Happy Friday

Sorry, but Summer isn’t over yet.

Here in the U.S., the minute Labor Day rolls around everyone is bidding Summer adieu until next year (I did that too once, live and learn) ... but eff that. Fall doesn’t start until the 23rd, so Summer is still lingering around for you to squeeze out every last drop before it says "toodles." Sure, the leaves are turning and the air is a little bit more crisp at night, but you know what, enjoy that!

Yesterday on my way home I observed the rust-glow of the sun flicker through the window of the rail. I was reminded that it’s that time of year where the seasons meld, where we witness nature's turn and man-made advertisements screaming for sweaters, boots, coats when all I’m (still) looking for is the perfect maxi dress to wear at least once to the beach. Enjoy this window. Savor it. Document it. Live it. Just don’t force your way through it or take it for granted. After all, it's too long to wait for next year.

These photos are definitely the perfect summer to fall transition scenes. The last one in particular -- the way the dress catches the light, it looks like the wing of a butterfly. Beautiful.
