1950s Adventures Part II: Autumn Colors

Back to 1950s adventures! I started the adventures with my previous post about the beginning of our day at a 50s themed diner. After leaving the diner we wanted to get some pictures with the beautiful New England autumn colors in the background, so we thought we’d find a place along the side of the road. We took a wrong turn over a bridge and got a little confused, but the confusion wound up with us driving past a lovely side road/private drive with lots of lovely trees and rock clumps. Rather impulsively, we pulled over a hopped out to take some pictures… and here are some of the results!

Autumn in New England!

There’s a song that used to play on the Oldies radio station when I was young: “Secret Agent Man”–when I look at this picture I start singing that song in my head… “They’ve given you a number, and taken away your name… (instrumental: doo da doo da doo da doo da doo da doo…) Secret Agent Man!”

This looks like it’s straight out of the autumn edition of a clothing catalog.

We were playing pass-around-my-petticoat so no one would feel left out.

There were so many fun places to take photos!

Serious faces. It has since been determined that if we were to start a hipster band named Queens of Rock, this would be the cover of our first album “Colors of Fall.” Of course, we’d be super obscure and you wouldn’t have heard of us…

The colors are so complimentary! And the glasses are cute.

So there you go. I hope you enjoyed all the leaves! Next stop is the roller rink…

  1. Oh my how fun is yoru petticoat? Well, the whole outfit actually! Looks like you ladies had a wonderful day!

  2. That polka dot dress is just crying out for some pink heels, a pink hat and purse, and a set of white gloves. One of the little flat hats, you know, with a veil. Don’t know why, but that’s just what I see everytime you wear it! It’s such a gorgeous dress and fits you so beautifully!
