Another rainy morning makes me think of blue still more despite the warm golds and oranges of the fallen leaves.

It’s the day before Halloween, which in some places is referred to as Mischief Night or Devil’s Night. While I’m not much for Halloween pranks myself, I know someone who’s got some mischief of his very fuzzy sleeves:

There’s something rather pleasing about the geometric shapes of this train hardware. Usually it’s the colors or textures of old machinery that catches my attention but in this case I think it was the shapes.

Today may be international cat day, but it’s always cat day around here. Who could resist such a regal guy?

Wondering what all of these cat portraits are about? It’s part of a daily project I’m undertaking this year. Read more about the project here.

Rather happy with how this shot captures the essence of rain. Or is it oil?

Update: Like this photo? It is now available as an archival matted print in my Etsy shop.

It’s also available printed on shirts, pillows & totes here on Print All Over Me and on a few other products from Society6.

Only 65 more days of this weird, not-so-good year left, yay.

Cold values

I keep finding myself drawn to blue values and cold palettes without meaning to lately. See what I mean?

Crazy

Crazy about the colors I caught in this photo. It was such a dark, overcast day full of downpours so capturing this makes getting soaked pretty worth it.

Into the Void

The autumn weather snapped finally, a pleasant enough change, but not so great for outdoor swimming. Instead, I’ve been enjoying the gym indoors for the last few weeks, switching things up and cranking the tunes while grinding away on equipment. It feels great (if exhausting) and allows me the same time to reflect that I get out of swimming (even if I miss out on the wind and sun on my arms).

But I found a solution to ease the indoor transition— a new playlist to keep myself happy and focused while kicking my butt at the gym. And while listening to this new playlist, a track came on that propelled me back in time. Back to brisk autumn weather in Göteborg and catching the morning train to get away to Stockholm for the weekend. This song brings it all back:

How about you? Do any songs propel you back in time or take you some place else? Which song(s) and where does it take you?

Here are a few more from the rainy days last week. Really liking the subtle golds and blues and the warm tones of the rain drops.
