Snapshots of November

And suddenly, in the blink of an eye, it’s December. Its that time of the year where the weather gets colder, and the year draws to an end. That time when the Christmas lights come out to brighten your city. That time were we sit down and wonder where time went and what will the new year hold for us. That time when we dwell upon the new year’s resolutions that we never accomplished, and marvel on how wonderfully the year unfolded even thought we might not have done everything we would have wanted to.

Its a time of the year that brings with it a bittersweet taste, joy for everything that was, nostalgia for everything that wasn’t. A time to look back on how the year unfolded in front of our very eyes. Needless to say the recent past was extremely eventful. November not only marked the re-election of president Barack Obama, but also the exit of Nicolas Ghesquiere from Balenciaga. Its a time of closure as well as a time of new beginnings.

Here’s a glimpse of what my November looked like.

In your face

I visited the Mario Testino “In your face” exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

Love looks not with the eyes

I also came across this painting in the contemporary art section of the MFA. It made me think of Alexander McQueen’s tattoo that said: “love looks not with the eyes.” for anyone who’s not familiar with the quote it is retrieved from William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”

Found this at the MFA as well

My friends and I rented a cabin in Sunday River, Maine. This was the view from the deck.
