So here we are, it’s fall, ski season is around the corner and summer is just a memory now. The trees are bare, having dropped their multi-colored leaves, and on a daily basis I have been processing and printing photos of dead animals…trophies of ecstatic hunters. As these rights of fall slowly tail off Christmas card season has already begun and soon winter will be in full swing.
