Photographs In Warm Colors


When you think of the fall and winter seasons, you image colors that induce warmth.

Shades of gold, brown, red, orange and yellow.

Fall and winter are my two favorite seasons.

And do you know why?

Fall and winter are weightier and slower-moving seasons. And I, being the astrological sign of Libra, which is an air sign; having a tendency to be all over the place like the wind, find that I feel more grounded and relaxed during fall and winter because they contain the polarity of my personality. So they compliment me; promoting balance. And I also feel more connected to nature during these two season.

Where most people feel like hibernating during fall and winter, I actually feel like being outside because not only do I feel calmer and more social, but I also feel more creative and focused.

And believe it or not, summer is when I feel the most lethargic, unfocused and unmotivated. Summertime actually grates on my nerves.

Yeah, I know…I’m weird.

Anyway, over the past five months, I’ve been out and about snapping photographs during my two favorite seasons, and thought that I would put together a post of images containing colors of warmth.

Please enjoy…


1) An interior design store widow in Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia


2) Inside one of the walkways through City Hall


3) Aero Memorial to World War I Aviators


4) A bridal store window on 13th Street (Love that center wedding gown!)


5) Looking through the window of a cafe' in Old City


6) A home furnishing store on Pine Street


7) Two weeks ago, I went to the opera and took this shot inside the Academy Of Music on Broad Street

*this opera house was the one used in the movie, The Age Of Innocence.


8) The HUGE crystal chandelier hanging from the ceiling


9) I took this shot while lying my camera on the cement wall. It is a view down Locust Street, off Rittenhouse Square.

Thanks a bunch for taking this little tour through my photographs in warm colors.

Happy Monday!

  1. I love all the photos Ron but the colours on the two Academy of Music shots are just fabulous!

  2. You are NOT weird, Ron. I feel exactly the same with the seasons. Summer for me is uncomfortable and like you I get very lethargic at that time. whereas autumn creates (for me) two feelings, anticipation and peacefulness. It must be all that surrounding beauty that does it.

    Love the pictures, especially the last one which is a most unusual angle. Favourite though was inside the opera house, it reminds me of our Royal Albert Hall.

    Hope you have a marvellous Monday.

  3. ron that last photo is gold. love it.


    and as you know, i hate winter and fall. well i don't hate fall and winter might be okay without the snow. i can appreciate the cooler temps for running outside, but i rather be hot and steamy, like my favorite season: summer! can't wait for 90 degrees.


    keep clicking! nice ones.

  4. Ron I love the way to captured the spirit and the emotions that go along with your photo essay. You my friend have an eye for this. Thank you so much for sharing it

  5. Beautiful photographs, Ron! I love them all, but the very first one before the post is my favorite. Although the ones of the opera house are just stunning. I miss the fall and winter seasons like you get in the north because here in Florida you don't feel as much as a dramatic change. I miss the season change especially during the holidays.



    Have a wonderful week, Ron. And enjoy the season!

  6. Thank you Peal :)


    When you walk into the Academy Of Music, it's like stepping back in time because of the decor. It's such a stunning opera house!

  7. Wow...... I really like that first and last shot.
    And the Shangrila and areo-museaum memorial....which I just wanna enlarge and see the details on.
    AND....and and....wow--you're really good at this picture taking deal! Seriously--you got the light and colours like a pro!
    And considering it's a white/gray world where I am, both were sorely welcomed. Very well done, sir!


    I love fall--and summer and spring are fun..... Winter is a mindset all of it's own. LOL There are times I adore it and play like crazy--there are times I'm not so fond of it. But weeks on end of subzero temps aren't my 'thing'. It's why having a 'project' for winter months is required around these parts. You'd go MAD without it.
    Now.....
    Fall--cool temps, colour galore.....flowers gone crazy, harvest--PUMPKINS!!!! Bring me a sweater and the camera and I'll see you in December. LOL


    Seriously awesome photos, sir.
    You can proud of these!

