Autumn with chocolate wrapper!  Maybe the last of this autumn mini series … well, it was taken just after the end of meteorological autumn but, apart from the wrapper, we are looking at autumn’s debris – in fact this was again taken beneath the huge Horse Chestnut tree in Church Lane, like this earlier shot .

The chocolate wrapper drew my eye because its curved shape is taken up by the bright green leaf below it, to almost form a semi-circle.  And the carpet of dead leaves is richly coloured and glistening: everything had been drenched by overnight rain.  The small bright green leaves at lower left help balance the composition: cover them with your finger to see what I mean.  And there’s also the inverted ‘V’ shape made by the long, thick, brown twigs that intersect (one above, one below) with the right hand end of the wrapper.

There are earlier autumn posts here: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 .  Each will open in a separate window.

The first image in the Outer Suburbs series, with context, is here: 1 .  Subsequent images are here: 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 .  Each will open in a separate window.

  1. I see what you mean by the bright green leaves at the lower left (and upper middle). Good eye, bud, as always bringing my attention to that which did not grab my attention. 🤔 But this (these) pix also tell me there is a culprit or two that is not aware of the No Littering rule. Ugh!

      Glad I helped you “see”, my friend. Oh, there is litter everywhere here, and there is in some respects a cynical attitude to it. So, for example, it is always possible to see where the local authority’s recycling lorries have been, as they drop recycling litter. And there is also a cash cow, a ready means of raising funds for the local authority, whereby people dropping cigarette butts in the city centre are given hefty fines, while in other places far more apparent masses of litter are left unattended. Of I think about 8,000 littering fines handed out in the city centre, around 7,000 or more were for people dropping cigarette butts – but the litter problem in the city centre is far, far greater than cigarette butts. That’s life, lip service only to these issues. ATP xxxXXX!!!

    Beautiful shot as usual. I can’t help thinking though that it’s a sad commentary to the way we’re destroying this planet. Wrappers like that are everywhere and most of them made of non-recyclable materials…


    • Adrian Lewis says:

      You’re absolutely right, Mr C, we are destroying the planet – and in the climate conference in Poland, 4 countries – USA (Trumpland!!!), Russia, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait – vetoed the appearance on a UN report on the implications of a 1.5 degree temperature rise. And China is stepping up its use of coal-fired power stations. And, and, and …

      I try to look at things, all things, realistically – and as far as I can see, there is simply not the political will to prioritise saving the planet over national economic wealth/gains. Adrian
