Half Moon Bay, California
"Songs and smells will bring you back to a moment in time more than anything else. It's amazing how much can be conjured with a few notes of a song or a solitary whiff of a room. A song you didn't even pay attention to at the time, a place that you didn't even know had a particular smell."
I came across this photo in my 2007 archives, and decided to post it. I took this picture on Monday, October 29th 2007, and when I look at it, I have to smile, because it had been a very nice day. Alan and I were in Half Moon Bay, at Pastorino's Pumpkin Patch, and everything had an amazing autumn glow to it. Big surprise, in that it was smack dab in the middle of autumn, but it was an absolutely gorgeous day, and the roses were trying really hard to out-beauty the pumpkins! And oh my god... the smell of sweet spicy roses, and fresh pumpkin, and the chilly air, and the sound of children excited for Halloween. Ahhhh... If I close my eyes, I am right back there, and it's as if almost 8 years ago was yesterday!
