“Autumn is a second Spring, when every leaf is a flower.” – Albert Camus
As I said in the previous post, I think that Kensington Garden is most beautiful in autumn when every leaf turns different shades of gold and amber. It is also my second favourite season of the year. Even though it is getting colder and darker; there is a chill in the air; mist and fog in the morning, I love how nature reminds us every year that there is profound beauty in decay, and that death is merely a transformation, not the end… that life is a cycle… and that nothing in life is meant to last forever, whether it be happiness or sadness… comfort or hardship… sooner or later, everything comes to an end. Autumn is a timefor ending, and preparation for rebirth.
In a way, I am glad that this year, winter is arriving rather late because we get to enjoy the golden leaves for longer, and I do not want to start wearing big coats and woolly hats just yet because at the moment, I am really into wearing sleeveless jackets and over-the-knee boots. I have a few of these in various neutral colours over the years, and what better time to take them out of the closet than Autumn?
So, this set of photographs is both an attempt to capture those vibrant changing colours and crisp cold air of Kensington Garden in Fall; as well as my version of how to wear a sleeveless jacket and over-the-knee boots.
