It’s that time of year when the weather abruptly turns cooler, I need to clear the fallen leaves off the patio at least once a week, the rain comes back, and I know I’ll be driving home from work in the dark for the next 4 months.
Kind of depressing, really.
On the bright side, I did get a nice shot of this colorful leaf today before the rain hit.

The oak tree that provides shade and comfort for our back patio in the summer also deluges us with dead leaves in the fall. Before bagging all the little annoyances up I though I might as well get a few shots of them.
This one turned out nicely.
I spent last weekend at the Community Leadership Summit up in Portland. My second CLS and my first trip to Portland.
Good conference. Nice town too.
UPDATE 7/26: I posted a few thoughts about the conference on my new work blog.
It’s (finally) that time of year when we start getting a lot of afternoon light on the terrace. I’m fascinated by the shadows the sun casts on the terrace, & now with the prime lens I’ve been having some fun with depth of focus shots against the patterns the shadows cast.
Our cat Tommy expresses his regret that Summer will be ending soon by claiming my flip-flops as his own.
On the bright side, it’s Rosh Hashanah this weekend! A happy and sweet New Year to all. 🙂
