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!

Just Fishing

There’s a little pond about half way up to the top of Helen Putnam regional park in Petaluma. I sincerely doubt if there are any fish in it. However almost every time we go by the place there are some boys trying their luck. It’s a wonderful childhood scene!

Canine Friend

Today we were walking along the banks of the Petaluma River looking for birds, when we came across this friendly couple looking like they were doing the same thing.

40th Wedding Anniversary

We’re in Petaluma currently. It’s a lovely, funky little city about an hour north of San Francisco. At 8 in the morning we we headed out to breakfast. As we were waithing for the restaurant to open its door, this lovely coupled came up and was waiting too. It was their 40th wedding anniversary and they looked radiantly happy. Of course what they wore gave a clue that something…

Sunday Morning Coming Down

I love the quiet time before the city rouses itself. No horns, no sirens, only ths soft sounds of sleep slinking off.
