"September: it was the most beautiful of words, he’d always felt, evoking orange-flowers, swallows, and regret."
— Alex Theroux
My September mood board. These photographs reflect how I'm feeling these days. With the arrival of Autumn a melancholic air surrounds everything. September has had the most beautiful sunsets and some rainy days. As the Irish proverb goes: "Autumn days come quickly, like the running of a hound on the moor."
When I'm on that mood I dream about being on a Château in Normandy, taking afternoon tea on the terrace, and I constantly listen to some good old jazz songs (specially to Coltrane and Davis), Nick Drake, Charlotte Gainsbourg's IRM, and a lot of instrumental music (from Bach and Mozart to Dustin O'Halloran). Also, I've been watching films from Tarkovsky, Rohmer and Bergman. These three directors have an ability to create gloomy atmospheres and somber characters with reminiscences from Romanticism that are perfect for this time of the year.
