A gate in autumn

November 12, 2005 at 7:30 AM

I learn a lot about myself by the photos I take, as well as by the music I play. I am fascinated with gates, especially open gates. I’ve been photographing them for years. Sometimes I walk over to a closed gate and open it, providing that there are no dogs or cows that might get out. Then I walk away, photograph the open gate, return, and close it. A gate is an invitation to explore. The woods in autumn also beckon to me with the promise of newness. As the leaves turn bright colors and fall to the ground, the scene changes and reveals what was there earlier, though hidden from us. Our vistas are always being renewed. We need only be open to them and be ready to explore.
