This pole1 presides over a busy intersection. As I stood in the field by the pole, snapping pictures of the pole’s ID plate and then up at its hardware, I wondered what the people sitting in their cars were thinking. How long before I have to explain to a police officer that I think power poles are beautiful?
No wires on this pole.
The horizon always look cleaner, smoother from the air. And it’s just a little more fun when it’s the tops of the clouds making the horizon.
The blue above the clouds above the fog above the mist was beautiful this morning!
We dropped by NW 23rd, celebrating Ashley’s recent birthday with desserts at Papa Haydn. Waiting for a table for seven, we wandered a while and I snapped some shots. Fireside’s marquee, with its neon accents and witty epigram, won the evening.1
- Rethinking, I would award the win to the hazelnut huckleberry cheesecake I enjoyed for dessert. Mmm… :-) ↩
I experimented with taking pictures of my screen. The diagonal stripes are real. The moire patterns are the result of the camera’s sensor, image resizing, and your computer’s display.
This evening, Heather and I walked around the neighborhood while the Earth continued spinning its path around the sun. The moon waited in the wings, soon to play a starring role.
After going to an orchid show in Sacramento a couple of years ago, I’ve developed a soft spot for orchids. We have more than a few plants on our kitchen drainboard. I think maybe five of them are orchids.
If only I could make the Christmas cactus happy, too. I wonder, if I spent even a portion of the time I did learning about orchids, I bet I could.
Do you have a favorite house plant?
