  1. The spider web took my breath away! The magnolia pods are unusual, so colorful.

  2. Gorgeous images … a real pleasure to view! I especially like your Palm Symphony … a clever image and title.

  3. Wonderful series of photos ~ the shift of color and B&W makes each style stand out, and of course your incredible eye and framing. The Spider Loves Roses photo emphasizes this best for me, to be able to see this shot and then capture it like you did with the dew dancing on the web. Very cool. Also enjoyed the Ginko leaves and Magnolia pods, these two photos complemented each other very well – they make a good dancing pair πŸ™‚

    • Hi Randall, Great to hear from you. πŸ™‚ Loved reading your response to the images- I’ve been enjoying my walks especially in the foggy, cooler weather. I felt lucky with the spider web and have been enjoying the gingkoes and magnolias especially– such fun details. I see you are posting– will be stopping by for a GS refresh! Thanks very much for taking a moment to stop by. πŸ™‚

  4. Hi Jane, it looks like you’re really settling into the new aesthetic territory. Gone are the SF city lights and GG Bridge, but oh, what you are doing with those palms! Not to mention all the other fascinating things that grow in the LA metro area, like that interesting, twisted Magnolia pod. The Gingko leaves, wow, they’re really nestled in there and what a study of textures that is – perfect for such an evenly tomes black and white. I love it. I like the lamp post, and that mature Ginglo in all its autumnal splendor is very upbeat. But I think my favorite might – might – be ‘Arroyo Dreaming.’ There is a kind of subtle mystery suggested by the depth of field – one wonders what’s back there. The various levels and layers and those pale grays work beautifully together. It looks like you alternated soft grays with bright golds and greens, which works very well. I look forward to more of your local walks. πŸ™‚

    • Hi Lynn, I so appreciate reading your thoughts on these– thanks very much. You are insightful in my search for inspiration! It’s coming along and I am embracing the change. It’s great that Arroyo Dreaming rises to the top for you– I was really taken with the mix of trees and plants and the subtleness in B&W with the fog. It’s a beautiful green space throughout Pasadena for which I am thankful. I am looking forward to your posts and catching up. πŸ™‚

      • I see I made a nice typo but I guess you knew what I meant. Wow, Ginglo, another one! What happened to spellcheck? I kind of like Ginglo, don’t you? Sigh, and the last sentence in my comment referred to the post overall, i.e. the way you alternated color & black & white images. I’m glad you have that greenspace to keep working with. It’s good to have interesting residential areas and some parkland, not just one or the other. I’m glad to hear you’re getting a handle on what you can do there. When I first moved up here I felt like all I was doing was making pretty pictures of the kind any tourist might make. It took a while to figure out how to get past that. Stunning scenery also brings challenges! πŸ˜‰ Enjoy your evening…

  13. Nice you had fog. I was in Twentynine Palms for two weeks, on a business trip. We had some cloud cover, one cloudy day, but most of the time, sunny. At least we didn’t have any desert heat. πŸ™‚
