Morning walks. When the light is low. When things turn a little magical.
That’s the prose. Here’s what really happened.
We had a little rain followed by a fairly strong breeze a couple of days ago. Any leaves that were hanging on for dear life were knocked down by the combination of water and wind. There were leaves everywhere. If they fell onto a car, they stuck to it. I had a great time photographing leaves, water, cars, reflections and so on. I even appear in a couple of the pictures. As I was editing them, I saw for the first time in the clear light of day, just how old I look. Uuuuugh.
You’ll see more of my take as the week rolls on. You may or may not see me. I’ll think on it.
The picture. I just stuck the phone down on one end of the car’s trunk and took the picture. The glow and mystery were added later in post production. I know people try to make the case that everything should come out of the camera as it was photographed. I won’t go into all the justifications for why that is wrong, except to say that it is wrong and very creatively limiting.
