Every year I fall in love with autumn (I even love the sound of the word) around mid-September. The love affair usually lasts until mid October, when the temperature plummets, the sky turns gray, and days pass without a glimpse of the sun. In September through, you can still walk around in a hoodie without getting cold, the air is crisp, the trees start exploding with color, and autumn feels kind of fresh and magical. I might have mentioned it before, but there’s nothing like the quality of September sunlight. September skies have a color all their own. There’s a deepness and richness to the blue that you just don’t get any other time of year. I wanted to capture that intensity in the colors I chose here.
October has it’s perks too I guess…Halloween and bonfires and apple pie and pots of chilli simmering in the crock pot, to name a few. But still…I’m kind of longing for September. It’s my favorite month. Too bad it only comes around once a year.
