Among the many things I miss about NY, is autumn color. However, the little bit there is here presents itself as a much lighter value than its surround. In the north, it would be less evident as the context is also a lighter value. These photographs are from around the corner. I was hoping for late afternoon sun that would illuminate the trees from the side, but no such luck...near total cloud cover. But, I did enjoy the contrast the remaining leaves on these plants offered.
