Autumn Gingko Bokeh
The autumn color in the City of Trees is just gorgeous right now! I thought I would try some more intimate, close up scenes during a weekend walkabout in downtown Sacramento recently, isolating autumn color compositions. In Japanese decorative art, the ginkgo's distinctive fan-shaped leaf has carried symbolism along with its singular beauty: the ginkgo has been a symbol of longevity (the tree can live for a thousand years) and of a more profound endurance (four ginkgos survived the blast at Hiroshima and are still growing today).
