The Changing Seasons: Oktober 2017 by Max (Cardinal Guzman)

You’re probably aware of this already, but still I’d like to mention it: October is almost over.

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 read 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 were are the third annual Montgomery FunFest. One or two photos just can\'t do this event justice. But … hopefully a photo of me and my wife making a DSLR selfie with my pro photographer friend Frank Veronsky will.
