Our trip to Monterey was wonderful, and this is the only souvenir we have probably ever boughten in our lives: a glass paperweight with a turquoise and gold jelly fish.
A grass found in a local public garden. I rather like the addition of the sunspot, which I got in a number of images on this roll.
I wandered around the complex – sounds industrial – which contains the teen center, senior center, and public library. Besides the buildings are gardens and a local park, all of which contain native plants and trees. And places for a person to enjoy. Here is one of the many benches under the trees, this one in front of the entrance to the main library. Having read that a good way to determine if a black and white photo will work is to look for strong contrasts . . . I liked the light sparking through the leaves above the bench in particular, as well as the shadows and lines within the frame.
