December is at our door and as the cold begins to bite, fields lay down to rest.

Tough and Spiky

It’s a dead seed pod, that’s all. However, it has a an aggressive abstract  quality that makes it stand out. I love to find simple natural objects that have this kind of anthropomorphic quality.

The Yellow Thing By The Pond

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Yesterday was Thanksgiving and we went to the town where I grew up to celebrate the holiday with our extensive, extended family. Walking to the house where a groaning feast awaited I spotted a yellow something watching us under a tree by a nearby pond. Don’t ask me what it was. I have no idea. But its big round eyes, at least I think they were eyes, seemed worthy of a photograph.

There is a large goat farm in Pescadero, California that is an amazing combination of high tech cheese making and clever down home marketing. It’s called Harley’s Goat Farm  http://www.harleyfarms.com/. We stopped in town for lunch the day before we were due to fly back to Boston and hung around for a while soaking in the calm beautiful atmosphere of a business that loved what it did.

What is does of course is make cheese and what great cheese it is! They let you taste all the offerings and it is virtually impossible to leave without something, especially if the something has just won a gold medal in european cheese making contest AND has flowers on the top.

Catching A Ride With A Dolphin

In Monterey the sea dominates Cannery Row area. As we went downstairs from our hotel room to a coffee shop for a little “wake me up” it was softly raining.  There on the patio was a young seagull yelling his head off sitting on the head of a dolphin statue. I couldn’t resist this quick silhouette photo.
