The bearable lightness of being fall in Vancouver

Friday is more than than three-quarters over so I think it’s safe to say that today has been nice from beginning to end.

For the last six hours or so it’s been nice in a sunny way. Before that is was nice and overcast and even earlier it was the nicest misting rain you could ask for.

Closer you get, the better it looks

Certainly heavy rains are on their way but today’s was light as a feather.

That’s how it felt and that’s how it looked. A fine mist that left a delicate film of carbonation on everything — leaves and flowers and streets and cars.

This is a gentle autumn that feels like spring running backwards, or rather, walking backwards at a leisurely pace. There’s not the slightest sense that we’re rushing headlong towards winter.

Which is fine by me. Really. By all means. let’s take our time. Click the images to enlarge them.
