Autumn has so many sensations beyond the leaf-peeper variety. Some of those sensations crunch and crackle underfoot and have the bittersweet smell of decay.

BTW, my advisor at school recommended that I read a book called "The Poetics of Space" by Gaston Bachelard, specifically the chapter on "intimate immensity". If you haven't already read it, you might find it interesting --it talks about a quality of daydream and the experience of space that seems to have something to do with your photos as well.

Ana - thanks for the read suggestion - it is published online and i was able to read most the "intimate immensity" chapter...very interesting...

it does indeed seem to relate to my photography in as much as it deals with the idea of "... facts or impressions...that reveal an attachment that is native in some way to the primary function of...", in my case, the relationship of man and nature...

the ability to dream/daydream/imagine is crucial to teasing revelation from impressions...
