Leaves for Leontien

CIMG1283-001

For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together.
For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.
 

~ Edwin Way Teale ~

 

Scrolling through the Google Reader app on my phone this morning, I kept noticing “Leaves for Leontien” popping up on several of the blogs I’m following. I have not been following Leontien’s battle with cancer myself, but I thought I’d contribute to the collection of Leaves anyway…

Friday My Town: Someplace Yummy

In Sweden we like “fika”, which means coffee or tea, usually with something sweet, like cakes or biscuits…

Friday My Town – Skylines

“Do you see prairies,  sky scrapers or something in between when you view your skyline?”

CIMG1323-001

The panorama view above is from today – a skyline I get to look at quite often, walking to/from the supermarket.

The closest I come to seeing a ‘prairie’ would be the football field on one side of my building, I suppose – and maybe the tall chimney sticking up may count as sky-scraper?

▲ Misty morning today when I set off out...

▼ Below is the view as I approached home again on my way back from the supermarket. (I chose to go round in a circle today, one way there, and another way back.)

Having a chimney on the horizon might not seem like a lot of fun – but it can be! (a winter collage from 2010) ▼

Another of my nearby skylines consists of the tall trees in an old cemetery:

From my kitchen window, the skyline looks different depending on the time of year ▼

In the winter, the view includes buildings that are hidden from me in the summer. Although I prefer the greens of summer … I also like it that I see farther in the winter! ▼

Ruby Tuesday: Autumn Tree

'CIMG1081-001

Somehow the view in the park is not quite the same since they cut down a lot of the “background” trees…

To be fair, though, photos from previous years were also taken from another angle:
