Season Identity Crisis

Vernon/Giverny, France Vernon/Giverny, France Vernon/Giverny, France Vernon/Giverny, France Vernon/Giverny, France Vernon/Giverny, France Okay, so it's actually July in these photos. But last summer when we were visiting Giverny and Vernon, I noticed that parts of the town had a distinctly autumn feel due to abundant yellows, browns and oranges. Calendar be damned. I took these photos half wondering if I could convince anyone I took them in the fall. I'm not sure who I had in mind for the prank (not you, I swear!), but I waited a few months to share them simply because it felt like a shame to waste all of these rich autumn hues in the midst of the summer. What do you think?

Ha! If you hadn't said anything you could have fooled me. I love sunny autumns so much I was all ready to believe you.

Makes sense, I don't blame you. I particularly love the Hotel Strasbourg one…you had me fooled that is was another city for a moment! ;)

Got me. I totally could have been convinced the pictures were from the fall. The kind of fall day that thoughtfully graces you with the warm rays of the sun on your face.

I think you're hilarious! And I'm happy to be fooled by your season identity crisis any day. Gorgeous photos.

That struck me as well, the light is very "summery", but otherwise the colours of the buildings etc. do look rather like autumn – lovely photos as always.
