Last week of the season. More red leaves are showing up, and the temperatures are dropping with them, into the 40s F. At least where I live.
September 11 was not only the 15th anniversary for the worst day of terrorist attacks on U.S. soil, it was also a day of debris at home. Powerful winds and thunderstorms. Dark skies during the day, and, for some odd reason, the ground was dry in the afternoon.
Most of the greens are still mostly green. Maybe not quite verdant now, but in the green range.
And the digital lens on the smartphone camera is still too sensitive.
The flowers at USM Portland are still vibrant.
Yes, after months of virtual solitude, I finally got off the property. The main impetus: uploading large files because I don’t have inexpensive broadband at home. Unfortunately, no one seemed to appreciate what I uploaded… countless hours of fixing up music to sound much better, and… sigh, I guess I did it for me alone, then. (It was game level music, but still…)
The 13th at the library (and then some) was nevertheless an opportunity to take lots of new photos to complete the first half of the month.
The waters at Deering Oaks park have gotten a bit green.
…Don’t forget the birds.
Lots of birds.
Lots and lots, and lots of birds.
Well that’s it for part I. There are so many photos I want to share that I had to divide the ‘final days’ up into parts. Plus… summer ain’t over yet! 🙂