  8. Good morning Valerie~

    "Summer for me is uncomfortable and like you I get very lethargic at that time. whereas autumn creates (for me) two feelings, anticipation and peacefulness. It must be all that surrounding beauty that does it."



    Amen! That's exactly the way I feel. Last year, I DID enjoy summer more than I usually do because it wasn't as hot.


    Thank you. That last shot I took about two weeks ago, one evening while I was walking around town. I'm trying to practice more with nighttime shots because they are more challenging as far as the lighting goes.


    Isn't the opera house lovely? As I shared with Pearl, when you walk in it's like stepping back in time because of the decor. They don't make theaters like that anymore.


    Thank you for stopping by, dear lady. Have a MARVI week!

    HA! Yes, I know. Most people LOVE summertime. I hope we have a summer like last year, because the heat wasn't too bad.

  11. Hola Denise~

    Thank you :) I took that first shot yesterday while I was walking home from the grocery store. And it's funny because it looks more like a fall scene rather than winter.

    "I miss the fall and winter seasons like you get in the north because here in Florida you don't feel as much as a dramatic change. I miss the season change especially during the holidays."


    Yes, same here. And I didn't realize just how much I missed the seasonal changes in Florida until I moved back east. LOVE them!!!


    Have a wonderful week, girl. And thank you for dropping by!

  12. Hiya Mel~

    The very first shot was one I took only yesterday, whilst I was walking home from grocery shopping. That statue was sitting in front of an old home along Washington Square park. And when I spotting it, I grabbed my camera and SNAPPED it!

    "areo-museaum memorial....which I just wanna enlarge and see the details on."

    The detail on that one is stunning! I wish I could have gotten closer to that one, but the only way you can take the photographs is from ground level, so I used my zoom feature.

    "AND....and and....wow--you're really good at this picture taking deal!"

    Thank you for your supportive words. I'm learning more and more as the years go by. Practice...practice...practice.

    And might I say, you're photos are AWESOME! Often times I see your photographs and think they should be in a magazine, because you have such an eye!

    "Winter is a mindset all of it's own. LOL There are times I adore it and play like crazy--there are times I'm not so fond of it. But weeks on end of subzero temps aren't my 'thing'."

    Yes, and you've had a VERY cold winter this year so far. Here it's been cold (not as cold as where you are), but have had very little snow. I'm hoping we get more in March :)

    "Fall--cool temps, colour galore.....flowers gone crazy, harvest--PUMPKINS!!!!"



    HA! Don't you ADORE fall?????


    Thanks a bunch for stopping by, dear lady. Have a most awesome week!

  13. I feel the same about fall and winter, Ron. I'm not a big summer person, especially when it gets into July when the heat is unbearable. Interesting to read your feelings about why you prefer fall and winter. It actually makes sense.


    Your photographs are really beautiful. And as Dave said in his comment, they do capture the spirit and emotions of your words and the seasons. I like how you capture the sunlight cascading through the window in your 5th photo because I could feel the warmth. And that last shot is amazing. I love the sharp focus against the blurred background.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Such enjoyable pictures, Ron. Those theatre photos are fabulous! Hard to get a good photo inside a place like that without mega equipment. I just love the grandiosity of city theaters. Cleveland has some great ones.

    I actually love the wedding gown on the right. Halter dresses are my thing and rare in a wedding dress. Gorgeous.

    " I'm not a big summer person, especially when it gets into July when the heat is unbearable."



    OMG...July moving into August is the pitts! And when I lived in Florida, the heat can be bad even through September - ugh!


    Thank you for your kind and supportive words, buddy. That last shot was a shot in the dark because I played around with the light setting, but wasn't quite sure what I was doing. I actually didn't see the sharp and blurred focus through the lens, but it ended up coming out that way - HA!

  16. Thank you, Bijoux :)

    "Hard to get a good photo inside a place like that without mega equipment. I just love the grandiosity of city theaters. Cleveland has some great ones."

