Saturday Snapshots #9


London Autumn stroll, October 2007

Apparently the depth of red or yellow colour that Autumn leaves attain is determined by how much sustained warmth the tree enjoyed during the summer.  Clearly, last year was an unspectacular but sustained, warm summer.  Clearly this year was not – this same avenue of trees near my house that was ablaze with colour last Autumn is a kind of mottled combination of green and already-dead brown leaves this year.

This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister.

    My name is Heather, I’m a fellow food blogger and also food editor for a fairly new women’s travel website, We are looking to find bloggers from around the world for our 12/1 issue to write about how their country celebrates the holidays – a write up of fun event, festive recipe, or something a long those lines. I enjoy your blog and was wondering if you would be interested. Unfortunately, at this point, our budget doesn’t allow us to pay a lot for the articles, but writing an article now would give rise to further opportunities that would pay better once we have a few more issues out. If you have any interest in doing this, please let me know, and feel free to contact me at heather dot rascona at gmail dot com.

    Oh, I remember walking at that park just before you reach Buckingham Palace (I wanna say Hyde Park… But maybe I’m getting my parks mixed up…). It was Spring and I’d never been in such a beautiful place before. It was also 2004 and I didn’t know the slightest thing about photography OR food which is why I kick myself every single day. Thank you for bringing Autumn to me– but it makes me want to go back even more! (I need time AND money, haha!)

    Now that’s an interesting little factoid. I have seen the occasional tree ablaze, but you’re right… most of the fallen leaves are just a muddy brown this year. Never mind… they still rustle beautifully when you walk through them.
