Autumn in Fitzroy

I wish I could capture the magic of this evening as I walked home from work.

The warm weather we're having this week brought people out onto the street, drinking wine, making it feel like late summer ... but then the dusk was definitely autumnal.  The long drawn out twilight combined with the lighted up buildings to make everything seem extra luminous.

And there I was, walking along Brunswick St with a bunch of red freesias in one hand (held aloft, a la Statue of Liberty) and a small, perfect, orange pumpkin (homegrown, gift from a workmate) under the other, feeling like the vĂ©ritable Spirit of Autumn.  

I wish you could have been there.
