november unclasps her hair

she stretches and yawns
in the amber dusk

Your post and image is quite poetic today, lovely and warm. To answer your questions about Charleston, The Mills House is centrally located, and you can walk to just about anywhere interesting from there. I like walking around the French Quarter, along King Street and Market Street. Areas south of Broad Street, i.e. The Battery are beautiful as well. Waterfront Park is another pretty spot. Our favorite places to eat are Magnolia's, Blossom's and High Cotton, but there are many really good restaurants to choose from. You can take historic house tours, carriage rides, ghost walking tours, go shopping, but I like just roaming around, finding little discoveries here and there along the streets and alleyways :^)

I am just catching up with your posts during the past week or so, as I was away on a cruise for my son's wedding on a Caribbean island. I appreciate the comments that you left on my site. You have presented the mood of the changing seasons in Vermont very poetically, and please accept my belated congratulations and best wishes on the occasion of your 40th anniversary.

Lovely title for this paean to the amber gods of autumn as wispy branches sweep the sky!

Very moody. Almost looks like it was shot in sepia.

Beautiful shot!

Lynette said...

Very nice, which is an understatement. Exquisite, actually. Thank you.

With this awful wet weather here in Luxembourg, my hair during this morning was terrible . Now it looks better because I put some GEL in my hair! LOL
Hmmm crazy things...

Wonderful picture, I like a lot! :)

I think you may be a little more adventurous than me Brattcat in choice of edibles haha!

Jilly said...

Oh how lovely and so amber. Reminds me of a ring I'd completely forgotten about - had it stolen forever ago. Far nicer in your photo anyway...

So sorry, dear Brattcat, for lack of comments. PhotoMenton has taken every bit of my energy over the last two or so weeks but hopefully it's coming back now.

I'm gobsmacked. I wonder what December will do.

Love the ways you personify nature . . .I'm getting images of sultry sirens luring visitors into the forest.

You make it sound so romantic. However, it feels to me like a scene from The Blair Witch Project. Creepy.
