I guess I was wrong a couple of weeks ago when I said our colors were almost gone. Most of the reds are gone, at least in my neighborhood. I ran across some sun peaking through the trees on the way home yesterday, so I grabbed my camera and headed for a local park that has lots trees and leaves (again with the leaves). I was able to hang around long enough to catch a few rays and therefore some shadows and highlights. Yes there are more trees and leaves. Not my department. I can’t change the them. I do light and dark, shadows and highlights. Gotta have some trees to filter the lights and carry the colors. I turned most of my leaves into the recycle place. The rest I use to make photos.
So the tall tree next to the steps has been on my radar for a long time. I caught it one year with bright red leaves. That has not been repeated in nature. I don’t know what the catch was, but I have not seen it that color since. It stays the yellow/green shades now. One of the other reasons to stop here was the bike racks wee just repainted, obviously a bright blue. That blue in the midst of all of the browns and yellows really stood out to me, just yelling to take a photo. All lines and a few curves. I converted one to black and white, and it looks pretty good, at least to me. There is one image of four posts in a field of leaves. I can say I do not know what they do, or why they are there. There is no obvious reason, anyway. I’m sure someone, somewhere, knows. They seem to be just there. I don’t know about you, but we have lots of rain coming our way today and tomorrow. An inch and half today, two and a half inches tomorrow. Stay dry!!
