Autumn at Battery Park

Took a walk at a local park this morning. It was really foggy along the river, but the misty morning made the colors more vivid!

More under the cut!Collapse )

All the colours of autumn.


This is what the world looked like on the 31st October 2011 at 8.30 AM. Very Sleepy Hollow, right? You'd never guess what it looked like some three hours later.

A big autumn post full of fog, autumn colours and falling leaves.Collapse )

AUTUMN ALMANAC



From the dew-soaked hedge creeps a crawly caterpillar,
When the dawn begins to crack.
It's all part of my autumn almanac.
Breeze blows leaves over, mostly coloured yellow,
So I sweep them in my sack.
Yes, yes, yes, it's my autumn almanac.

Friday evenings, people get together,
Hiding from the weather.
Tea and toasted, buttered currant buns
Can't compensate for lack of sun,
Because the summer's all gone.

La-la-la-la...
Oh, my poor rheumatic back
Yes, yes, yes, it's my autumn almanac.
La-la-la-la...
Oh, my autumn almanac
Yes, yes, yes, it's my autumn almanac.

I like my football on a Saturday,
Roast beef on Sundays, all right.
I go to Blackpool for my holidays,
Sit in the autumn sunlight.

This is my street, and I'm never gonna leave it,
And I'm always gonna stay here
If I live to be ninety-nine,
'Cause all the people I meet
Seem to come from my street
And I can't get away,
Because it's calling me, (come on home)
Hear it calling me, (come on home)

La-la-la-la...
Oh, my autumn Armagnac
Yes, yes, yes, it's my autumn almanac.
La-la-la-la...
Oh, my autumn almanac
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.

autumn person.

i want dark evenings and cinnamon teas. i want winter boots. and i want reds and yellows and oranges, all over my city. all over everything. i want rain. mist. cold, foggy nights. i want the street lights to turn on at 5pm, and i want the leaves beneath my feet to be crunchy and cold. i guess i'm not a summer person.

Halloween party 2010 photos.

We had a Halloween party last night, mainly because Saturday is a much better day for partying than Sunday. Here are some photos of our decorations and food.
