Just passing by

I was taking a brisk walk (it was cold and windy) down Main Street in Woodbury; late afternoon. I’ve been on the lookout for images that convey a sense of the season. You know, how to depict late Fall now that the leaves have left the trees and the pumpkins have begun to rot. What now?

The climbing vine had died back after the first hard freeze making it easy to see the bare vine clinging to the weathered brick; the peeling paint revealing patches of red-brown that mimicked the dead vine leaves. The sun was lighting up the yellow siding as accent to the brick, in both texture and color. It implies Fall more than says it and that was enough for something I saw just passing by.
