Abounding Color

After the carnival-like atmospheres of Halloween and the Marathon, this has been a quiet weekend in Clinton Hill/Fort Greene except for the colors.  The Autumn foliage came late this year, but it is now busting out all over.

There has been some discussion about the etiquette of taking pictures of strangers.  This couple saw me taking the photo as we approached each other, and as we passed, I simply said, you make a beautiful silhouette.  They looked pleased and laughed.

I've been taking pictures of these houses in dappled sunlight every week.  Once the leaves are down, I will take a series of photos about the diversity of architecture in the neighborhood.

No post about the neighborhood is complete without a dog.

This lady graces the top of the security building in the courtyard our co-op.  I don't know her story, but I like her spirit.

This was a "mistake", but it reminds me of an artist whose name escapes me.

I enjoy your fotos of the neighborhood so much. We are looking so forward to enjoying the "winter scenes" at Christmas. I wish that my mother and father could see their old neighborhood now.

Beautiful - love the quality of the autumn light in these pics!
The last image reminds me of Dan Flavin's 'Monument' series, made with fluorescent lights (but I find the subtleties of green and yellow light in your photo more interesting! :)

love those cupcakes said...

I love this time of year - the colours, the light, the shadows - all captured beautifully in your photographs.

All lovely photos, Kate! I like the blurry Williamsburg bank photo ... it also reminds me of something I've seen before,

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
