Round Here


Quietude. That’s what yesterday was about. I think that because my fear of the virus has lessened and that I’ve actually came to some decisions about my photographic work, I slept. And, slept. And, slept. I awoke before 7am. That doesn’t sound like I did much sleeping. After the all seing dog and I returnedContinue reading “Round Here”

New Blooms


Bold color. That’s what I promised you and that’s what you’ll get. Today is day three of our thirty day pause. Luckily, there is so much to do around this place, so much to read, so much to watch and so much organizing of my archives that I doubt anybody will get bored. Eventually, we’llContinue reading “New Blooms”

The Last Chance


I didn’t know. I didn’t know that when I photographed the Japonica trees a day or two ago that it would be my last chance. Normally the flowers would last another two or three weeks. But, we had a pretty bad storm this afternoon. Not only did we get a lot of rain, but weContinue reading “The Last Chance”

So Pretty


So pretty. So pink. Yesterday’s sunset was stellar. The sun was hidden by drifting clouds. And, then it wasn’t. Just then. Right then, the Japonica (Japanese Magnolia) trees were lighted by wonderful late afternoon golden light. I was lucky. Ten minutes either way and I wouldn’t have seen this little bit of prettiness. I wouldn’tContinue reading “So Pretty”

They Say It’s Winter


Winter. I have a friend in Milwaukee who was complaining because his four year old snow blower broke down yesterday. I have friends further east who were just waiting until the big snowstorm reached them. Even in Seattle, where the weather is fairly mild, the streets were tangled by snowfall. Not down here. Oh no.Continue reading “They Say It’s Winter”

Cotton Candy


What a day can change. Two days ago, the sky was muddy gray. There was rain in the air. It was, in a word, yucky. Then came yesterday. Wowzer! Beautiful cold air. The sky turned blue. The light was spectacular. It turned even better around dusk. Cotton candy. Cold. Like winter is supposed to be.Continue reading “Cotton Candy”

I Found It


A tiny little thing. It was hidden in plain sight. So small that I had to look twice and break my cardinal rule of photography. I had to move some of the greenery around to photograph the flower. I try never to move or change anything when I make these kinds of semi-nature pictures. IContinue reading “I Found It”

Summers End Days


While I was walking. I spotted these tiny little pink flowers. They are located high up, growing from a sort of ivy that covers a chain link fence. As we enter into September, this is the time of the summer season when most flowers are dying. Green trees look faded. Not these flowers. They areContinue reading “Summers End Days”

Floating


Floating. Above it all. I was walking and I saw a balloon drop out of the sky from nowhere. It was sort of stunning. It was so unexpected. I made a couple of pictures. It floated away. Just like that. Sometimes, that’s how things happen. It’s up to us to accept them, exploit the moment,Continue reading “Floating”
