Roiling

Have to say I really miss traveling. It’s so strange to not go anywhere for months. I miss places like the Inside Passage of Alaska where this shot of roiling clouds was taken. But I am grateful to be alive and have food to eat when so many don’t. We’ll get through this!

Great weekend, everyone, and stay healthy….

September Makes Me Think of…

…apples! I love them, especially my favorite “Jazz” apples. They’re sweet, but not too much, and firm. I can’t stand soft apples. You will never see me eat a Golden Delicious. I used to like Granny Smiths, but not anymore–too tart and thick-skinned. The very best apples I ate were the ones we got from an old tree in the middle of a field near my parents’ house. They were green, but so good. There’s really nothing like a freshly-picked apple. We had a tree in our backyard, but those apples were pretty sour. My mother made the best pie from them, though.

When I was growing up, my dad would peel an apple for me in one fell swoop. Every night for years. He would eat the skin and give me the fruit because he knew I didn’t like the skin (red Delicious–yuck). A sweet memory for me.

Hope you all are healthy and surviving the pandemic….

Filter Fun

Every now and then I apply filters to existing photos just for fun. I’m happy with these shots taken at Disney California Adventure. Sorry, I can’t remember which filters I used, but I tend to go for retro or Cross Process.

Hope you are all doing well….

Roses and K-Dramas

A rose to brighten your weekend.

Anyone else watching K-Dramas (Korean TV series)? I’ve been surprised by how entertaining they are. The acting is very good and the music really draws you in. Be prepared to laugh, cry and swoon because they are called melodramas for a reason. There’s usually a childhood trauma for one of the main characters and the two leads break up more than once. Kind of a roller coaster, but a great escape from the pandemic. I recommend starting with Crash Landing on You, which is on Netflix. The subplots are kind of strange, but the love story is topnotch. They’re in Korean, but have English subtitles.

Great weekend, everyone….

Golden Hour in Lucketts

This was taken at the Old Lucketts Store in Lucketts, Virginia. The sun was going down, so the old shed was bathed in golden light. I love old stuff like this and miss going to the market there.

Great weekend, everyone, and stay healthy….

A Look Back at La Jolla Cove

This is my current screen saver. The good part of looking through photos is finding shots you’d forgotten about. Those tiny things in the upper left are people. Really gives scale to how incredible La Jolla Cove is. I will never tire of photographing it.

Great weekend, everyone and stay healthy….

A Ray of Sun

Here’s a sunny shot for you. I do love sunflowers, and hope to be able to travel to Fran ce again to shoot fields of sunflowers and lavender.

Great weekend, everyone, and stay healthy….

Upside-down Siberian

Finally! I was able to take a photo of Yuri looking up at me while on my lap. Not an easy feat, because he often looks away when he sees the iPhone coming, and I have to lean way back, which he doesn’t like. It wasn’t until I looked at this photo on the computer that I noticed he had his tongue out. : )

Anyway, this guy is doing well, still feisty and funny. He’s slowing down just a little bit, but can still take the stairs eight at a time. Yuri never walks down the stairs–he flies down.

Have a great weekend, everyone, and stay healthy….

Morning View

Originally, I took a shot of this lavender doorway in the evening light. I liked the site so much I went back in the morning for this one, but never posted it.

Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

Great weekend, everyone, and stay healthy….
