october 2012 | acadia national park, bar harbor maine.
on our second day in acadia national park we hiked the North Bubble, which is a pint-sized mountain at the northern side of Jordan pond. i had no idea what, if any view was in store but man was i pleased when i saw the entire pond and out onto the gulf of maine.
so i think i figured out my fuzzy photo issue, and perfect timing because i adore how this series of 35mm shots turned out from the cranberry bogs in carver. i feel successful in searching out the textures and colors of fall, that aren’t bright red leaves or a pile of pumpkins. don’t get me wrong i love those things too, but i wanted the moodier side of the season that’s lesser seen.
i said it over on instagram, but have to reaffirm it….bonus summer days in the fall are awesome! we had a beautiful wknd of warm weather and sunshine. saturday i toured a few church fairs with my pal beth and snatched up some nana-chic knitted goods. I got a $4 version of this beauty 🙂 Later in the day i finally tracked down the witchy winter coat of my dreams! Sunday Eric and i started on our way up to Maine for a day trip to the beach since the weather was so nice. we were abruptly halted at the NH border by our car’s temperature warning alarm. I call it serendipity, because that led us right to an orchard who had amazing cider donuts! i had just bemoaned the fact i hadn’t had any this fall. we wandered through the barren orchard with a big ol’ bag of sugary donuts while the car cooled down. after our little adventure of kicking pumpkins, bee box snooping, and napping in the sun we called AAA and had our sorry car towed back home.

well lookie what i just found in my drafts folder! better late than never right? our most recent words to shoot by post was Fall. i shot it in and around a cranberry bog in Carver, MA. I’ll have many more shots of that bog and it’s bittersweet encased old barn to share soon!
fall is here! what a beautiful wknd in new england we had. lots of blue sky, sun, and the return of chilly nights. i love it! On sunday we took a drive up to NH for a little picnic to celebrate the change of season. as we threw down our spread on a picnic table at Wilson farm, we couldn’t stop laughing at the child-like cries of MAAAA! coming from a near by barn. after our meal we investigated the ruckus…to find a little goat heard! mommas, their painfully cute babies, and daddy goats with beards any hipster dude would seriously die for. the owner showed us around and invited us into the barn to meet the vocal bunch. i love how we seem to have a knack for stumbling into remarkable places like this.
so remember fall? I can’t believe how the time flew and here we are in December with twinkling little lights and pine needles on my living room floor. well to remind us what a beautiful fall it was, here are some lovely shots from the last weekend of apple picking in new england. I have tons of photos squirreled away from the past (busy) month as well, so please stay tuned this week …
