Changing Seasons October 2017

To quote Sue Leslie "Zimmerbitch"

October felt like a month in which I’ve been merely a visitor.

Like Joanne Sisco posted, the weather was unseasonably warm for fall, which meant that plans to use the weekend for family photos among the foliage were delayed and then delayed again. We were in the last days of the month, and the trees surrounding our backyard were still mostly green. But then it rained the weekend with the best foliage. Most of the yellow and red were washed from the trees. Then the winds came the last weekend of October and blew the remaining leaves from the trees. There is always next year.

So what was my October like? It seems I spent most of the month celebrating Diwali or October Fest or going on photo walks.

If it weren't for the photos in my Adobe Lightroom catalogue, I might not remember October 2017. I'm posting this entry for the monthly changing seasons photo challenge in mid-November because I completely forgot about the challenge. Perhaps I subconsciously want to forget October.


We welcomed a new member of the family into the world. My niece Raina.

We celebrated Diwali with family. New Jersey recently passed some relaxed rules around fireworks so we were able to have some sparklers this year.

For Octoberfest we did a few brewery tours. This one at Eight & Sand in Woodbury, New Jersey.

    Wonderful B&W photos, Khürt ? We also had to keep postponing our foliage photos because of the crazy weather and we never ended up getting any for Instagram. We put off the brewery trip for the winter.
