A Day in Autumn

Canon PowerShot SX100 IS 1/60 second F/4.0 ISO 80 6 mm


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

Lacroux from Aubergenville, France

Comme elles tombent bien !
Dans ce trajet si court de la branche à la terre
Comme elles savent mettre une beauté dernière
Et malgré leur terreur de pourrir sur le sol
Veulent que cette chute ait la grâce d'un vol!
Edmond Rostand

My translation:
As they fall well!
In this way so short from the branch to the ground
As they know how to put a last beauty
And despite their fear of rot on the ground
Want this fall has the grace of a flight!
Edmond Rostand

She is beautiful this old woman in the middle of dead leaves.
Good day.
