Lomographic Color Studies: Shades of Autumn

We've finally nailed down the basic colors from primary to secondary; now it's time to study other colors, hybrids, and palettes that make this world more complex and non-binary. We run in gradients, and some mixes leave us awestruck, like the falling leaves of autumn.

The autumn leaf color, as people would call it, is a phenomenon where normal green leaves of trees, shrubs, and plants transform into various shades of red, yellow, purple, black, orange, pink, magenta, blue, brown, and other hues in between, thanks to carotenoids. It's a sight to behold that happens every autumnal equinox.

There's something poetic, mesmerizing when the world is tinted in warm colors, yet the cool wind offsets the sensation into a strange, lukewarm feeling. Everything looks warm, but it is not, and the golden hours have never been more majestic. The world becomes one nostalgic potpourri. After all, there is always the unspoken sadness of falling leaves.

The shift of colors that reminisce the leaves' twilight days: to see something so grand, we can't help but be humbled by nature.
