Thursday: 2D windscreen composition

The morning. 7.30 ish is grey. Light grey , ‘solid’ mist taking away the chance of a view beyond the edge of the road. Road visibility though is reasonable.
Along the main road the trees and hedges loom dark, shapes and criss crosses of line.
It is all very flat. There is not enough of a single light source to create a shadow, to give the shapes a form of solidity. The very dark silhouettes against a flat neutral background . I am driving through a picture. My bubble has dimensions and volume, so I am not part of the picture No rather I am driving along the road and at each side someone has left their versions of the road side. Pictures. Flat.

I open my windows .. It is cold.. But the road noise rushes in and the improbability of those pictures disappear.
