There was a time when I considered October to be my favourite month, all about Romantic melancholy, the excitement of the nights drawing in in the city streets, lamplight, and the evening world of other lives suspended in golden rectangles, curtains not yet drawn – all that stuff that floats Kerouac's boat about the month – plus the football system bedding in, and the month contained the birthdays of a disproportionate number of my friends and relatives, not to mention me, so there were festivities and loot.

Nothing like that now, of course - the older I get, the more thrilled I am by the renewal of spring, rather than the slow, damp fade into autumn that October has become for me. But I still take pictures, so you still have to suffer :)
