Autumn: an impermanence of color

Autumn is officially here but in Seattle we felt it coming a few weeks ago already.  I think this is why I am so focused on color right now.  Autumn produces a burst vibrant hues but this time of the year also reminds us that color is temporary and winter is approaching.

No better time to come across distinguished photographer Eric Meola's work.  I especially gravitated toward his photos from India where part of my design heart lies.  Meola's deep understanding of color results in powerful and inspiring images.  I am already eyeing his updated book, INDIA: In Word & Image, as an addition to my library.  Meola's work will certainly help keep me inspired and 'creatively warm' through the winter.

What inspiration have you discovered lately?
