I like to post to my blog in the morning. But, I’m a little late. The garden had a higher priority. There are tomatoes, and chilies, herbs and fruit — strawberries and blueberries as well as colorful flowers. Now the garden also has cedar chips which should keep it cooler in the heat of the high desert summer and keep the insects down a bit. How does this relate to a picture a day? On not so great shooting days, I do two things in the garden. I make a simple walk out the door and it’s there picture for the collection and it gives me a place to sit and contemplate the meaning of something. Sometimes, I even get ideas for the PAD project or other shoots. And, even in the heat of July and August, it’s a cool, quiet place to eat breakfast or have a coffee.
