Some people have preferences for different seasons of the year and watch the last weeks of summer with anticipation. I'm one of those that welcomes cooler air, crispy leaves and ever-so-slightly shorter days. Though we've had an unusually warm and long summer, it's flown by for me and the family as we're just a week away from moving into a new home.
Moving (and everything leading up to it) is pretty disrupting and I've found many days when the sun is just about gone and my camera has yet to be used. The kids go back to school in 3 weeks which signals the start of new daily routines again. It also means we all need to leave the house much earlier. The earlier start means earlier bed time too.
I shouldn't be surprised by the way all of these things affect the photos I make and even my desire to shoot. I love the idea of spontaneity, but I also have started noticing the significant role of seasonality and routine in my creative process. My current 365 Project is hard right now where I was choosing from a dozen photos a day back in the spring.
Bring on the next season!
