A TIME FORGOTTEN…

•February 18, 2016 • 2 Comments

Passed by this piece of history today on my afternoon lunch walk.  If you are old enough to remember these gas pumps, then you are just a bit older than I.  Having said that, these pumps come from the golden age of the automobile.  It was a time when cars meant deep rumbling duel exhaust, lots of horse power, ethyl gasoline, and plenty of room.  A time forgotten if you will…

IT’S FALL??

•January 7, 2016 • 4 Comments

As we all know in Southern California, fall doesn’t really arrive until November or December.  And sometimes even during the first week of January, one can spot a remnant of fall color.  I had to pause when I discovered this tree on a walk last week.

FIELD OF VALOR

•November 11, 2015 • 2 Comments

More than 2,000 American flags on display as a patriotic tribute to active duty soldiers and veterans.  Located at the Sierra Vista Middle School in Covina, California, this display stirred my patriotic emotions as I carefully read the story attached to each flag in this magnificent display.  Each story…unique.  Each story…personal.  Each story…heroic.  And yet, each story…sad for the families of many who, though honored for their valor, sacrificed his/her life to insure our freedoms.

We honor those who sacrifice so much!  May God bless all of our military families.  And, may God bless the United States of America.

DESCANSO GARDENS AT HALLOWEEN

Actually with little signs of fall in this particular image, it’s difficult to distinguish the season.  This area was extremely green.  But you must remember, we get most of our fall color in November.

I was not carrying my filters that would allow me to increase the exposure resulting in a more blurred waterfall.  But, I was able to create some blurring effect.  That was the best I could do without a tripod or filter.

Thanks for stopping by!
