Leather hat

Excuse for a short post no. 374: I’m off to see Shang Chi at the cinema in a few minutes, so don’t have much time to type up a longer entry. Sorry! 🙂

Summer hat

I guess autumn is here. My kids are back at school tomorrow, the radiators switched on briefly yesterday morning as I was getting out of bed, and the local photo club is meeting this evening for the first time since the summer recess.

I don’t mind though – autumn is my favourite season and I’m looking forward to later sunrises and earlier sunsets, the crispness in the air, and the onset of colour as the leaves begin to turn. Still got a few weeks yet though and at least one summery day-out still planned for this month.

As a mark of summer’s passing, here’s a summery hat that was in the passenger seat of the ’46 Chevy truck that I photographed the other week.

If you’re lamenting the summer gone, there’s a nice post about it on Jim Grey’s blog that’s worth a read.
