Outtakes: Remember September

“But now in September the garden has cooled, and with it my possessiveness. The sun warms my back instead of beating on my head … The harvest has dwindled, and I have grown apart from the intense midsummer relationship that brought it on.” – Robert Finch.

September is gone and it seems that fall’s mild weather is finally upon us. Here are some of my favorite photos from 2019’s 9th month.

Long and Patterson met while admiring the museum’s plane at an airshow at Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield last year. The museum took notice of their meeting during the airshow and arranged a flight in the aircraft for them. Ramey, CEO and director at large for the Stockton Field Aviation Museum, piloted the PV-2 Harpoon which took the veterans to see the annual air races in Reno, Nevada.
