There’s a first for everything, and this was ours for visiting this part of California. What a stunning area! Neither of us had ever been here before, and we both vowed that it wouldn’t be the last — too much beauty to experience in too short of a visit.

With the setting sun and the languid movement of the river, this image really reminds me of the Doobie Brothers song, Black Water, especially after the light faded and the colors transitioned to monochrome:
We live near Washington, DC… but most people don’t realize that this region isn’t yet a megalopolis like other major urban centers; i.e., New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, etc. The really dense areas of the DC region are generally contained within the 20-mile diameter of the Washington Beltway, although urban blight has slowly been creeping out to the suburbs and rural areas beyond since the mid-1970’s. The small community where we live is in the middle of a designated agricultural zone, part of which you see in this image.
Will it remain this way forever? Sadly, no. Continue Reading →
I can’t imagine stumbling across this on a dark and stormy night, after tying one on at watering hole some distance away and trying to make my way home. Shudder…
Just so everyone understands — “au revoir” means I’ll see you again… it does not mean I’m never coming back. My intent is to share images when I feel like it now, and not feeling internally required to do so. I think this will make for better images and improved posts over time.
At any rate, this is not an “I’m back”; this is “I never left, but needed a break and will be doing things differently now”.
Long time readers will know that I have been posting daily — or more often — since October 2010. After migrating from Google’s Blogger platform to WordPress in April 2013, I had to do a lot of clean-up (flushing over 1,500 posts in the process) and decided to make as much of the content here as original as possible, principally from my photography.
I’ve now reached a point where I need to take a break from posting new content daily and concentrate on other things instead.
Will I return? I have no idea at the present… but I do thank you, gentle readers, for visiting my site over the past many years, spending some time viewing my images, and commenting when you felt compelled to do so. Thank you so very much; you have no idea what it has meant to me.
