It’s only the beginning of September, but I’m mindful of how swiftly time moves and keenly aware that my favorite season, autumn, will come and go in a rush. Meaning, winter will be here before we know it. At least in the northern hemisphere. Lest you think I’m trying to force-march us through the seasons, I want to revel in summer a bit more. Much like Holly shared last week, I want to hold on just a tad longer to the colors of the past few months.

Like the bright umbrellas along San Antonio’s Riverwalk…


The flags that fly above market streets…


The vibrant ukuleles for sale…


The summer scenes of a Colorado mountain town…


And the alpine flowers that bloom ever-so-briefly…


These are some of the colors that will soon be fading, but not in my memory. What colors are you holding fast to? I’d love to see — share some links in the comments!

All photos were shot with my Canon AE-1 35mm film camera using Portra 400 film.
