“Dry Creek” is a landscaping element popular in drought-ridden and dry climes, especially in the area I live. There is a semblance of a creek created with the use of rocks in a form of path or creek bed. It’s really a pleasant landscaping element. Additionally, the use of xeriscape plantings decreases the need for water once the plants are established. This is taken alongside one of the local library’s walls.
Buildings with ivy and plants climbing over their walls always fascinated me. Haunted castles, romantic villas . . . certainly far from my quoitidian life!
Awhile back some friends and I went to Glendale, California, to do some street photography, and then have some excellent Persian food! We tend to do this a lot as one of our little group seems to know all the best places between here and Mars to eat. And to photograph.
Another view from Mesa Verde National Park. This is a corner of one of the park buildings built during the 1930s, probably under the WPA.
Brambles, aka blackberries, are everywhere – just a weed with delicious fruit.
