While sparse, fall leaves can be found now sprinkling the expanse of Patterson Park.
Morning walks with the puppies are brisk and require a jacket or light sweater.
The days are shorter.
The sun less mighty.
Fall is starting here in Baltimore (well, all over the rest of the country too). As the last days of summer were hanging on, there was a bit of a collective sadness in my city. A kind of mourning for the loss of what was a pretty spectacularly mild and perfect season. But it took just one cool day to shake us out of our would-be misery and fill our hearts with warmth for all the things yet to come. After all, isn't fall full of things like cable knit sweaters, colorful scarves, and pumpkin spice everything (and, if we're lucky, An Orioles-packed World Series)?
So here is fall. Two days in. And what a way to welcome it!
I met some of my favorite clients in Patterson Park early Sunday morning to commemorate Noah's first birthday. What a treat it's been to watch him grow this past year - and I look forward to capturing many birthdays in the future.
Happy birthday, Noah.
And happy Autumn, Baltimore.
