I found these brightly colored leaves in the heart of downtown Seattle. I had wandered out of the conference I was attending during my lunch hour to look for a few photo opportunities. I found this tree in a courtyard of an office building. After I had taken a few photos, I noticed two armed security guards walking my way and they weren’t smiling. They told me to stop taking photos. I said that I was only taking pictures of leaves. But that didn’t matter. They told me I was on private property and that I would be charged with trespassing if I didn’t leave the property. So I left.
But I got this photo!
