Downtown Portland, Oregon – Autumn 2009



This show was taken with the Nikon L16 – f2.8, 1/148 sec, ISO-129, 6mm fl.  Late October, it seemed that every flat surface in downtown Portland was carpeted in leaves… an autumnal rainbow of colors.

The vehicle turn-around in front of ‘Black Beauty’ was devoid of both its usual parade of automobiles and fall foilage… save for this solitary leaf.  I liked the juxtaposition of the points and curves of the yellow leaf against the straight lines and angles of the red brick.  I did a very tight crop and pushed the contrast a bit to bring out the grains of sand in the grout between the pavers.
