One of the advantages of spending so much time staring at trees as that I am acutely aware of the seasons and the early autumn leaves. Even before our turn to fall, I noticed autumnal hues of orange and red on trees. I mentioned this last week to a friend who lives in foggy San Francisco, commutes on a tree-less highway and works in an office. She had no idea that the trees were already showing signs of change. Evidently, she doesn’t spend much time admiring arboreal beauty. I, in my road to 3D, spend a lot of time starting at trees, especially when I am in a moving vehicle, preferably not one I am driving.
