dreaming of autumn

Dreaming of Autumn BW RS
I have mixed feelings towards summer. I work in the south, in an office building in which my thermostat doesn't work half the time and to walk outside requires a shower. Meanwhile, I find myself "flipping" through hundreds of "summer fun" photos each day...children laughing, sprinklers, playtime at the pool and carnivals.  Part of me wishes that I could be a child again so that I could enjoy a "summer vacation," but those days have long passed. The other part of me is dreaming of autumn, of cooler temperatures and our annual state fair. 

When I saw clare.R.armstrong's photo, I immediately imagined being at the fair and dove into my October archives. Just because I have mixed feelings towards summer, doesn't mean that I should wish my time away. Look at the bright side, at least we have more hours of daylight...right?

Maybe next time, I'll have a better attitude. Until then,

Lovely photos!
I am also not a huge fan of summer. Summer is great and all.. except for the heat!

I miss autumn too. Hopefully ours isn't as hot as summer was last year!

That photo is amazing!

About the time we've had several "hot" weather days (and hot around here in the Washington/Oregon area is upper 80s), I long for autumn. Sunshine, cooler temps, breezes, kids back at school...

What a wonderful, wonderful pairing! I dream of hot, hot days like yours, but over in the UK it's sadly a rarity. It's much more like autumn most of the time!

it's such a tough call...i crave the warmer months during the long winter and then can't wait for the cooler fall temperatures. the grass is always greener for me :) great shots!

Summer in the South is blazing hot for me too and sometimes a three shower day. Love your post and the photos.

I so love carnival photos, and these two are gorgeous.
And I LOVE the warm (okay, hot) days of summer. I get out as much as possible and try to store up that warmth to get me through the long cold winter months.
