On my home from the bus stop to my place the day before yesteday I walked through nearby Parc Oberthur – a relatively small park, but very charming with its lake and the old trees.
It is not only us people enjoying nature in here, but also the ducks on the small lake – being on excursion as a group of three, framed by the fall colored needles of the tree.
The weather is still quite pleasant – there was the early evening sun shining on the trees in their ornament of fall colors.
The park is a retreat for young parents with their small children in prams. I liked how the sun was caught in the foliage of the small tree as if the tree is in the focus of a huge lens, bundling all the sunlight in one little tree
and the perspective from below, what I call frog perspective, let us see the beautiful colors of fall in harmony with the blue of the late afternoon sky.
The late afternoon/ early evening sun is always good for long shadows, in particular of the rather thick stems of the old trees. I found this worth to take a picture. Then serendipity of the frequent photographer struck and the girl in pink shot in from behind on her bike. Thank you, little pink girl!
This dynamics needs to be balanced by the tranquility of the reflection of the bridge, made of fake wooden beams, which are actually concrete. And yet, they have their own aesthetics – just enjoy, don’t think too much.
