[Above] Chair, Downtown Albany, New York
Summer is officially over in a few weeks. Feels like it never started. The county fairs are in full swing. Their appearance of Carnys and country music and dusty parking lots signal summer's passing. Out past the city, the corn is well past head high and huge sunflowers dance in the breeze. Every day eats up real estate on the calendar and brings the gray, featureless days of the New England winter slightly closer. The summer sunsets are finite, but as the days grow shorter and the nights colder, each sunset means a little more.
More to come in the next few weeks: Weddings, Surfing, the end of the 2009 Mountain Bike Racing Season. My new book and site is up at: www.unseennortheast.com. Check back. Enjoy the remaining days of summer.
