A sidebar…. from the shameless commerce division

I love the picture that is the banner for this website.  Somehow, this image symbolizes how it often feels  when learning or trying something new — like blogging.  Clearly there is a pathway that can/should be followed, but often that pathway is partially obscured.  The way is not always clear; there can be expected and unexpected barriers.  And sometimes one of those barriers just happens to be a thing of brilliant beauty — like a red maple leaf that serendipitously attaches to a windshield.

Now in the interest of full disclosure, I must add that I am quite familiar with the photographer and his work — my husband, Adrien Bisson.  Although Adrien’s main focus at Adrien Bisson Photography is portraits and headshot photography, he is, as you can guess, a very talented landscape photographer.  He captured this shot on an autumn visit to Vermont.  And here’s the shameless plug from his proud spouse:  If you are interested in seeing more of his work, he is represented by the Loading Dock Gallery in Lowell, MA along with many, many other fine artists.  And, each 1st  Saturday, artists in his studio complex, Western Avenue Studios, open their doors to visitors.  If you’re in the Lowell area, you should visit this amazing collection of artisans.
