Summer Lapsed Away

avatar
(Edited)

As imperceptibly as grief

The summer lapsed away,
Too imperceptible, at last,
To seem like perfidy.
A quietness distilled,
As twilight long begun,
Or Nature, spending with herself
Sequestered afternoon.
The dusk drew earlier in,
The morning foreign shone,
A courteous, yet harrowing grace,
As guest who would be gone.

And thus, without a wing,
Or service of a keel,
Our summer made her light escape
Into the beautiful.

- Emily Dickinson

Have you heard of the “Colour / Black & White” photography community? The community was started in July by the talented @daveks and is a playground for those of us who enjoy editing our photographs to black and white, as well as the option of selective color.

This is my first post to the new community.

Also tagging the talented host of the #monochromemonday hashtag, the one-and-only awesome @old-guy-photos as well as the lovely @dswigle who hosts the #alwaysaflower hashtag.

Images taken with Samsung Galaxy Note8 smartphone and edited using Samsung Galaxy photo editing tools and Snapseed

You captured everything going for the glory, Nina! @ninahaskin Happy Day after Labor! What a fun community, n'est pas?

The florals burst with beauty along the words of Ms. Dickenson, who uses imagery in her words - allowing you to slip yours in. #alwaysaflower

I really like the selective color on the hosta!

Where has the summer gone? I don't know, it always flies by so quickly.
We'll be seeing the black and white so enough in the following months.

The contrasting photos are are interesting idea for a community. I'm sure this will take off like a rocket.
