fall flame

After you’ve lived in one place for a while, it’s easy to think you’ve seen it all. The same architecture, the same streets, the same sprawling malls, the same old, same old. And then one day you’re walking around a corner, looking for something else, only half paying attention, and there it is: something different. Hello, says the red vine, waving brightly from its yellow wall. Hellooooo, do you see me?

On another note, I’ve decided to post entries only on weekdays. As the days get darker, weekends are getting busier and sometimes I’d rather sleep in… So now you don’t have to waste, er, invest your weekends reading my blog, but I hope you’ll keep dropping by on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. And thanks as always for your excellent comments!

  1. How pretty!! The red definitely stands out, and against the building it’s even more striking (the building itself has a lot of character)! I don’t blame you for only posting during the week – it doesn’t seem like there’s a lot of activity on weekends, anyway.

  2. yep I still love this shot, nice details.

    I’m thinking I might stop my weekend uploads as well, never seems to be many people around and now that our weather is warming up, we’re out with the gear shooting.

  3. Thanks again, Leanne!
    I agree, weekends are perfect for field trips, not sitting for an hour or two (or three) in front of the computer. Must tear myself away now!

  4. That’s wonderful. You make peeling paint and broken plaster a virtue. You must have a bookful of gorgeous architectural views of the city.

    Yeah, the blog thing is very time consuming, alright. I certainly enjoy your posts though.

    Hope your day went well.

    • I’m not sure that peeling paint and broken plaster are virtues, but they are pictureque!

      My posts don’t take long to write, but they require a period of unhurried time while I think about what I want to say, and how to say it succintly. I enjoy reading your posts as well — you have so many interesting stories to tell — they must represent a considerable time investment!

      Thanks for asking about my “big” day. I think I did quite well — most of my responses were good, a few were duds — but now I’m wondering if it’s a job I really want… we’ll see if I get a second interview.
