Autumn postcard

Epping Forrest

Some photos taken during the weekend when I wandered into Epping Forrest with some Flickr peeps. It was a gorgeous day and I didn’t take as many photos as I should being happy to soak in the atmosphere. My grandmother used to have a gigantic print of a European forrest in autumn and when I was younger I used to wonder what it would be like to splash around among the scattered leaves.

The answer a dozen or more years later is…muddy.

Three little mushrooms are we

Halloween and November

Halloween Pumpkins

Happy Halloween to those who celebrated. This is probably the first year that I actively participated thanks to a Halloween loving house mate. In any case, the pumpkins were carved, guests were invited and it was a whole lot of fun eventhough we didn’t get any kiddies trick or treating in our direction.

November is here and the weather has completely turned. I’m getting flash back from my first visit in London where everyday was gray, windy and cold. Being outside was asking for misery, but being tourists we felt obliged to go out and fight the rain to go sight seeing. It’s definitely much nicer having a home and being able to escape the weather from inside a pub.

The weather was a really good incentive for me to finish my scarf and any other projects I currently have on hand.

This is the first day of my life
Swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed
They’re spreading blankets on the beach

Bright Eyes – First Day of My Life

Thanks to all for the birthday wishes, particularly mum for forgetting about the time difference and woke me up with several missed calls at 3AM in the morning.

A birthday is a rather odd celebration.  Other than celebrating the fact  that one has managed to reach another year by avoiding being struck by lightning, run over by a bus or fallen down the stairs (woops did that already) not quite sure what to make of it really.

More importantly, I didn’t realise the D90 is not supported by Aperture as yet!
