Autumn is magic. The days have been a sunny mid-70. We are tilting away from the sun, casting shadows long and deep. It is my favorite time of year.
I shot these photos in my host family’s garden, using both my Canon Powershot, and my iPhone 5 with a macro lens attachment (not a bad $18 investment).
In the distance, you can see a xhamia (pronounced juh-mia, with a soft “j”) (mosque).
“I was alone, I took a ride,
I didn’t know what I would find there.
Another road where maybe
I could see another kind of life there.” — The Beatles, Got to Get You Into My Life
The man is this photo is wearing a plis, a traditional cap worn by Albanian men.
