like string and brown paper



days dim, and leaves let reluctantly go, but little says "autumn" to me as clearly as the unmistakable conclusion of sidewalk-café season.


i'll be meeting an old friend - er, acquaintance - saturday evening for dinner and my gloved fingers will be firmly crossed for a table at the back of the restaurant, as far away from the fall draughts and the chill as possible.

  1. ~the top shot really grabs my eye; subtle light that is not over dramatic, and the curves from the subject matter really please the eye~

  2. The strange thing is, when I saw the pictures.... the first thing that came up in my head was "System." --- Seems so programmed ;)

  5. "Summer is over, I can count the cars..." -- from "Footprints," a Squeeze song.
    Lynn, these two shots are great. I love the folds in the first one, and the second one reminds me of withdrawal into the fetal position...
    And to think, it was only a couple weeks ago you wrote about the glories of autumn. These are so wistful. How wonderful life is in all its facets.

    I have never realized that papers make me feel autumn, romantic and sentimental.

  8. An interesting distinction, lynn, between friend and acquaintance. I wonder how we would variously quantify it. And yet, when we introduce someone, we invariably say "... and this is my friend ... ".

  9. I really love the first shot, but the brown tones in each one really gives the sense of a fading season. Beautiful!
