Autumn Foliage

Fall (Autumn) weather is finally here again and the foliage has turned a spectrum of yellows to reds. This photo was taken from the 4th floor of one of our office buildings in Queens this afternoon. You can see the faraway Manhattan skylines in middle of the photo.

So what are your plans for the weekend? I will be doing the walkathon for Race To Deliver at Central Park to benefit God's Love, We Deliver, a non-profit organization that provides free nutritious hot foods for people who are home bound due AIDS, cancer and other debilitating diseases.

A beautiful skyline. The trees look past their prime coloring but still nice. A good day for the walk I hope and the walk is for a good purpose.

That's a beautiful fall photo. We don't have too many trees in Manhattan, (except for the parks.)

You're doing a good deed for a great cause. I shop in Housing Works, a non-profit organization dedicated to meeting the needs of those living with AIDS.

I love your blog.
I'm a Londoner, and was lucky enough to live in NYC for 6 months this year. I miss it so much- it's wonderful to see photos from everyday I was there, it makes it seem less lost. Thank you, and good luck with the blog,
Sophie

I love the colors of the trees, our trees here are looking great too at the moment, lots of orange and purple hues.
I'll be cheering you on your walkathon, Bud! Great cause.

Those are some marvelous reds and browns - a palette so pretty that someone might want to reproduce it. Oh, you just did that.
