October Melancholy

"October's the month
When the smallest breeze
Gives us a shower
Of autumn leaves.
Bonfires and pumpkins,
Leaves sailing down -
October is red
And golden and brown."
- Can Teach Songs

However beautiful, the month of October
always seems to be able to make me sad and melancholic.
Although it's my birthday month,
that never seems to make any difference.

Photography helps me try to look at it differently.
So maybe if I took a long walk this afternoon?
Maybe if I tried to capture those warm colours?
The sun is out, and it's not raining.
Who knows, maybe I could love October,
... at least for today?
