As I approached the Speedway Public Library
on Saturday, I noticed that the Japanese maple
at the curb was nearly the same shade of red
as the car parked alongside. I really liked the way
the sunlight filters through the red leaves
and tried to get a picture of that effect against
the red car, with limited success.
For whatever reason, the way my eye
registers the bright red created by the sun
is not duplicated by my camera.
However, I was surprised by what caught my eye next:
all five cars (four shown here; the one at the front of the line
was a small Nissan) parked outside the library,
each a different make and model, were all
virtually the same shade of red. Huh.
