How can you photograph fall with very few leaves turning?  Ah.  A human induced fall backdrop, courtesy of Art Start and the St. Rose and West End Historical Districts on Saturday.  I can see a fall weather photo in the future.

Volunteers of the St. Rose Historic District and the West End Historic District paint the underside of Highway 101 at the Ninth Street Underpass, Saturday Sept. 17, 2011 in Santa Rosa. Art Start played a big role in the painting of grape leaves as an homage to a winery the existed in the vicinity of the underpass at the turn of the 19th century.