    With the theater photos, I adjusted the light setting a bit. I took quite a few, but a lot of them were blurry. And it's ironic you mentioned Cleveland because I've never been there but blog with a girl from there and whenever she shares photos, it reminds me a lot of Philly.

    "I actually love the wedding gown on the right. Halter dresses are my thing and rare in a wedding dress. Gorgeous."



    You're right....RARE in a wedding dress. That bridal store makes custom made dresses and they are sooooooooo expensive!

    LOVE the Academy of Music shot and the last one of the steps. Beautiful!! Your photography skills just keep on getting better and better.



    I can't say I agree with you about winter, though I do love autumn. Winter just makes me very, very lazy. I don't want to do anything but sit in my chair with my feet up, and if it weren't for the dogs I might not go out at all!!



    Summer, I love. Except, of course, when it's stiflingly or scorchingly hot. Give me an English summer day of about 24 or 25 Celsius with a gentle breeze and I'm in heaven - especially if I can be by the sea or in the country!

    Yes, there are many people who feel the same as you. Isn't it something how we all feel different about the different seasons? And thank god we have different seasons because then it makes the ones we LOVE even more special.

    "Summer, I love. Except, of course, when it's stiflingly or scorchingly hot. Give me an English summer day of about 24 or 25 Celsius with a gentle breeze and I'm in heaven - especially if I can be by the sea or in the country!"



    Actually, last summer I didn't mind at all because it wasn't too, too hot.


    And yes, agree....the sea is a wonderful place to be when there's a beautiful breeze. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!

  19. You're not weird, Ron! Of maybe you are weird...but if you are, then I am too. I mean, I don't glue on fake chest hair, but I also feel more lethargic in summer, and enjoy the fall and winter months most of all. Everybody around here is excited that spring is right around the corner, but I'm like, yawn. Bring on the pumpkins!

    "I mean, I don't glue on fake chest hair, but I also feel more lethargic in summer, and enjoy the fall and winter months most of all."

    Bwhahahahahahaha! OMG...that cracked me up, man!!!

    "Everybody around here is excited that spring is right around the corner, but I'm like, yawn. Bring on the pumpkins!"

    It's the same here. People here have been in the grumpiest moods because they are so over winter. But honestly, this winter has not been bad at all. I think we got ONE snowfall this year and the cold only lasts a couple of days and then it goes back to 70 degrees with 94% humidity, so it feels like 85.

    Thanks a bunch for stopping by my winter-loving buddy.

    Enjoy your week!

    " I'm a Taurus well, on the cusp, but like the same but spring is also a favorite."

    I have to say, I enjoy spring as well. But it's what comes after spring that I'm not fond of. We used to have gorgeous springs here in the north east, however, in the past 10 years it seems to go from winter...right into summer :(

    "no, don't like winter much come to think of it, that fits my split personality I guess. :)"

    Yes, most people (except people like Mark and I ) are not fond of winter.

  25. These are all beautiful, Ron! And I like the variety you shared because each one has a different feel. But I have to say that the last one is my favorite. I love the sliver of blue sky in the distant in contrast to the warmer gold colors. Really nice!

    I have to say that I enjoy all the seasons. I like winter but am so ready for it to be over by the time spring get here. It's nice to live in a place that has all four seasons because it gives variety. Even though I enjoy visiting Florida, I don't think I could live there permanently because I need change.

  26. Great set of photos! I especially love the Aero Memorial and the glowing music center. And I'm going to vote for the bride's dress on the right (my right, not the store's right).


    I have to tell you, though, that THIS Libra is a huge fan of summer. My ideal temperature is 80 and I don't mind it getting higher than that. I also like spring and fall, but fall always caries a tinge of winter in it, which depresses me. I like me some heat!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hey Ho Robert~

    Gracias, buddy :)

    That last shot was really done intuitively because I had NO IDEA what I was doing other than adjusting the light exposure - HA!

