Fran's Autumn Photos

Compliments of Fran, here are two photos from her walk. In this first one, Fran says, "Ever notice how leaves make an imprint on concrete after a rain? Kinda like Grauman's Chinese Theatre. Something charming about how they leave a mark of their existence. Taken with phone today on Connecticut Avenue."

Another image: All the flamboyant DC trees have succumbed to winter's call. Mounds of dried leaves everywhere...
To which Mary added: It's amazing to see the vacuum truck suck the leaves up - first workers with rakes pull them all into the street. They don't want us to put them in the street because they'll clog up the storm drains.

I had forgotten about Grauman's Chinese Theater -- reminded me, though, of an I Love Lucy episode when the Ricardos and the Mertzes were in Hollywood and Lucy and Ethel try to pry out some star's footprints. I don't know if there's still room for current stars, but here is how it looks:
