It’s Autumn, cold and chill this week after temps in the 100s F. Ugh. The damp and fog are very welcome. As far as which fits the season of Halloween best, what do you think? Color or B&W?
Been busy with other things … but here are some daisies using Fuji Velvia 100.
I always liked the name of “daisy” – it means “day’s eye” – and these bright yellow ones certainly do cheer up the landscape.
I have a small batch of ever-expanding freesias in my front yard. Every spring, there they are. Using Velvia 100 slide film, these are the results. Today, the flowers are gone, but their leaves remain behind, returning the nutrients to the bulbs for next year.
From the perspective of this image, it is not really possible to see what this tree looks like. Eucalyptus trees tend to grow straight up . . . somehow, sometime, this one toppled over and continued to grow. “E+J” were here, rather than Kilroy. BTW, this is a pano of about 8 images.
Ever since I can remember, a big pleasure in life is to look at clouds as they drift above. Here, in California, where I live, clouds are rare, and thus to be savored even more. They come with the rain – sometimes fluffy cumulus towering above the mountains – sometimes thin cirrus drifting at high altitudes.
Having grown up in a land-locked part of the country, the ocean always fascinates me. I took this, sitting on a cliff overlooking the great, blue Pacific, on the edge of a continent, on the border of an ocean, thousands of miles east of another continent completely unknown to me.
