people who is terrible with street names, so, I know where it is, and yet I have no idea where it is...

Anyhow, I was mesmerized by this tree. Standing under it and photographing it was a sublime experience, even if it did happen to be really really cold that day.







I would like to thank Hilary at The Smitten Image : )
for being featured on her blog post: Three Photos and the Posts of the Week

Thanks!

Please excuse me if it takes me a day to make rounds with comments. I've been working on a time consuming project this week, complete with a number of "5 hours of sleep" days. I am exhausted. Fortunately, it should be done today (I hope). So, take a nap for me : )

Some of my favorite maple shots were on Maple Ave. of a town I was speaking at. I had gotten there early and took a stroll with my pooch that goes everywhere.I laughed when I got about 6 shots off and looked at the street sign.

So pretty and airy now that most of the leaves have abandoned its limbs. Thanks for the shout out, Sarah.. I hope you catch up on your sleep soon. :)

Hi Sarah, Good Luck with your project... Sounds like you have really been busy.

I love the Maples in Fall also. I recently posted a photo of the maple in our front yard. It was very red and so pretty....

Have a great weekend, and try to get some REST.
Hugs,
Betsy

There's something about autumn colors that are hard to beat.
