Autumn in the Park

Autumn Leaves

I stopped at the big park in Handen today. The sun was shining from a clear blue sky. Very warm for this time of the year, around 11C is my guess. As I took some photos of the leaves that completely covered the green lawn, two people walked up to me and started talking. The first one, a middle aged woman wanted to know a good place online for a shy photographer, I suggested flickr where you can be anonymous if you so wish. A minute later another woman approached me. She told me about a strange behaviour she had just witnessed. Ten birds where lying on the lawn pretending to be dead as a large falcon flew overhead. That would have been a photo with a difference.
