Fall Foliage: A Mea Culpa

Forgive me father for I have sinned. Or rather forgive me father for I have complained unjustly. About a month ago, I mouthed off about the drabness of autumn in Paris. And while I stand by my earlier comments that a Paris fall is no match for the vibrancy you find in the hills of Virginia or the byways of New England, I have since found some fall colors to brighten my mood. So in interest of full disclosure, here they are for all to view.

Patterns on the water; these leaves in the basin of a fountain were swirling in a circle, almost hypnotically

Well, they are French, it takes a bit longer for them to get up to speed

There are still leaves in the trees in Paris at this time of the year?

a couple of weeks ago, I was walking around the cimitière du Montparnasse (no creepy habit, famous writers & artists are buried there) and the colour of the trees was just amazing!
