November is a collection of pictures I took in early November, 2021, in someone's backyard. Whose isn't important. It had just rained, one of those long-toothed fall days that's like an echo of warmer times, reminding you how much of the year is gone, and how much is behind you. This is the last time any of these leaves would fall; both trees were cut down the next summer. As such, I captured them while I could, in all their sodden beauty. Perhaps I would do it differently today – but I can't. This is all we have. I've set these images against some simple color blocks, because nothing exists in a vacuum.
