When late October comes, I feel like an autumn leaf on a branch, trying to hang on in the face of gusting winds and dwindling odds. I'm always hoping the dry, pleasant weather hangs in for "just one more week" (and one more after that...) to keep the outdoor opportunities coming.
Here it is early November and the trees are lush with colour - two senior sessions and a family portrait scheduled for this week and successful sessions leading to it.
Photography is great not just because I get to work in these conditions, but because of the fringe benefits. During a session with Eric, I had the pleasure of not only working with a friendly, agreeable individual, but I got treated to a free concert.
Ironically, this is a black-and-white image, so while it doesn't show the colours of the season, I think it does a good job of showing the feel of how I see the saxophone: jazzy, moody and sometimes stark.
