First day of the month means theme day for the City Daily Photo Community. The October theme is Contrast. I choose this photo when Kenzo 'planted a field' of 200,000 red paper poppies in front of the Place du Capitole in Toulouse, on Friday September 4th. The poppies were remained until the following day, and had been given away to passers-by. The event is in honor of their poppy-inspired fragrance, Flower by Kenzo. There is a contrast here, poppies are grows on the prairie, in the country side, not in the middle of buildings. The red color of artificial poppies are somehow contrast with the brick color of toulouse buildings.

Canal du Midi in Autumn

A Song of Autumn by Adam Lindsay Gordon
‘WHERE shall we go for our garlands glad At the falling of the year, When the burnt-up banks are yellow and sad, When the boughs are yellow and sere? Where are the old ones that once we had, And when are the new ones near? What shall we do for our garlands glad At the falling of the year?’ ‘Child! can I tell where the garlands go? Can I say where the lost leaves veer On the brown-burnt banks, when the wild winds blow, When they drift through the dead-wood drear? Girl! when the garlands of next year glow, You may gather again, my dear— But I go where the last year’s lost leaves go At the falling of the year.’
