  4. Everything here is so inspiring, Jane, images and words. And this at the time when I don’t feel inspiration anywhere and have stopped taking my camera on my repetitive, limited, everything-there-is dog walks. I know, I’m lucky I have them at least. Thank you for this.

    • Manja, I’m so sorry I neglected to respond to your comment. I’m happy these inspired you and I hear you about inspiration. It is hard to “see” when it feels monotonous. Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are having a good start to the new year. 🌟

  16. Ah, what a pleasure! I have had a thing for Ginkgoes since I was about 20. NYC has lots of them – you might remember that. So my eyes lit up when I opened this post. Three Ginkgo pictures! I think the one with the roots might be my favorite, for the contrast in colors and forms. Good eye there! But I don’t know, the first one has those sweeping stem lines and the deep shading, it’s very rhythmic. Beautiful. The slightly bulging forms and precise detail in those brown leaves, whatever they are, are superb. I like the big and little fallen leaves in the leaf with clover. The shapes in the beautiful bark pattern shot kind of echo the shape of the big leaf in the next photo – a nice progression for the eyes. And “Seasonal Mix” is a nice way to wind up by giving a nod to the mash-up of seasons that LA can produce. I appreciate your focus. You seem to make a decision about what your post is going to be, and you stick with it with beautiful results. Your posts always have a finished, deliberate quality. I know I’ll never come away feeling scattered. 🙂

  17. A lot of the other kind of gold. Looking downward certainly gives a different perspective, but it seems easy to do these days … keeping your head down.

    Hope you and the family are doing well. I thought we would be with you in lockdown land. The situation here is not looking very good. My wife Laurie said she and Andrea are going to start working COVID cases at the end of the week. They reassigned her three residents last week. When that happened, she knew it would be a matter of time before working those cases. Though they haven’t formally announced it, Univ of Colorado Hospital has halted elective surgeries and may issue a divert order soon. A divert order is when all emergency services are closed. They’re pretty full. Laurie also said they’ve been moved up on the priority list for the vaccine, but don’t know when yet.

    Stay well, stay extra safe.

    • Hi Ron, How nice to hear from you. Glad you enjoyed the Gingkos- we probably threw their “stink bombs” at each other as kids. 🙂
      Wishing you a wonderful holiday, too. Hope everyone is happy and well. Stay safe and healthy. Thanks so much! ❤️

  39. I’m puzzling over Weston’s assertion that “the camera sees more than the eye.” When it comes to tonal range, for example, the eye is much more sensitive. At the same time, I’ve found the simplified view a camera provides is sometimes more appealing esthetically than what I saw with my eyes.

  41. Beautiful images Jane. The leaves look so perfect unlike this years autumn in the Northeast. On Long Island the leaves were either green before they dropped or overly burnt and full of holes after they did drop.

  46. All are wonderful, Jane. But the real standout, for me, is the clarity and detail of the dew drops on the Ginko leaves. When I was younger my nickname, not necessarily appreciated, was Gink so I have an affinity for the tree and its unique leaves.
