of course, the closing winter wants to have fun for the last time. btw: there are also five new images in the glimpse gallery...
another street photograph, this day with participation of an animal. saw the flower pot - the abstraction of the net - and the blazing sun light. while looking and focussing through the holes in the bottom of the pot i additionally spotted the red berry, that represents, of course, the ball. finally the crossing kitty as the central figure completed the pretty funny composition.
the circle is almost complete now. in my mind's eye only just a few days have gone since november of 2012 when the first snow and therewith the harbingers of winter arrived in south germany. just unreal, how fast the winter has passed again. as from today the forerunners of spring will spare no effort to chase the weak rests of winter off. on this occasion they are well-advised to put the residues of last autumn away, too.

they might not always make a good subject for photography if you'd image them in their overall context. but if you handle detaching them from their surrounding and highlighting the peculiarity of your composition, the results will satisfy you very probably. additionally you can try to mix overall patterns with small ones - i especially like this feature in today's photograph of the green, straightly triangle-shaped hedge in association with the wonderfully coloured, patterned leave mass.
