Fall photos

When we first moved here last year people warned us about the winter weather.

They were right, it rains a lot in Portland in the late fall and winter.  At the time, a lot of rain and consecutive overcast days didn’t seem like a bad trade for months of winter, bitter cold and many feet of snow.  After a full year I still feel that way.

Grey skies and the diffuse light they bring are also great for taking interesting pictures.

Wet pavements are too.

Is it really fall?

I know it is fall — after all, it’s October 20th and the stores are filled with Halloween candy and other spooky supplies.  The days are getting shorter and the weather is rainy, cloudy and cool more often than sunny and warm.

Despite that, my roses are still blooming (I took these pictures on Sunday, October 18th),

and there are even buds on some of the bushes.

At the same time, the leaves are turning on the trees in the yard.

Miscellanea

I’ve been thinking about a post about what, other than food, makes a good restaurant experience great.  But that’s not what this post is about.

I’ve also been thinking about a post about the sudden, and in my opinion, untimely, demise of Gourmet magazine (we got our final issue this week — well, actually, we got our final two issues this week because somehow, in a fit of over-eagerness, we ended up with two subscriptions for the past six months and never canceled the second one because it was about to expire anyway).

But that’s not what this post is about either. In fact, it’s not really a post about anything in particular.

Let’s just call it a chance to post a few recent photos taken around the house on a rainy fall Sunday.
