It was a Sunday and I decided it was time I gave my camera a good workout. I have been using my smartphone only to such an extent that I wonder if my Canon thinks I don’t love it anymore. This story here I wrote in January is no fiction, it really happened. Autumn is the time I enjoy taking pictures most, this blog was started on the second day of September in 2015. So, workout the camera got and here are the results:
The leaves have only just begun to turn so I hope there will still be more!
Quotes about hope are ten a penny. For this blog entry I picked two, both from popular series with the word “star” in the title.
I watch this office every day as I have for 40 years, believing one day others like me would walk through that door. That my hope was not in vain. Today is that day. And that hope is you, Commander Burnham.

A follow-up to my previous post, World in October–more October pics!
I like crows but birds are always so impossible for me to photograph. This was taken from quite a distance and I cropped it a lot afterwards, hence the weird composition.
Over the years, I’ve taken a million pictures of this tree from my living room window (well, not literally a million but you know what I mean) but I have never seen that many birds on its branches. Must have got lucky to catch them at a conference. Or maybe they’re just chilling after some big event, whatever that was.
Title of this post uses words from the famous Anne of Green Gables quote “I’m so glad I live in the world where there are Octobers”.
As is shown on this photo, the trees grow alongside the tram tracks, the tram stop is just nearby. These days, when I get off the tram and walk from the stop home, I take off my face mask when I’m on this path and I am hit with the smell of autumn. I would not notice it if I was not wearing the mask and I would not be wearing the mask if it wasn’t for the pandemic, so it’s interesting what these strange times make you discover.
Asters, as always. They normally grow in the front yard where I live but this summer the rental agency mowed it so there aren’t any 😦
I hope everyone reading this is having a good, or at least okay, October.
