The Beginning Of October • RI Children's Photographer

October has arrived (in fact, it's almost gone!)  With it has come increasingly shorter days, but not necessarily the fall leaves that usually signal the arrival of autumn.  There are a few, but boy, they've been pretty slow this year.  The temperatures have been unseasonably warm and it seems like our summer is lasting well into October now. 

There still are signs of fall, and of October, everywhere.  There are plants that seem to know that their time is short, and they have died.  The light is ever more fall-like, dahlias are everywhere, and the cat is getting more fluffy....he seems to be getting his winter coat.

We had a canine visitor at our house during early October.  Lionel is not his biggest fan, but he's a good boy, even if he's a little camera shy.  As a RI children's photographer, I'm used to camera shy kids, so a dog who is a little unsure definitely won't bother me!

To see more of October, look below.  How are the leaves where you are?  Let me know in the comments!
