Fabric Pattern #13

Here is a delightful, whimsical pattern
found on the cushions of some of the
chairs in the lobby of Portola Plaza.

I kept hoping to find one of the fish
swimming in the opposite direction!

Following the lights...

Here I'm sharing a little bit of experimental light-play.
Mix a foggy, damp, grey morning
with various light subjects
and you get this effect.
I like the abstract nature
(is that an oxymoron?)
of this composition.

Front Yard Mushrooms

Of all the front yards
in all the world,
these mushrooms picked mine
to show up in.

They were tiny.
Their canopies no larger than a dime.
Nestled as they were
among the pine needles,
the eucalyptus leaves,
and the mulch,
they were real
practically screaming out
in their squeaky imaginary voices,
"Me! Me! Take my picture!"

So, you see,
I couldn't help it.

The voices told me to do it.

Check your guns at the door!

On the ceiling!
