22nd September, fragile

22nd September, fragile

First day of Autumn,
I took a picture of a fallen leaf over the front of the car,
it wasn't until later that it appeared symbolic.
I was over an hour and a half late home from work,
the road was blocked due to a big road accident.
Five police cars, three fire engines and three ambulances were in attendance.
We sometimes forget how fragile life is,
and how easily it can be taken away.

The same accident affected us in town too Northy! Nicely thought out, and well taken.

Life is so very fragile. You captured this well!

brilliant, I thought it was falling from the sky and couldn't fathom how there was a shadow under it,

I thought the same as laine, at first. Poignant image. Has the still elegance of a Haiku poem.

From the thumb it looks like a yacht in the mediterranean somewhere... Life is indeed fragile, but thankfully we humans last longer than this leaf. Great image Northy.
