The best camera is the one you have with you …

Fall means many things for many people. For me, it’s been this Belle and Sebastian song, “Another Sunny Day,” long car rides, Sunday hikes, farms, covered bridges, holding hands and taking pictures. Lots of pictures.

Here are a few I’ve been meaning to post for a while:

Another sunny day, I met you up in the garden
You were digging plants, I dug you, beg your pardon
I took a photograph of you in the herbaceous border
It broke the heart of men and flowers and girls and trees

Jess sunshine

Another rainy day, we’re trapped inside with a train set
Chocolate on the boil, steamy windows when we met
You’ve got the attic window looking out on the cathedral
And on a Sunday evening bells ring out in the dusk

Ky dusk

Another day in June, we’ll pick eleven for football
We’re playing for our lives, the referee gives us fuck-all
I saw you in the corner of my eye on the sidelines
Your dark mascara bids me to historical deeds


Everybody’s gone, you picked me up for a long drive
We take the tourist route, the nights are light until midnight
We took the evening ferry over to the peninsula


We found the avenue of trees, went up to the hill
That crazy avenue of trees, I’m living there still

Brick leaves

There’s something in my eye, a little midge so beguiling
Sacrificed his life to bring us both eye to eye
I heard the Eskimos remove obstructions with tongues, dear
You missed my eye, I wonder why I didn’t complain
You missed my eye, I wonder why, please do it again
