BSM: Bridge to Something New

Although the calendar calls January 1st the "new year," I have always felt September to be more of a new beginning. Each year as I mourn the the passing of summer, embark on a new school year, and smell autumn lurking just around the corner, I feel like a new year is beginning. I'm more motivated to do different things, change habits, or start projects at this time of year than I ever am on January first.

In honor of my "new year," I photographed this bridge; I'm calling it the "Bridge to Something New." Who knows what the coming year holds...

Fall does feel more like the start of a new year than January in the dead of winter. I agree with you. There are so many changes happening in fall it just feels more like the start of something new all the time.

Wonderful shot of the bride. I love the perspective and the idea of what may be off in the distance. :)

Love it, LOVE it! I love leading lines in photography!!! I agree, September always did feel like the new year...for me now with no kiddos in school yet, Jan is more of the new year, but I'm sure it will change back when they start school in a few years!
