Dreary Days of November

“Don’t eat those yet!” I say to the Fisherman just before he takes a bite. He puts it down and shakes his head at me.

Last night I see these pears and knew tomorrow’s forecast was rainy, dreary and overcast.   Rainy, dreary overcast days are one of my favorite forecasts for dreamy dark and moody light. 

Oh, my!  Be still my heart.  How I love this moody light of November.

Figs on the brain

Figs . . . 

I haven’t been able to get them out of my mind.

Not because I like to eat them . . . I just wanted to photograph them.  fig pumkn logo

It’s crazy I know but, sometimes I can think of anything else but . . what I will photograph next. . . what will look most beautiful in the view of my little 35mm. 

and even though at times I just can’t get to the photograph yet 

I think about it.

So for the past month, anytime I went into a store, the first thing I was in of search of were FIGS.

I had the Best Nana, Lucy and that other sister of mine looking, looking, looking 

for Figs

No one could find them. 

I thought maybe I missed them. . . an internet search told me the time was just not right for the South but,  they were coming.

So I waited until they came.
