Theme of the Month: September 2012 shots; Summer’s end

There are months where available time, weather, inspiration and elements come together to produce a superior body of work.  A calendar month is somewhat arbitrary frame of reference but I organize my overall work by month and some months just jump with photographic joy over others.  My favorite times of year to do photography are the March-April area and again in September-October, times I like to call “Phase Change” , when the world either goes from  frozen winter into hopeful spring or when summer ends and the fall/winter season commences.

This series is on a bike ride on Shephard Road into downtown St. Paul following the Mississippi River starting at Crosby Falls park.  You feel the shorter days and the cooler temperatures but yet the leaves are just starting to hint at their coming color transformation.   Its summer’s end and always just a little too soon in the northern latitudes of  the Northern US.  September 1st, 2012.
