On this walk through the rain soaked moraine, I wonder what it would be like to be limited to Aki’s color range. A dog, she can only see shades of yellow, blue and gray. While the remaining few willow leaves are a mooted yellow, I can’t find anything that shows blue. So the little poodle mix is limited to the black to white gray tones offered by a 1950’s era television. In sympathy, I turned all the photos I took into black and whites. Well, all but one. I just couldn’t destroy the subtle browns of this line of dying alder leaves.
