There is something about the crisp late afternoon light in autumn that can make something ordinary look extraordinary. Of course the tree's shadow is what makes this image interesting, it adds depth and interest. I liked it better in black and white too. The only real color in the photo was the street signs which are the only elements I wish weren't there. They were less intrusive when reduced to black and white. I just like the depth of this photo created by the tree and its shadow and the balance. Maybe what I like best is the way this very ordinary moment is frozen in time. I can look at it again and again and each time I see something new or I see it a different way. I wish all situations could be revisited that way.
