Parklife (I)

By Jasper87  
"I get up when I want except on Wednesdays when I get rudely awakened by the dustmen (Parklife)
I put my trousers on, have a cup of tea and I think about leaving the house (parklife)
I feed the pigeons I sometimes feed the sparrows too it gives me a sense of enormous well being (parklife)
And then I'm happy for the rest of the day safe in the knowledge there will always be a bit of my heart devoted to it (parklife)" ...... Blur

Still waiting for Autumn although it is raining now.

Another one taken from yesteryear, these are London Plane trees and the colour is genuine, just a bit of levels adjustment and saturation. They were taken in Lloyd Park, Walthamstow which is currently being wrecked (sorry, reconstructed) by the local council to spend a lottery grant!

My thanks for your time and V/Cs on my last .............. Dave

wondeful light and colours. a delightful scene!!
I'm jealous, it rains every morning and it is dark when I get home.. and I can see the coloured leaves disappear, no pictures

A stunning capture of golden autumnal colour. Like the way the colour on the dog mirrors the tree tones
Nice work Wink

A nice stroll in the park, its nice to have that close to you. What did you say, I put my trousers on, have a cup of tea and I think about leaving the house (parklife). Very nice I just have 2 klms to the beach also just a nice stroll. Nice colours and it looks so peaceful. Well done. WesternRed.

A beautiful splash of autumn colour in the park, Dave: the dog walker adds a bit of human interest and helps appreciate scale.

Beautiful colour in those trees and I like the positioning of the dog walker and dog walking into the scene. Well done on waiting for a colour coordinated dog to come along Smile A shame the sky is a bit washed out but sometimes you can only work with what you're given. I'm intrigued by the compositional possibilities using that graffiti wall at the end, but I know that wouldn't be to everyone's taste!
