Photographer's Note

A pedestrian walks past a fallen leaf on Kossuth boulevard, marking the start of Autumn in center Europe, not far from Parliament house, Budapest.

Leaf fall (abscission) has several scientific explanations, though none is conclusive enough. One theory claims this mechanism happens due to Nutrition competition while another theory suggests it is a method of excretion as part of the plant's excretory mechanism (see http://www.sciences.demon.co.uk/wleaf02.htm). Whatever the reason, it gives much pleasure to many photographs to shoot a fallen leaf-covered sidewalk...
