Much Better Than The East Coast Version!

The difference in how produce tastes between  east and west coasts often can be huge. Satsuma citrus is a good example. Before we left we bought a few at Whole Foods in Boston. They tasted good, much better than I expected. However, today we also bought a few at Whole Foods in Petaluma, California. Oh My God! They were astounding.

Even the peel felt fresher! I was almost tempted to take a taste of that too!!

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 special was going on. (They leave for Hawaii tomorrow.)

A Glimpse of 2019

This a picture of some wonderful woodlands in Helen Putnam park in Petaluma, California. They speak to me of the unknown and somewhat scary year we are about to face. I hope I’m wrong but I doubt it.

Picture of Happy

I was in a coffee shop this morning, having an 11am mug and carrying a camera as usual. As I was getting ready to leave, this quick greeting took place at the front counter. Nice to see. Really nice!

Magic Mist #1

Sarah and I took an early morning walk today. We hoped that the time of day would make the bird viewing easier. It did just that, but for me there was another huge benefit. The morning fog hadn’t burned off yet and the landscape was shrouded in a light haze, turning familiar scenes into misty magic.

Just Waiting

I’d like to tell you a story about this photograph. However there isn’t one. I just liked the composition. There is even the possibility that it might eventually turn into a black and white image. However that’s not very likely as i’d loose the snap of the red striped poles.

 

Rainy Day Alley In Thirds (Lucky Shot)

The strong verticals in this photograph neatly divide it in thirds. To be honest about it, I didn’t see this when I took the picture. It was the figure in the foreground that mattered,
