…………………
the sun sets in london quite early … by 4pm, night has fallen. instead of fighting the longer nights, i’m going to try to embrace them. it makes it easier when i see that filtered, golden autumn sunshine during the day.

a few links i’m enjoying…
+ heaven can wait, charlotte gainsbourg & beck (the video is so cool)
+ a father/daughter roadtrip documented on camera, “in search of eustace” (via 2 or 3 things i know)
+ a blog i’m enjoying, dot com dot co dot uk

looking forward to a super weekend around here. hope yours is fun, too! happy friday.

    Can you believe that it’s your second weekend there already?! Sounds like you’ll become an honorary Londonite in no time. Have a good one.

    yes it really does get dark too early here! I can see the sun setting already now. Makes me sad but I really love the winter sun on bright clear days.

    Re: enjoying embracing early evenings, Jane Brocket had a blog post recently about that, too. I think she’s right and experiencing/noticing/appreciating the contrast between the dark world outside and the warm cozy world inside helps. I’m thinking about fall/winter evening walks and noticing warm yellow light from windows — in college I’d walk across campus and love how the library was all lit up (see this picture as a good example!).

    Oops, my link to the library picture didn’t work – here it is. (http://gallery.columbia.edu/images/cuhomebutlerexteriorjpg)

    This has reminded me to pop down to the farmers’ market in Hampstead. I haven’t quite got back to my routine yet after being away for a month. Thanks!

    oh i love the “morning coffee” one — being that i’m from St. Petersburg AND used to shoot with Zenit – that was my first camera in fact.

    I loved ‘in search of eustace’. A wonderful find indeed.
