The log made it all this way and refused to fall. I like that about a log. Well done, John Marciano, and thanks for sharing.
Just like that, autumn is officially here. Can you believe it? We can’t but are so ready for it regardless. On to Friday Links…
- There will be some great photo ops (and great local art) at Art All Night, this Saturday in six neighborhoods around D.C.

I was initially drawn to the postcard glow from the sun setting through the branches in Eric P‘s photo. The warm colors brighten up the landscape of a seemingly cold and still afternoon, which invites me in the frame.
