Autumn Stepping Out

Couldn't get focused quick enough 'cause she was steppin' out! I sort of caught the essence of that with the photo--look at the diagonal lines of the back of her coat. She's got that vivid auburn hair that matches so the autumn leaves. She's walking south on NW 23rd, just past its intersection with NW Flanders. Notice the upward slope? This corner is just a couple of blocks from our place, and the grade has already increased this much and more. These changes in elevation make for a good place for me to walk, right near home. I am blessed.

I like it, blurry and all! The impressionist feel of it makes you focus more on the color-- the bricks, the leaves, her hair. Blurry photos are underrated... or maybe I just think that because I take so many of them. ;-)

I have a stack of blurries they're greatly underrated. Monet (or was it Manet I get them mixed up) made a living out of blurs.
Thanks for dropping by the otherday, I liked your pumpkin head photo.

I agree the blur gives it that special touch. Great shot!

Reminds me of a scene from a movie. The leaves are surreal.
