Sometimes words are nice.
"A picture is a poem without words." -Horace
Fall is my absolute favorite season! I love the color that accompanies the death and hibernation of the trees and flowers. I think it is marvelous that such beauty can be found in the ending of a season or a time. There is much that could be said (and probably already has been…for what is new under the sun?) about this metaphor. However, I will not attempt to explain or interpret here; this is simply a celebration of that beauty.
I took this shot while walking through the streets of Rome. We were heading to the Trevi Fountain when I spotted this little girl just a ways ahead of us. I sped up and took a couple shots. I edited the photo to make her the obvious focal point and muted the colors of the world around her. If you have seen Schindler’s List, I am often reminded of the little girl in the red coat wandering through a world of black and white.
This is definitely one of my favorite pictures.
