So in a few days it will be September already. Where has the summer gone? Time goes so very quickly doesn’t it? And with this thought in mind (and the thought that it is predicted that we will receive an early visit from the infamous polar vortex this year) I headed to one of Buffalo’s beautiful waterfronts last evening (even though I didn’t entirely feel like it…though I’m glad I did). I really and consciously wanted to take in a summer evening–to remember it–for three months from now when it will be frigid. There’s a really nice outdoor bar at the Buffalo waterfront so I grabbed a beer and waited for the sun to set. And the Yuba works great as a shelf for food, beer, and other things (see below). Anyhow, it really was a nice evening…feeling the breeze come off the lake while watching the sailboats come in for the evening. I snapped more than four dozen photos and here are a few of my favorites. Click any for a larger view.
