Autumn light in the Vondelpark

yellow leaves
I walked around the Vondelpark this afternoon to stretch my legs and to get some fresh air. I had and would be spending most of the day with a friend and I wanted some alone time, quality time for me.

She is not demanding this friend, not at all, but I have been feeling under the weather for the whole week now and I thought being outdoors and a bit of a rest would do me good. And it did.

The weather was fantastic, I keep saying this I know, but it is true. It felt like Summer on the 1 November and people were picnicking in the park!

It was in the middle of the afternoon and the sun was already slightly sinking: the light was soft and yellow and the shadows were becoming long.

Lots of people were out an about: walking, talking, cycling, photographing, sitting, reading, calling and cuddling. This man in the picture above also saw the light on the beautiful yellow leaves, but a woman passing by commented: "What is there to see?" She asked the question without even stopping to really look and I noticed that irritated me.

So I said to myself that not everyone is into looking, not everyone sees what I see and that is ok.

Meanwhile I was enjoying what I saw immensely. I hope you can feel that in these pictures.

Did you go out and enjoy the day in one way or another?
