When this time of year hits, we get that big explosion of colour before the weather finally comes and washes it all away. Sometimes the weather doesn’t come, and it’s been a hot year, but now the rain has started (well, it’s misty) and the winds are blowing away these bright leaves (well, they’re falling off in a slight breeze) so I’m posting these autumnal scenes from a couple of weeks ago at UC Davis. Above, the view of the Chemistry Buildings, surrounded by red and gold. A very UC Davis scene. Below is the view directly opposite, of Bainer Hall, home of Engineering. Slightly less bright colour but still glowing with the themes of Fall. But in each of these as you will no doubt have seen, two different types of UC Davis fire hydrant, in the signature white and blue. November is gone now, and we’re almost reaching mid-December, and have I done all my Christmas shopping? No, still more to do. What does everyone want?!? I know what I want – for the world to look like this forever! Well maybe not forever, but at least for a bit longer.

The buildings take away from the natural beauty and casual activities of those passing by. Nice artwork, overall.
No they don’t, they add to it. They are part of the scene.
Sure they are. But, when you’re talking about autumn beauty, the buildings don’t fit. They are evergreens in comparison. They will be there til some unnatural force tears them down.
I think they do. I’m not interested in just drawing the trees.
So, you’re a landscape artist/architect. Well, I will just ignore the buildings and admire your trees and little people. :D