    " I like winter but am so ready for it to be over by the time spring get here. It's nice to live in a place that has all four seasons because it gives variety."

    You're so right, it is nice to experience the seasonal changes because even if I could have it be ONLY fall and winter, I would probably get tired of it. I love the part of moving into fall and winter as we leave summer.

    " Even though I enjoy visiting Florida, I don't think I could live there permanently because I need change."

    I truly LOVED living in Florida for the time that I was there, but after 20 years, it just got old.

    Thanks so much for stopping by, bud. Have a super week!

    "And I'm going to vote for the bride's dress on the right (my right, not the store's right)."

    HA! That's EXACTLY the one that Bijoux chose also!!!! I DO love that one also because of the halter top. I love the center one because of the exposed shoulder part. And call me silly, but I love all that fluffy tulle on the bottom. Reminds me of a Barbie Cinderella dress - HA!

    "I have to tell you, though, that THIS Libra is a huge fan of summer."

    OMG...you're a Libra TOO?!?!?!? Holy shit, there are about six other people who I blog with who are also Libras! I know so many other Libras. And it's funny because both my mother and father were Libras too.

    Your picture of the memorial statue is one of the best photos I've seen this year. The angle and perspective messed with me for a second, lending an otherworldly appearance to an ordinary statue.

  44. HA! I actually should have shared what opera it was in this post.

    It was called, Silent Night, based on a true story that happened during World War I.

    And it had it's debut in Philadelphia!

    It reminded me a lot of the muscial, "Le miserables"

    It's a wonderful opera. And the way they made use of the set was sheer brilliance!

    Here is a link to the opera if you're interested.

Yes, my friend, we share this in common too. And, of course, passion for pictures! Excellent choices. I appreciate them all, however my fav is the last one. Just really like the angle and the distant blur.

    Isn't fall truly the BEST? And for all the reasons you shared. And I especially love that 'deep freeze' going right into winter, when the air is crisp and clean; having almost a 'bite' to it.

    "the bridal shot is very touching for a reason I can't define"

    It's ironic that you used the word 'touching' because I feel the same way about that shot. I always feel 'touched/emotional' when it comes to weddings. Perhaps it's the 'love' I feel when attending a wedding, because I'm always moved to tears of joy. Even if I don't know the couple very well, I still get emotional when attending a wedding.

    Thanks for stopping by, dear lady. Have a super weekend!

    X and hugs to you, Hope, Siren and Isadora!

  61. I was looking at the Bareket photo for a while before I began to notice the interesting brick patterns. That's something I've never seen before and I have to admit I'm more than a little curious about it.

    You are soooooooo intuitive because I took that shot BEFORE the show started and yes, the excitement and anticipation was in the air!

    Yes, aren't the brick patterns AWESOME? You just don't see architecture like that anymore, do you?

  64. It's a pleasure to learn more about you, Ron. When you said you feel calmer during these two seasons, I can't help but to recall how you handled all those crazy customers calmly during the Christmas sales therefore, its proven that you're a winter man :)
    Those photographs are great and I love the one you took at Locust Street.

    HA! You're right....I never thought of that :)

    And during the hotter and more humid climate of summer, I'm much more impatient.

    Thanks so much for stopping by, Zunnur. Always great seeing ya!

    Have a super week!

    "I am scratching my head wondering how I missed this beautiful post...I got everyone on reader now."

    No worries, my friend. But I'm glad you saw it because I know how much you love Philly....X

    "I never saw that Aero monument. Wow!"

    That monument sits directly in front of the Franklin Institute museum, right around Logan's Circle.

    "I loved the last one and what you did with that low angle under the streetlights A+ for creativity!"

    Thank you :) I honestly had no idea what I was doing with that shot. It was one of those times when everything sorta worked out automatically.

    Thanks for stopping by, Barb! Have a super week!

    X to you and D!
