I don’t often get out to watch a sunset over the sea – here, in Montana de Oro State Park, overlooking the Pacific. It was gorgeous!
Time to visit again, soon!
Nothing like a morning walk to find peace and beauty.
I think this may be an owl house – not sure. We have screech owls in our area and they can be pretty scary when they screech!

I have been a real slug of late when it comes to posting pictures here on The Glass Aerie. Part of it has been just interests in areas outside of looking at a computer, coldish weather, and whatever other excuse I can offer!
One place I do go with fair regularity is the local botanical garden, which like all such gardens, is designed to display plants and flowers throughout the season. Here, the first narcissus of earlier in the year – something I make special trips for as their presence is so fleeting.
I am finding the X100V to be an extremely pleasant carry-around camera, and the results aren’t have bad, either.
Not something to fall upon . . . especially in the dark.
Color filters are a bit of fun!
Masked man. Stuffed condor.
I picked up a roll of film I had processed and ignored scanning it for weeks. Photography just wasn’t interesting anymore. Yesterday I finally scanned it.
This hiatus showed me something very clearly: I prefer the looks of film to that of digital. Even the Fuji digital equivalents don’t come close to the beauty of film. However, in the pre-digital age, film was horrible because it was expensive and unsuccessful as far as I was concerned. Snapshots, bad lighting, poor composition, and more failures than success. And no education, just a camera and failed hope.
Now I think that digital helped me learn and digital helps analog. It’s good when things play well together, don’t you think?
