Blue Wall #3

When I look at this photo
I think I can HEAR
the sun shining,
the wind blowing,
the rain falling,
all at one time.

The beautiful weathered appearance
along with lines and shadows
and that persistent blueness.
(No pun intended, at first.)

The clear blue sky
creates a stable cyclorama
to enhance the scrumptious
details of this stately dome.
The brickwork
and the red, gold, and white
the arched openings
with faux columns
and headers.

Palms and Fountains in Anaheim

Anaheim Convention Center,
arena peeking into the photo from left
like what is being called a "photo bomb" these days;
similarly the flagpole finial in the center of the pic
jutting toward the fountain...
"Big A" sculpture in the distance,
and beyond that a glimpse of 
Disney's "California Adventure" amusement park.
Palm trees,
concentric decorative paving...
very nearly too many elements in this photo.

How many humans can you find in this pic?

A desolate landscape:
mountains, valleys,
crags, ravines,
buttes, canyons,
riverbeds, lava flows...
hidden images
faces, objects, mythical beasts and creatures.
All for study
in a square foot of live tree sheathing

Chair #7

Perfectly sturdy,
tossed aside
when the building it belonged to
was abandoned.
If a chair could curl up
in a fetal position,
I think this lonely chair
would do it.
maybe this chair
is moving toward
The Light.

Random Decor

This is simply
about random decor
in a Washington, DC,
hotel lobby.

The giant chess pieces
are eye-catching in their chrome-like glory...
next to cowhide side panels on a leather armchair...
on top of a madly modern print carpet...
