Lacroux from Aubergenville, France

Ce matin devant ma porte,
J'ai trouvé trois feuilles mortes.

La première .../...
M'a dit bonjour en passant
Puis au vent s'en est allée.

La seconde dans l'allée,
Au creux d'une flaque d'eau
A sombré comme un bateau.

J'ai conservé dans ma chambre
La troisième.../...

Quand l'hiver sera venu,
Quand les arbres seront nus,
Cette feuille desséchée,
Contre le mur accrochée
Me parlera des beaux jours
Dont j'attends le gai retour.

D'après Raymond Richard.

My translation...

"This morning outside my door,
I found three leaves.

The first ... / ...
said to me hello in passing
Then the wind take it away.

The second in the driveway,
At the bottom of a puddle
sank like a boat.

I kept in my room
The third ... / ...

When winter comes,
When the trees are bare,
The withered leaf,
Hung against the wall
Speak to me of sunny days
I expect the gay return."


I think this poem that pupils learn in French school perfectly illustrate your photo.
Good day.

8 Jan 2013 10:35am

@Lacroux: You're right the picture and reading are highly complementary ... Thank you very much for the work done ... Very interesting! Best regards, Adela

STEED from D, France

8 Jan 2013 11:16am

@STEED: From the balcony watching the street ... I met this gentleman apparently disoriented with a few leaves around. I softened his insecurity ... Many times I've felt this way in a strange city ... First photos with my telephoto 200. wonderful new ... I've seen many things far too far for me ... A new appointment with experimentation. Thank you very much dear friend! Adela

Melocoton from Salamanca, Spain

desde tu nido en las nubes obsevas el mundo para mostralo a tu antojo, en las hojas caidas la experiencia de un vida que nos hace disfrutar cada dia , cada sueño,
fantastica tu y la fotografia, un beso

8 Jan 2013 11:57am

@Melocoton: Ya conoces mi nuevo tele... Es una maravilla aproximarme a las personas en un plano picado... Todo cambia desde esta distancia que de repente se hace cercana... Me enterneció el aspecto desorientado del caballero... y las leves hojas que el frío lanzó al suelo, cerca de él. Esta imagen me emociona especialmente por muchas cosas vividas día a día... Muchas gracias por tus cariñosas palabras (como siempre...! ) Un beso, Adela

Benkirane Thami from Fès, Morocco

La plongée l'écrase littéralement ! A cela s'ajoute son propre poids et le fardeau de l'âge qui le rapprochent davantage du sol...Les feuilles mortes lui font un clin deuil...

El pare from prepirineu, Andorra

Una mirada curiosa sobre allò que passa al teu voltant.
Una abraçada.

El peatón, caminando en la acera, mirando el piso, sumido quien sabe, en que pensamientos... Las hojas secas sobre el pavimento, como demostración del invierno... Genial blanco y negro y buena luz.... Un fuerte abrazo.

9 Jan 2013 2:45am

@Nelida De La Fuente: El trato era estrenar un tele nuevo...! quise probarlo desde mi casa... El punto de vista la calle y este humbre que esperaba a que llegara alguién... Me gustó su figura con unas cuantas hojas caídas! Muchas gracias amiga Nelida! Un abrazo, Adela
