The Companion To October Light

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on October 11, 2013 by johnbuckley100

Faulkner’s Light In August is a great title, because it calls out the subtle change in color temperature suffusing the hot air of a dying summer.  But we’ve always loved the title to John Gardner’s late phase novel, October Light.  Is there anything more gorgeous than the yellow light of October?  But October is not uniformly sunny.  October rain is October light’s sullen, destructive companion. This is what October too often looks like here in the U.S.    This is what it looks like today.    Leica M9, Noctilux.

With The Weather Turning, This Is More Like It

It was 91 degrees in D.C. last Sunday.   This feels less freakish.  Leica M9, Noctilux, 2010.

Street Photography And The Teton County Fair, Part 1

The Teton County Fair is an annual event in Jackson, Wyoming, and it is notable not simply as a prototypical American county fair, replete with pig wrestling and the rodeo next door, but for the way it brings together such a wide range of people.  It is, for street photography, a target rich environment.

People come to see and be seen, and the rich pageant of personalities — some locals, some tourists — is a feast for the eyes.

Families come for the rides and the entertainment, and to see their friends.  It is a communal gathering with roots in such fairs that go back to the dawn of civilization.  And so too should we think of street photography at such events — a capturing of humanity gathering together with roots in painting going back to the time of Breugel.

People are open, and less guarded about having their pictures taken.

Teton Fair 8 (1 of 1)

For a fair in a relatively isolated resort community in the West, you see all types.

From those who live in Teton County to those visiting from big cities around the world.

There is an innocence that seems to accompany those participating in the spectacle.

And a simple delight in being there.

The Kind Of Day It’s Going To Be

Old Rolling Stones albums on the stereo, strong coffee, naps calling?  Or will we pull out of this?

We must have driven by the old fire alarm a hundred times without ever noticing someone had painted it with a portrait of our city’s namesake…  Leica M, Noctilux.

Afterfrenzy 3

So last week, the tulips were mostly in frenzy, but the winter-summer-winter pattern of the weather kept them from being in uniform bloom.  Today is a sunny, but cool day in Washington, and the tulips are all open, but the peak of the frenzy was probably three or four days ago.

Afterfrenzy 2

We found some new beds not far from where we live, and we will remember them for next year.  Alas, we are in the afterfrenzy.  As far as we’re concerned, summer can now begin.
