Fall Colors at the Seattle Japanese Garden


BETTINA HANSEN / THE SEATTLE TIMES

From left, Butoh performers Lin Lucas, Sheri Brown and Joan Laage, all of Seattle, perform underneath the colorful maple foliage at the Seattle Japanese Garden Sunday October 14, 2012. The three performers are in the local DAIPAN Butoh Collective and were a part of the special activities during the maple viewing at the garden Sunday. DAIPAN will be part of the Seattle Butoh Festival October 22-28, hosting workshops, guest artists and celebrating their unique style of performance. For more information, visit daipanbutoh.com.

In the constant hunt for feature pictures sometimes we staffers overlap, as happened with Ken Lambert and I earlier this week. The foliage colors of the maple trees at the Seattle Japanese Garden are peaking in beautiful hues, and I photographed it Sunday, while Ken visited Monday morning. There is plenty of beauty to go around and it's always great to see the same place through two different sets of eyes.

This leaf, suspended in a spiderweb, has seen better days - but will be reborn next spring.
