Tree with a view

Another from our trip to Ethiopia. This is in a national park that contains three lakes and many other interesting and beautiful scenes.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Ok, last one...

The last of my pictures from the fog (for now).

Foggy night

It was so surreal being out in this thick fog; quiet, cold and constantly changing. I found it very inspiring.

Foggy morning

It's been fairly foggy around here lately, and this morning was especially so. I thought I'd take a walk around the neighborhood and see what moments the fog had created.

And who knows, I might have even gone out after dark too. To be continued...

Spotlight on America

Another from the morning at my parent's farm. Wonderful to find these little vignettes.

Frame for my flower

This is the Sepulveda Dam again. This time playing the part of frame for this delicate yellow flower.

California summer

Remembering the warm California summer.

A tree just down the street from my house. I love the texture of the bark and the contrasting of foreground and background colors.

My girl

My little girl is growing up so fast. I took some pictures of her this past weekend wearing some clothes made by a friend of ours. The clothes were beautiful and so was she. The light from the setting sun worked out just as I had hoped it would. This is my favorite one from that shoot.

Taken on a recent visit to my parents' farm in Louisiana. It was early, but well worth it.

Wherever imagination takes him...

Boy was he driving that tractor. That was the most fun he had the whole day. I believe that in his mind the whole world opened up in front of him. He was steering and shifting and bouncing in his seat like all that iron was under his command. Someday his feet will reach the pedals and his body will catch up to that imagination, and there'll be no stopping him.

Two friends

Found these wildflowers while wandering around the Sepulveda Dam. The just seemed to glow with the sun behind them.

Ethiopian Rainbow

One of the rare times the sun peeked out during our trip to Ethiopia. And what a beautiful sight it was.

Only a matter of time

Well, I couldn't go too long without using a picture of my kids. They are a continuing source of joy and fascination. My little man is growing up so fast.

Fall in the city

Fall is certainly here, even in the city.

A rose by any other name...

Simple, beautiful, a rose.

Old favorite

One of my favorites from our trip to Ethiopia. This scene is very typical of the farmlands of Southern Ethiopia.

Spooky tree

Another post that might seem a bit late for Halloween, but I didn't take this with the haunting holiday in mind. I noticed this tree while taking a walk in the neighborhood near my work. The sun was going down behind some stormy clouds and I liked the gradation in the sky and the way it made the limbs stand out.

Sherbert ceiling

This was taken at the entrance to the subway that I posted some images from a while back. I loved the colors and shape and the way the light added some texture at the bottom.

NoHo Methodist

I got up early to go check out this church that I see everyday on my way to work. I thought it was an old Spanish Mission type church but it turned out to be the North Hollywood Methodist church. It was beautiful to watch the sun rise and start highlighting all the detail and beauty in this building.

Bloggy month

November is National Blogging month. Yes I know, it seems that every month has something associated with it, but I'm using this as inspiration. My goal is to post an image every day this month to kick start me into posting more regularly. My first image is one I took for Halloween but I think it's still appropriate the day after. Oh, I have the comments turned on so please feel free to leave a message or comment.
