TWiP: Rainy and Leafy

This Week in Pictures

This week was mostly rainy days, bookended by a couple of really beautiful ones. I’m not a huge fan of rainy days in general. I find the hassle of getting from point A to point B without getting drenched to be a real drag. But I have to say, there’s something different about rainy days in the fall, particularly rainy days in the fall when you have nowhere else to be. Give me a warm drink, cozy pajamas, a good book and the pitter-patter of raindrops on the window and I can be a happy camper all morning.

I won’t be particularly productive, but I will be happy 🙂

As you can see from at least one of my pictures, though, I wasn’t sitting around at home in my pjs while it rained. Nope. This girl was going places.

I’ve just realized there’s not much left of October. This time next week, it will be November! It’s probably just in time – I’m running out of steam on my Fall photo project. There are only so many ways to take pictures of leaves!

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for my Project 365, plus some everyday-life images I posted on Instagram during the previous week. (FYI, my daily photo project this year has changing monthly themes. October’s them is Fall [of course!])

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…



365: Fall 18/31 – The weather today at the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival was PERFECT. Overcast and cool enough to wear the ever-important Rhinebeck Sweater without overheating.


365: Fall 19/31 – We stopped at a scenic overlook on Bear Mountain on our way home from Rhinebeck today.


365: Fall 20/31 – I always like way the leaves look when they’re scattered in the grass.


365: Fall 21/31 – In my yard.


365: Fall 22/31 – Another cloudy and wet Autumn morning.


365: Fall 23/31 – Wet leaf stuck to my wet car.


365: Fall 24/31 – There are already a few trees in my yard that have lost all of their leaves.

Thanks for taking a peek at this week’s photos! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on Flickr.

I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!
