So, this is what I saw from the parking lot. I've processed it in MobilMonet to create a pen and watercolor rendition.
Looking down at the garden bed which borders the parking lot, the combination of fading asters and fallen leaves spoke of the final stage of autumn. It makes me want to go out and plant a few maple trees in my yard. (Then I remember the work of clearing autumn leaves!)
To many, the lure of fall photos is the grand view of a landscape, but I also like to search the ground for those small arrangements of leaves. It is much like the Where's Waldo images that are so compelling.
You may ask if I arrange the leaves. No, the enjoyment is in discovering the random act. This one on the concrete walk attracts me because of the stains from earlier leaves that have been scattered.
