Carpet of Leaves Baffles Motorists and Pedestrians in London

Oct 9, 2011 0 comments

At first glance, it looks like any ordinary road on an October day, covered with thousands of fallen leaves. Except the carpet of leaves has abrupt, geometric edges – made all the more striking by the patches of unaffected tarmac next to it. Careful inspection reveals the leaves are actually embedded on the tarmac

Motorists and pedestrians were baffled by the bizarre spectacle. It is speculated that the early fall of autumn leaves this season mixed with the scorching heat London suffered from last week softened a few sections of the tarmac, where the leaves became embedded after car tires ran over them creating a colorful collage that would probably last for many months.
