The Warm Autumn Colors of New York
December 4, 2010. New York City.
Living in coastal Southern California, there’s hardly any changes in seasonal colors. Trust me, I don’t mind that at all, especially when we’ve been having warm and sunny temperatures in the 70s this winter. However, it’s always fun to experience and see different landscapes when traveling.
The scenery of New York City is a feast for the eyes. I must have easily taken a few dozen shots just within a couple blocks walking distance. This particular image caught my attention because it was the exact impression I had in my mind of New York before having ever visited this magnificent city. Looking at it makes me smile because it reminds me of the first time I visited there back in 1998 — so much newness and excitement! The red and beige brick buildings, the fire escape ladders, the yellow foliage on the tree, all combine to evoke a nostalgic warmness for the senses.
- Look for complementary colors. This palette of red, beige, and yellow are the perfect earthy warm tones that I love.
- Look for a scenery that evokes your senses. Of course, this may mean something personal and different to each person. Capturing memories of your travels and experiences should be unique to you.
