The sunshine has shifted to being autumnal. This is strange considering the force behind the full sun of only a few weeks ago. It was almost violent. The light was forceful and demanding your attention, like a solar version of a water cannon. Now it is gentle and pliant, washing around you. It’s as if a silk scarf has been draped over the day. Transparent. You are able to focus through it so it become like a lens, tinting the concrete.
The algae on the river is practically gone now. The water is brown with silt and mud.
