I do not like hot weather, and the recent hot weather led me to think about the fall. I took this picture on a walk to look at the foliage. Unfortunately the fall foliage in Germany does not compare to what you see in New England, but the colors are still pretty. I remember not liking the fall as a kid because it meant back to school. But as I attended college in New England, I grew to love the fall – the cool weather, the beautiful foliage, and well back to school was a good thing. Now fall is one of my favorite seasons. I don’t want to wish the summer away, but thinking about the fall helps me stay cool during a heat wave.
I was trying to take a picture of a bird, but i ended up with a very blurry picture. That picture inspired me to take this picture, with the blur intended. I really like the effect, as you can clearly see what this is a photograph of, but it adds a little more artistic interpretation to it. Like nature was painting.
