There is no harm in asking

One day this autumn I saw this man sitting on a bench. I found it fantastic how the colours of his clothes matched the leaves on the grass behind him. He noticed that I was staring. I turned back and told him what I saw with the autumn colours, and would it be ok if I took a picture?

He smiled and said yes, of course. Then he suggested I should call the picture "Livets Høst" which translates to Autumn of Life. So that is how I got the picture and how the picture got its name.

It turned out he lived around the corner and smiled when I came by before Christmas with one copy for him and one for his daughter.

I did get an award for this image.There is no harm in asking.
