October. The temperature drops below 100 for a few days here and there and weeknights sing.

Arbitrary Stupid Goal

There are many things to enjoy and think about in Tamara Shopsin's Arbitrary Stupid Goal, a memoir of family and friendships and neighborhood characters and places in a not-so-long-ago New York City that sounds as if it mostly doesn't exist anymore or won't soon. I enjoyed it and perhaps you will too.

But I also want to say that something I especially liked about the copy I borrowed from the library was how whoever put the mylar jacket on it, played with the already cool duotone design to make it even more fun than it already was. Well done, Pima County.

Pretending to See the Future

This is a color blending exercise from Nick Fancher's book, Chroma.

I've been working through some of the examples in Nick Fancher's book Chroma. This image is from an exercise in color blending using gelled speedlights.
