Delicious autumn! / George Eliot, 1841 | Autochromes by Rudolf Bruner-Dvořák


 Louis J Steele, An Autumn Morning, 1917

“Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that I love – that makes life and nature harmonise. The birds are consulting about their migrations, the trees are putting on the hectic or the pallid hues of decay, and begin to strew the ground, that one’s very footsteps may not disturb the repose of earth and air, while they give us a scent that is a perfect anodyne to the restless spirit. Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”

George Eliot, letter to Miss Lewis, 1st October 1841

Fascination of Autumn
Autumn colors were a very common theme for Autochrome pictures. These photographs by
 Prague photographer Bruner- Dvořák are however some of the most beautiful of their kind.
