November wasn’t a big picture-taking month for me, either. I think I blew my wad on October’s 10 days of blazing color. As October ended, the leaves fell from the trees and while we have had some nice days since, nothing will compare to the incredibly beauty of last month.
November is our “foodie” month. The point of Thanksgiving is to show gratitude for the good things that have happened during the year, but for many of us there haven’t been a lot of good things worth discussing. Nonetheless, not merely did we eat well, but our best foods were gifts which, I suppose made us grateful to the food for being food!
The one amazing beauty spot of the month were my Christmas cactus flowers. After a couple of years of waiting for them to come back to left after I insulted them by repotting both — something which insulted or not, they really needed.
I think I spent more than half the month fighting with customer service people. I got my lens today — finally. I haven’t checked it out yet because I made maki for dinner and I’m tired. But it makes a great closer for a wonderful month of dining in while dining extremely well.
About The Changing Seasons
The Changing Seasons is a monthly project where bloggers around the world share their thoughts and feelings about the month just gone. We all approach this slightly differently, though generally with an emphasis on the photos we’ve taken during the month.
For many of us, looking back over these photos provides the structure and narrative of our post, so each month is different. Some focus on documenting the changes in a particular project — such as a garden, an art or craft project, or a photographic diary of a familiar landscape.
But in the end, it is your changing season, and you should approach it however works for you. There are no fixed rules around post length or photo number — just a request that you respect your readers’ time and engagement.
