Fall In Love Hamburg

I know I have.

[Repost from November 2020]

This time of the year is an undeniable masterpiece when it comes to the colors it paints everything in. Not to mention the harvesting which whether you’re living in or outside of the city, you can still taste somehow.

For me personally, that’s how it feels, when I walk home and the streets are filled with chestnuts, mushrooms and acorns. Vivid green shell, wrapped around this shiny burgundy-brown deliciousness, all yummy on the inside, waiting to be roasted, not that I’ve tried one up until now.

But speaking about harvesting, something seemed so familial this year. Getting to know this place, feeling a bit more accustomed with traditions and ways around, I started looking up for recipes with chestnuts.
To my surprise there are more kinds, some edible, some not so much. Yet, going down the street from my home with a weaved basket, picking up chestnuts, does feel like home, on childhood summer vacations.

Been waiting impatiently for the weather and my timetable to let me grab my camera and take a bite of this picturesque time of the year. Just about time, the sun was shining bright, only a few clouds scattered around and by the time I finished, rain was already back.
I went for one of those walks, where I sit around quietly for tens of minutes “lensing” at certain things from every corner. That is until I find my frame and perfect light.
Things like the leaf that bejeweled a white picket fence, with its golden hue and shape. The carpet of Oak leaves, with that sound when you walk, being all crunchy and soft at the same time, spreading your way as if they welcome you around.

All those leaves have been soaking up the sun as if to bring it in the Fall at our feet. Maybe it is my love for nature, but it’s hard not to see its wonders. I believe all it takes is heart.

All the love,
