‘Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower’ – Albert Camus
How true that quote is! The images below are by Virtual Image. They were taken against the vibrant autumnal backdrops right by where I live. The colours are so stunning! The photographer Simon brought along the amazing kimono’s for me to wear, adding such striking contrast and elegant style.
I hope you like these photos as much as I do!
I adore collecting autumn leaves from the floor when they are in such an astounding spectrum of warm, vibrant tones. At the moment I’m trying out some tutorials I found online on how to preserve them. So far I’ve tried flower-pressing and flattening in books, spraying with art varnish, and bathing them in glycerin. Unfortunately it’s impossible to secure the bold colour completely, that’s why I love to have these pictures as momentos, and be thankful I can enjoy these colours every year. I’ll let you know how my craft experiments turn out! 🙂 Here’s how the spray varnished leaves are looking so far…
