My wife and I were out driving around this afternoon and she commented on just how gorgeous the light was – September light. The weather in New England is perfect, crisp mornings with dry warm but not hot afternoons. Photographically, I tried unsuccessfully to get some good photographs at the new Boston Market – but a hoped for image of a hake lying on a bed of ice did not meet my standards, which was probably just as well. I feel for the fish, who yesterday morning was swimming in George’s Bank only to find himself lying on a bed of ice in the market and soon to be someone’s dinner.

I was looking for something photographically beautiful and fun this morning. To the point, in Germany it is the time of the Oktoberfest, and I found this smashing image by Sven Hoppe for the AP of the scene in one of the beer tents on the opening day of the 182nd Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany, on Sept. 19, 2015. What could be better and nothing could be wurst. Sorry!
