Indulging my palm-frond fixation in South Pasadena. After more than a month of distractions both large and small (the biggest being the intentionally-set wildfires that burned their way across our mountain and threatened our tiny town for nearly a week) I’m ready to get out and start shooting again. Stay tuned!
Nature is ever at work building and pulling down, creating and destroying, keeping everything whirling and flowing, allowing no rest but in rhythmical motion, chasing everything in endless song out of one beautiful form into another. ~ John Muir
June gloom reflected; Newport Beach, California
What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade. ~ Gertrude Jekyll
Sand, sea, and sky; Newport Beach, California
The sea is a desert of waves,
A wilderness of water.
~ Langston Hughes
I know, I know. Slow shutter speed and water aren’t the most original combination but I just can’t help myself.
I’m still working my way through the hundreds of photos I took during my recent trip to the beach so I hope you’ll bear with me as I post a few more. In the meantime, I hope you’re enjoying these early days of summer as much as I am!
