Star

This little flower lives by a surface street on the way towards Tecolote Canyon, a location where I walk my dog quite often.

Someone said that this flower is called a monkey’s paw. I do not know. …. What I do know is the location. … And that location is here. -> On Google Maps.

If you go there, give me a call and I will show you some other arts of Tecolote Canyon. It is a nice walk.

Hibiscus in the Morning

Happy Thanksgiving. I am happy for many fine friends and fine things.

This is a morning Hibiscus flower in the back yard.

Racenes of Nodding Flowers

I wanted to shoot something for the 10-10-10 day. I got busy doing some other things and did not get to go out into the world and shoot something that illustrated the day.

But, I did have this flower laying around on the tenth day of the tenth month in the 2010th year of the modern calendar. …

So here is my visual ode to that specific day.

Once, I saw the World.

I love these shiny balls. Everyone of them is a locus of intellectuality. … In this image, the reflective ball captures, not only the world in a sphere, but the entire universe. In that miniature captured Universe, everything can be held in your hand. If you can hold it in your hand, you can perceive the reality of it.

Fiesta Island, the isle of love.

A few of my friends, and our dog partners, visited Fiesta Island. 😉 All of us had a very nice time in a beautiful section of San Diego.

My dog, Gypsy, and I go there quite often. We have a wonderful time there.

This is a link to a few more Gypsy images

I wanted to invite all of my friends that could make it, down to fiesta island with their dogs so we could do a giant dog shoot. (I will set a date for that soon)

In the Green

I have a fun time with my niece when she chooses to go with me to the canyon to walk with my dog, Gypsy. We have a wonderful time down there. Gypsy chases lizards, never catches them, but she has fun. Lena runs ahead, then lags behind, continually looking, laughing, chattering away, having a great time. …

Me, I have a great time always. … But, I get to capture some images of the really good times.

Wildflowers along Lake Henshaw

As I was driving down the east grade of Palomar Mountain with a couple friends and we saw this pink and yellow tinge way across the lake. Where is this? This sentence is linked to a map of the location.

I was so excited to see this place that I neglected to secure the car keys. … We looked around all over this set of hills, every location that I had laid down in the grass to shoot something. We looked for over and hour. I was about to call San Diego and have someone drive up the second set of keys. … Luckily, Jeffrey found the keys on the ground, right next to the driver’s door.

So, you should also take an eagle-eyed-friend along.

Garlic, Sweet Garlic

I have been watching the Garlic bloom outside the kitchen window. It has been blooming for a while, and I have been watching it, …

And, today was the day I wanted to capture. I do not know what to say about this image, really. To me, this is Garlic, Sweet Garlic. And I think it is beautiful.

Looks Like Food, to me.

The other day, we had some food. … That is all it was, food, nothing special.

But, this little purple flower looks so good that I want to spin the stamens on a fork with the purple sauce dripping. … All the while eating the little yellow meatballs.

Oh heck! I think I forgot to eat lunch as I was editing images this afternoon.

Craig’s Hat and Poem – Craig Noel Memorial Party

Craig’s Poem
by Deborah Taylor

I don’t know what to tell you

“The rest is silence,” like the poet said

Tell me how to love the theatre again

Tell me how to love stage again

When his hand led me to the wings

When his voice led me to the lights

When his heart led me to that Poet.

You know the one-

The one who wrote, “Now cracks a noble heart”

“Good night sweet prince”-

Our prince is gone

Our king

Our teacher

Tell me how to break the silence

roaring in my head.
