Autumn Leaves: A Prayer

Reports of pipe bombs and the mass shooting at Tree of Life Synagogue yesterday dominate my thoughts today and bring me to my emotional knees in sorrow.

When the daily news is too heartbreaking to bear I am reminded of what Ansel Adams once said… “When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”

I made this image in downtown today while on a quiet walk with with my wife.  It is the warmth of her hand and the beauty of Autumn that restores my spirit.
