Waltzing Autumn

BILL VAUGHN: "Suburbia is where the developer bulldozes out the trees, then names the street after them."

PHOTOGRAPHER'S JOURNAL: I made a point of getting back to Red Hook to catch Meadow Brook Farm as the season changed.

A Place to Swing

They resign themselves to slopes beneath and 
slowly embrace the earth. 

They rotate the sky above their heads and 
mark each year with a ring. 

They bend with the wind, change garments with the seasons, and 
strive to reach the sun. 

Beneath their canopies are places to dally,  but 
trees are time's watchmen. 

How many lifetimes have these ancient maples and these old barns been 
dancing here?
