The Changing Seasons, December 2022
Funny thing. I had just pulled the pictures in my camera out and processed four of them. These are also the last shots for the year. I had no idea what was on the card having forgotten what pictures I’d taken. I did remember there were pictures. I just had not idea what they were.
I would normally say I didn’t take many pictures this month because it’s true, but I managed to take a few of each thing as it happened. The number of shots is low, but I caught quite a few different occasions. I am getting better at not overshooting everything in hopes I won’t totally clog my hard drive.
First, I took a couple of shots of the Duke before he decided he had to come and lick my lens. He looks very noble, doesn’t he?
He give us this look whenever he feels he needs something to eat. He’s weirdly picky. He’ll beg for a lot of things, but he won’t necessarily eat them. This is definitely his best Duke of Uxbridge look.
The other day, I gave you a sunset, but today, I give you a sunrise. I rarely take pictures of sunrises because usually, I’m asleep or want to be asleep. This particular morning, it was really beautiful. I wasn’t wearing my glasses and was also a bit groggy. I should have used the camera with the wider lens, but I picked the 100-300 mm “birding” lens. I didn’t even remember taking the pictures until I pulled the card out. Here’s a sunrise and a sunset — same woods, same direction. Very different lens.
And now, a quick sampling of the rest of the month.
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.
