Taken recently, Marilyn? Is this a new photo since getting back from your trip? Someone must have planted these long ago for them to all be so big now. It's a wonderful image of the beginning of Autumn, very pretty with a thin carpet of leaves on the grass.

Though their moods are very different, both new tree photos were taken this afternoon, in a park just down the street from our house. (I never take pictures in Guelph and decided it was time to start!) It's an old park that has evolved over the years and has trees of many ages. We've lived near it for forty years, but I'd never noticed that these particular trees are planted in a line!

A nice perspective, Marilyn! From the left lower corner to the upper right! Tat's also, what I like to do sometimes. Well done!

Greetings, May

Excelent composition and a nice line (of trees), great work! :)

Marilyn Whiteley on October 13, 2007

Thank you, Tamás, May, and Wallace. And yes, May, it's interesting to me how the eye seems to like to travel from left to right on that diagonal!

Greetings from Canada, Marilyn

Hallo Marilyn! Isn't it strange how long it can take to see the beauty in your direct neighbourhood? Both the trees and the photo are really beautiful! Greetings, Anne

Marilyn Whiteley on October 14, 2007

Yes, Anne, it's hard to look at familiar things with fresh, new eyes! Thanks for your comment. Cheers, Marilyn

Marilyn this is a lovely shot. Greetings from Australia

Marilyn Whiteley on October 19, 2007

I thought I had thanked all of you, but it seems to have "gone missing"! Thanks for your comments on this quiet, non-spectacular fall scene. That is part of autumn, too. Cheers, Marilyn

Great composition and the light effects are perfect. Fantastic job.

I've lived in Guelph all my life until my recent move all the way to Breslau, and I have to say you both have a creative yet true eye for our fair city. And I remember those trees very well: I'm a GCVI grad and I remember running past them in some of our distance running in gym class. Very fond memories, very well portrayed. Can't say enough.

Marilyn Whiteley on March 13, 2010

Thanks for stopping by to comment, va3svd. I think this is a pleasant part of the city. We've lived just north of the park (across from the arena) for a long, long time, and our older son went to GCVI. (The younger was in French immersion, so he want to Ross.) Greetings from Guelph to Breslau!
