Looks like one of those intentionally twisty roads in residential or shopping areas that are meant to slow down drivers.

This photo does not evoke ‘autumn transitioning into winter’. - Curious as to what other users may ‘take away’ as the intended ‘theme’ of this image? After all, isn’t ‘Arta subjective experience ??

Yes. Which makes this comment:

This photo does not evoke ‘autumn transitioning into winter’.

...simply your opinion, as it obviously evokes the feeling of ‘autumn transitioning into winter’ for someone.

We agree @Strangerland 11:04am that “Art’ is subjective’, as are ‘opinions’. But the photo above is so dark and blurry, it could be from ANY time of the year.

More of a cycle, footpath, atop a river embankment, maybe the Tama River? For me, evokes coming darker, colder days. The clothes she is wearing, the (unnecessary) jacket for the dog, the long angled shadows in sepia light.

I agree with your take on it Brit, definitely showing colder weather, and that means which season... QED.

I sincerely hope that is not a road, but a wide path. She's risking her life if vehicles are allowed on that narrow ribbon of pavement.

Sunset in Autumn, end of day and falling golden leaves, sad thoughts and melancholy.

I didn't say it WAS autumn transitioning into winter, I said it obviously evoked that feeling in someone. And since art is subjective, you can't say they were wrong.
