There are no words for how wonderful the weather has been this week. It is what everyone is talking about. November and I am riding my bike like it was June. It is sad that the sun leaves us very quickly in the afternoon. Too quickly. Daylight Saving Time be damned!

I brought fall into my studio today to do a leaf study. The age and frail coloring of the leaf reminded me of the character you can see in a person that has aged nearly a century. There is a beauty in this kind of character, the markings of distress, the wilting of the skin, the lines and crevices. They all make up a life's story. For the leaf, a mere season, for us, hopefully a century.

I said I wasn't going to take any more fall pictures. Well that lasted a day. I couldn't help it. This composition was too perfect for me to pass on. There is something about this picture that I love and I knew it even before I took it. It takes me away. I'll leave it to you to conjure up your own sense of time and place.

I guess these are peppers, but I never saw anything like this before. All different colors, all beautiful. I did some reading and they apparently change colors as they mature. From purple to orange to red. Still need to know a lot more. How hot are they? Should they stay outside? Which ones are best to eat? Do I want to eat them? Should I cook them or eat them raw. So many questions.

I just received my ColorChecker. I bought it not only to help me with testing my camera, but more importantly, to help me adjust my monitors. I use 4 computers to edit / develop photographs. A couple of windows desktops with 5 different monitors, a laptop and a MAC. Each monitor shows color a bit differently and that really impacts my photo developing. I have begun to notice it more and more and it has become intolerable. I want to see the same photograph on every monitor,, no exception.
