The light. Have you ever noticed how the light changes with the seasons? The days are definitely shorter but the light seems ‘cooler’ as well but maybe that’s my imagination? I don’t know if getting older makes me more aware of my surroundings or if it’s because I’m a photographer and videographer who’s always looking for the light, looking for the details, looking for the story – but I notice the tiniest of details as Mother Nature begins her march into a new season.
I’ve been on a pickling kick this summer and in fact, I’ve pickled more food this year than ever. It started with these preserved lemons and moved on to sweet pickles, sour pickles, blackberries and I even have a jar of brandied cherries tucked away; jams and jellies are also stacked in the pantry and I may even try my hand at a bit of sauerkraut this fall.
