Autumn in Portland

Posted on | Shot on at 17:00:00

Late, late autumn I think. Shot deliberately out of focus on a brilliantly lit morning while I was getting ready for work from the fire escape outside my 4th floor apartment in the Grandview. You can just make out a bit of the cityscape beyond the immediate foliage.

  • the red in the left corner reminds me of fire – a nice contrast to the blues and grays here.

  • This looks like a painting, the blur turns the photo from describing to imaginative and artistic.
    Well done!
