All the Same

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
