Autumn stuns us with its colour every year and often turns the ordinary into the extraordinary as it does so. The Bus Shelter is a case in point. It stands by the corner just up the road from where I teach a class, and I drive past it every week without really taking much notice. Until recently that is, when the bright buttery foliage made me pull the car over and grab a pad of paper.
So often in our busy lives we say to ourselves “That’s great, I’ll stop and have a proper look at that next time I’m passing.” So often when we go back, the view is not the same. This is especially true in Autumn when, as is the case just now, we have a deluge of rain in a few hours accompanied by gusts of wind which strip so much beauty from the trees.
