Leaf Blower - Burien Parks Department - Burien WA

It’s all in a day’s work.

:  :  :


in the town of Burien,

a Parks Department employee uses an industrial leaf blower

to push fallen maple leaves into a huge pile

for clean-up.

:  :  :

As I was driving by,

the sun was behind this fellow and the leaves were soaring into the air

and drifting back to the ground,

while the light lit the leaves as though from the inside.

:  :  :

I parked,

walked into the park,

spoke with him and asked if it would be okay if I took a few pictures

while he worked.

:  :  :

I explained how beautiful the leaves were as they bounced around

in the light as the blower made them dance.

He offered to make a few extra passes

so I could get a couple shots.

He was very nice

and I was delighted with the results of his kindness.

:  :  :

The fall colors are about gone here in Seattle.

Tomorrow another storm front will come through,

with heavy rain and wind,

they should deliver a one-two punch

that will down the rest of the leaves


for their last
