On Sunday afternoon we went to check out the picture frames installed by the Friends of the Public Garden organization. The low November light with the late-fall amber and russet leaves did make for a picture-perfect day suitable for photographing and for framing.
November is traditionally a dull time of year in New England, a drab brown and chilly transitional period between October's bright fall foliage and December's festive holiday lights. But sometimes in November the leaves linger in homey shades of ginger and cinnamon, lit by low sun like the glow of a hearth. Sunday was such a day and we made the most of our brief foray out. We obliged other visitors posing behind the perfectly situated picture frames, and welcomed the offers to return the favor and photograph us. We snapped a few more photographs and then headed back inside for a late brunch, not long before the sun set.
