As an artistic expression it is fine.  As a documentary record ... it is overexposed.

Starbucks ... or a good place?  ;)

Buenos Dias 'Talkers.  Yesterday, Mary Lou and Gary had a very pleasant evening.  We have tickets for an upcoming musical at the La Mirada Theatre, Singing in the Rain.  Last night, as a preview, the theatre had a showing of the original movie, Singing in the Rain. Interestingly enough, Mrs. Gene Kelly greeted us with handshakes and well wishes and then before the movie, she provided us with a lot of background info on how the movie was shot.  The theatre tossed up a huge screen covering the entire stage.  Reminiscent of theaters of old ... not just a big screen, but a really big screen.  We all enjoyed a delightfully entertaining movie with some great dance scenes and a fun time with ... Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor and Debbie Reynolds.

I haven't a rose B&W in this series.  There is one B&W of a poppy and another of a sunflower.

If it is on a public street, legally, you do not have to block out the plate if the photo is for your own private usage or for an editorial purpose.  If you use the photo commercially, you may/could have a legal problem.

‘D’ is by far my fave.  I don’t have a problem with detailless blacks and whites ... especially if they add context and drama to the image.  ‘D’ is an artistic expression of action and stress and man vs. nature ... nature is unknown, with form or detail, yet powerful ... chasing the man as he escapes barely “outruns” Nature’s clutch, Nature’s grasp attempting to bring him down, down into the unknown water, white with turbulence.

Gary made some corn beef and cabbage for dinner. Delish, paired nicely with a Firestone Pinot. Then a dip in the hot tub and now Gary’s legs are like rubber. ‘Night y’all.

Isn't Joshua Tree supposed to be happening too?  


Joshua Tree

Borrego Springs

Oui, Joshua Tree est en fleur... tous nos deserts sont en fleur. Nous avons deux deserts distincts, le Mojave et le Sonoran. Notre Mojave est l'un des deserts les plus secs au monde. Le parc national de Joshua Tree se trouve dans le Mojave. Anza-Borrego, dans la partie tres meridionale de la Californie est egalement en pleine floraison. Anza-Borrego abrite quelques-unes des plus grandes dunes de sable du monde. Une dune de sable en fleur est tout simplement incroyable.
