Best of October 2008

Here in Santa Barbara, October is the month that usually reveals the transition from Summer to Winter.  We don’t really have Fall out here, and it is common to go from 90 degree days with no clouds in sight one week, to the first chilly, rainy days of the year the next.  Quite often the transition goes back and forth several times before Summer completely loses its grip.  The following photos are a subtle representation of the battle of the seasons.

  1. When things get dreary, it’s time to focus in close. These are great. Like the Spotted Towhee the best. Would make a nice wall print.

  2. I posted a new assignment on my blog today. If you’re interested, would like to have you contribute and anyone else reading this. 🙂
