Backyard Gold

What you see above is our rainy day antidote. It’s been raining for so long around here my wife Sarah bought this bunch of golden flowers to drive away the gloom. There’s an old shed in our back yard that served as an appropriate backdrop. It’s old water soaked boards provides a pretty good stand in for the current climate.

It’s often as much about the context as the subject itself.

It Never Rains In Sunny California

Desperation is beginning to be emotional  factor. The rain is making sane people nuts.

Storm Coming

Passed this lady going into town today. She didn’t look very happy. I don’t know whether she was peeved with my camera or the fact that it was pretty obvious that she was about to get very wet.  One further thing. I believe the picket fence was a huge help with this composition. Finallyly, I shot this photo with an Olympus EM1 MK II. It’s quite a machine. Complicated as hell but I suspect, once mastered, I’ll love it.

Joy

free from drugs and giving back

Only In California

a weird one

California Picture

a gentle song

Coffee Shop Window

These reflected/see-through window images can become almost dream like. This lady reading in the coffee shop window is surrounded by things that make little sense yet seem to somehow emanate from the page she is reading.

Honky-tonk Man

He just walked up to this piano on the sidewalk and let it rip!
