But not THE Old Town.
Each year before Mabon we go pick apples in Julian, a historic mining town in the mountains here. When we are done eating our way through the orchard we head into town for a bite to eat and some shopping. Sadly their regular apple cider wasn’t available yet this year so we left without any. We did have a successful trip to the candy store, though.
In these photos, I’ve tried to share my favorite parts of the town – the trees and autumn-y nature (the nature looked slightly more autumn-y than the picture and certainly more so than the city), and the historic buildings that line the streets.
Last night I sat down and created a leaf-shaped aperture for the Lensbaby (which, if I were a good blogger, I’d have a picture of to show you – I’ll owe you, OK?). Here are some of my favorite results from today. (If you don’t know what you are looking for, it’s the leaf-shaped spots around the edges – some are more obvious than others.)
