Autumn’s last evening



December 20th, Roxbury, Connecticut © Steven Willard

I hadn’t thought to make another image this fall, but on the way home on Town Line Road, I happened to glance in the car’s side mirror and caught a glimps of the moon winking through the bare branches of this tree.

Photographs can do that sometimes; come at you from behind when least expected. It sounds like a contradiction, but you have to expect the unexpected, or maybe be sensitive to the possibility of the unexpected is more accurate. We carry our cameras with us all the time not because we know we are going to see something, but in case we stumble across a potential image. We want to be prepared by carrying our gear, but that only works if we have our eyes and minds engaged also.
