Even mundane street scenes seem rich in color under cloud cover on autumn days. I saw the flaming yellow and orange of the background trees in the Ballard neighborhood and stopped to photograph them. Then I noticed the blue-green peeling paint of the rusting fire hydrant and thought how lovely the colors might look together. The vivid green of the lawn turned out to be a bonus.
