I took these pictures of Dan's mom's garden late one October afternoon. It was one of those perfect afternoons when the sun's shining and it's not too hot or too cold. One of those afternoons when you're accutely aware of winter's imminence, which makes the waning warmth of the sun feel just that much more opulent. One of those moments when you realize just how fragile life is, how interdependent we all are. A lingering quiet made the world stand still and I felt lucky to try to capture it.
