1799 – Summer’s Almost Gone V

As (almost) every year, here’s the “Summer’s Almost Gone” post 😀

This week we already had snow in parts of Austria, RIA Novosti, the Russian news agency, even found it news-worthy. By the way, it was strongly exaggerated anyway, and of course yesterday all was back to normal. We had a wonderfully sunny late-summer day, I left work early and had dinner in a nice restaurant on the riverside.

But still, it’s hard to ignore the signs. Only the most stubborn folks like me still call this a summer 😀

As usual the Song of the Day is “Summer’s Almost Gone” from the 1968 Doors album “Waiting for the Sun”, just like here, here, here and here. Hear it on YouTube.

One thought on “1799 – Summer’s Almost Gone V”

  1. You know, if I had made this image, it would have looked like junk – and I would have tossed it – permanently! I just don’t seem to have your vision. I like the POV – the diagonal of the fence support that moves across the image, holding together not only the fence, but also the rest of the vertical lines, visually/compositionally speaking.

    The ivy will be there all winter. It doesn’t care that this is officially the beginning of autumn. It simply grows, adapts, rests, then grows again when conditions for growing return. It’s a survivor. We can learn much from these hardy plants.
