I got a kick out of these little guys at a recent show and shine.
You always expect boys and cars to go together, but I chuckled when I noticed that it wasn’t the metal and muscle that interested this pair… It was their cell phone.
I had the opportunity to visit the Bay Area in 2004. I was only there for a few hours, and of course it’s no fun alone – which I was – but I was glad to see this American icon at least, and I spent most of my time there enjoying this historic view. Some day I’d like to go back there and spend a few days looking around. I’d really like to tour Alcatraz. I love to ponder on defunct infrastructure.
Oh, I think someone should tell the people in charge that the Golden Gate Bridge is in fact red.
Hoodoos are geological formations caused by hydraulic erosion of rocks over millions of years – the soft rock washes away while the harder layers remain.
This particular hoodoo is near Drumheller, Alberta, famous for the Royal Tyrell Museum – a world famous collection of dinosaur bones. If you get the chance you should check it out. Here’s a link.
This place felt and still feels healthy to me – a place for quiet contemplation and reflection.
Of course, the mighty Pacific speaks for itself, but sometimes it’s the details which absorb, and in this case I particularly like the way the deep pitch black of the overhanging tree contrasts with the bright green grass.
It speaks to me.
I find this simple capture quite optimistic.
With five feet of snow still on the ground at a mountain lake boat-launch, this dogged little sign assiduously instructs people regarding the activities of an altogether different season. Like a form of foreshadowing, it speaks to summer pastimes which are now only weeks away.
Here, smoke from distant fires shrouds the mountain tops near Canmore, Alberta and transforms ‘ordinary’ arêtes into mysterious natural structures. I like the different shades of blue here, which envelope the smoky crenellations. They give the illusion, almost, of a fortress under siege.
What on earth could possibly be more natural than nature?
