Stares into space like a dead china doll...

Autumn has always been my favourite season, but I can't remember ever being this excited for summer to end. Aside from the heat and humidity, it just hasn't been much of a summer for me. It's been one thing after another. Psh, responsibilities! I'm ready to relax and enjoy the transition to fall.

I took these around 7:00 on Tuesday night. The humidity was incredible! Bring on the cool evenings, crunchy leaves, and pumpkin flavoured everything!

Also, I'm still getting used to taking photos in such a suburban setting. I've never lived in an actual development before! When it gets cooler I'll start scoping out new locations.

Labour Day weekend is almost here. After Monday the tourists will all vanish, and the coast will be quiet again. Perhaps I'll venture out for some beach photos soon.

Oh, hi...

I'm back!

I started writing this re-introductory post at least five times in the past year and trashed them all. I could list all the reasons I took a two year hiatus from this blog. I could go on and on about why these photos aren't my favourite. But I won't because that's not the point. The point (!) is that I'm here, and I'm taking photos and blogging again.

I've moved a couple times since last I was here, and I've only been in my current place for a few months now. So, I'm sure I'll be experimenting with photo locations for a bit. These were my first try on the back porch I love having a screened in porch! The cats do too.

Speaking of the cats, we now have three! Here are a couple photos of them (they're excellent photo bombers, so you'll be seeing more of them). I'll be featuring some more of my favourite photos from my time away from blogging as I go along. If you're curious, I've documented the last couple if years pretty well on Instagram!

Arwen and Cormac. We got Cormac last summer.

Duke! We've had him for just over a week.

So, I hope you guys are still here, and I hope you'll stick around through this transition! I just had the busiest summer of my life, so I'm finally ready to jump back into this thing. It's good to be back, and I'm excited to see where it goes!
