red string drops

A little thing I found on my walk around the neighborhood this morning. Overcast days are so great for photographing flowers or really reflective things like water drops.

Flying Fortress

A beautifully restored B-17 bomber that was giving tours and rides at the Van Nuys airport. My grandfather flew these during WWII so they hold a special place in my heart.

found object

Whew, work has been (and continues to be) crazy. I'm very thankful for the work, but I'm feeling kinda underwater. Anyway, I'm trying to keep taking/posting a picture everyday so my photog muscles don't shrink up! Have a great day!
