Hello. 12th August and number 224 in the ongoing 365 image mega series.

Taken tonight at home.

I love Autumn. Yes, my wife, but also the season. And one of my all time favourite songs is Forever Autumn by Justin Hayward, taken from the album Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds. A beautiful song that perfectly describes how I’d feel if I ever lost my Autumn.

My hand holding a gold coloured leaf, found today. Levels adjustment with a high pass filter layer at five pixels. A black and white conversion layer was erased from the leaf and my leaf tattoo. A texture layer was added twice and partially erased from the hand and the leaf.

Canon EOS 20D / Canon USM 28mm-105mm lens.

Forever Autumn by Justin Hayward

The summer sun is fading as the year grows old,
and darker days are drawing near,
the winter winds will be much colder,
now you’re not here.
I watch the birds fly south across the autumn sky
and one by one they disappear
I wish that I was flying with them,
now you’re not here

like the sun through the trees you came to love me
like a leaf on a breeze you blew away

through autumn’s golden gown we used to kick our way
you always loved this time of year
loose fallen leaves lie undisturbed now
cos you’re not here
cos you’re not here
cos you’re not here

like the sun through the trees you came to love me
like a leaf on a breeze you blew away

a gentle rain falls softly on my weary eyes
as if to hide a lonely tear
my life will be forever autumn
cos you’re not here
cos you’re not here
cos you’re not here
cos you’re not here
cos you’re not here
cos you’re not here

I’ve been taking photographs since 1997 and I still love it. After a brief dislike of photomanipulation I now use Photoshop extensively on a majority of my work. People are my favourite subject and I’m always on the look out for new models, so drop me a line if you’re interested! :)
