Autumn color: red leaves against a blue car

I took this picture about two weeks ago, as I was pushing my cart out of the grocery store. The red leaves against that blue car made such a striking color combination that I discreetly pulled out my phone and took a couple photos. Then I realized that the car’s owners were right behind me. Oops! But they were busy talking and didn’t say anything to me nor even pause their conversation. Just got into their vehicle, still talking, and drove away. Whew! I’m glad I didn’t have to explain why I was taking a picture of their car. Although, as you can see, I wasn’t really going for their actual car so much as I wanted that blue background for the red leaves. Luck strikes again. Because had I chosen a different checkout line in the store, I might have come outside a minute later, the car would have been gone already, and I’d have missed my chance to see this fabulous pairing of colors!

    LOL! Funny story. Striking complimentary colors that caught your eye. Prime example of what you would see through the tree leaves in their fall colors against a sunny blue sky day. During this gray pandemic timeframe a simple pop of color can be refreshing to lift our spirits.
