The Pin Oak is a tree indigenous to the parts of the US east of California – which means everywhere is east! These are trees familiar to my childhood in the midwest and along the eastern seaboard, and I missed them forever once we moved to California. There are oak trees in California, but they are adapted to a different climate, with much smaller leaves which don’t turn orange before falling. Also, they are green year round, which is a blessing of color in a beige winter landscape. And, they are as wonderful as the Pin Oak. Yay, trees!

A scene from the local botanical garden . . . piles of Pin Oak leaves against blooming Mexican sage. If you look in the upper left, you will see some pink blooms still clinging to a tree branch.
I took a 2-hour walk this afternoon. It feels like the beginning of autumn – a bit cooler – and it looks like autumn, too, because the light is losing its intensity as we move away from the sun. I had my FM2n with me, complete with lens and film, but finished the roll. Since I had the phone, I tried a few. VSCO makes great products, for the phone, and for post in LR or PS!
