Thursday Challenge: Autumn -

"One Early Autumn Day"
$50 Unframed - LUCAS GALLERY

digitally manipulated photograph by Mick Mather
A relatively simple theme at Thursday Challenge this week, autumn, with hundreds of ideas and directions to take. Oddly enough, I happened to be out with the camera during the very first few days of Autumn this year. I eat lunch, as often as I'm able, in this little park Downtown in the Armory Square District where this photograph was taken. Gosh! Look at the time! Lunch! :D

It's dinnertime here, almost, Iäll have some chocolate and then I'm off to my singing lesson.

I'm afraid to touch this challenge, because I'm in a lousy mood and I despise autumn.

That bench looks nice enough to sit on, but I bet it's damp.

this is a nice place to sitdown and enjoy the weather. Looks better than here in Holland

WOW! Masterpiece! As usual colors and combination are perfect. Once more kind of primary colors...but so elegantly...and uplifting lines. Very beautiful.

I would have thought that this topic is easy...in Finland it would have been..but try to find autumn in LA! :))

Singing lesson? You still amaze me every day, Susu. Sorry about your mood - that's the price we pay for drinking so much wine yesterday I bet! :)

The day was sunny, cool and breezy so the bench was actually quite dry!

griesmail:
Typically, the weather is probably quite like Holland - cloudy and rainy much of the time. :)

As always, thanks so much for the wonderful comments, Kirsi. I've only been to LA in the spring when, much like everywhere else, everthing is fresh and new and green! :)

I like the way you have changed the colors, pink and yellowish green all over the picture. It's very harmonious.

Thanks so much for this comment. Since the photograph was taken before there was any large amount of color, the manipulation to give it more of an autumn look was what I wanted to accomplish. :)

I like this pic too. It's somehow so peaceful and empty. I could sit there and read a book (and smoke a cigarette). Then I continue my way away.

Exactly! It's how I feel when sitting there - although I did quit smoking almost 30 years ago. :)

Sitting? I think you meant sleeping on it.
