proud Autumna mocks
winter’s icy bitter breath
with her sweet colors
This young woman walked in front of my camera at the Venetian Days in Ludwigsburg in September 2010. It was the right mixture of skilled setting up (so that the colors of the fall trees would be in the background of the picture) and a bit of luck.
I took hundreds of pictures that day and on into the evening, but when I got home and saw this picture, I knew it had to be part of this exhibition. A few days after I took it, I went back to Ludwigsburg (10 km north of Stuttgart) and found her again. I asked her permission to use the picture and was graciously given permission. I wonder if she kept my card and went to see herself at the exhibition...
