The fall berries are out and I don’t want to see them. An abundance of berries means a cold winter ahead, if you believe in folklore. This time of year is good for examining our beliefs. Is it time to lay some of them into the compost bin, burn them in bonfire of vanities or accept the status quo? Birds need the berries for food and that’s good enough for me. The berries did inspire me to reach in my archive “photo quote vault” on “seeing” quotes to make something new out of something old. In this case, a classic exchange between a famous writer and a famous photographer circa 1940. Some things thankfully never change but improve with age.
