Fading colours...

Yesterday, between finishing a DIY project and editing images, I popped out to quickly run some errands. It was still sunny and warm, but somehow the air had a certain chill to it and I thought that I could smell Autumn - if that makes sense. The slight crisp and damp smell that comes from fallen leaves and the haziness in the light that seems to have been around for a few days now are a pretty sure sign that summer is on its way out. To put it in a nicer way, I should call it Indian summer I guess.

That reminded me of these pictures I had taken a couple of weeks back. Even then I was looking outside and thinking about how the vivid colours of summer were fading away, how nature was slowly turning and I somehow wanted to capture that feeling in a picture. I wanted to put fading colours and textures together that remind me of the end of summer. The haziness, the flowers that have dried, the crispness and fragility. Trying to put something based upon a feeling into an image is a bit of a challenge, but one I enjoy. Of course I don't know whether it makes any sense to anyone but me, but that's ok.

And of course I'm aware that this is the second egg carton in a row, but that's the thing about blogging "from the gut", in a spontaneous manner, not to a strict schedule and about things that happen around me: it's not always completely neat, controlled and planned out. Just like in life, repeats do happen even if they look slightly different…
