Venus and the moon


Orange County, California
26 November 2011

I rather wish the tree hadn't been in the way, but the sky was quite pretty that night.

Kitchen library


Cookbooks
23 November 2011

As I've pointed out, we have many books. I even have bookshelves in the kitchen, though most of my cookbooks are stuffed in the pantry. Along with the cooking magazines. And even the publications aren't really representative of my collection.

It's all the little pieces of paper with ingredients and directions scrawled on them.

The golden state


Morning sun
21 November 2011

It rained yesterday--like crazy for a few hours--and this morning, though the ground was still soaking, the sky was clear.

On my way back from dropping the son off at the bus stop, all was quiet. Most of the schools are out for the whole week, so at 7 am, the street was empty.

I love mornings like this when it is cold and clear. As the sun rises, the streets and roofs and foliage all begin to steam. In this morning's clear yellow light, the world was hazed in gold.

Handsome boy


Milton
11 November 2010

Yes, I am suffering from a singular lack of imagination. Unfortunately, I've been pretty ill the last couple of weeks, so imagination has not been my strong suit. Wielding painkillers and Kleenex...yup, that's about the limit at the moment.

Tech stuff: Taken with my Nikon D40. Even poor Milton is sneezing.

Ichabod and his pursuer


Sleepy Hollow, New York
28 July 2011

Of course, it would have been so much better if I'd posted this in October as I'd planned. Ah well. Best laid plans.

They're baaaack


Single camellia blossom
8 November 2010

This was taken last year, but the camellias are currently a riot of blossom.

Tech stuff: Both photos taken with my Nikon D40 and edited together with good old Windows Picture It! 10.

Die geist


Watermark & pumpkins
31 October 2011

I'm working on a new watermark for my photos (including a digital one), and this one just made me laugh.
