Time Flys By.....

My last post was in September. Winter has settled on the Central Valley. Here that means humidity, a bit of rain and a lot of fog. I rather like the fog. It makes the cookie cutter neighborhoods seems less alike. The environment seems fresher and everyone drives just a bit slower - a good thing indeed.

The fog in the photo above dropped like a flimsy silk veil over a refinery. One can imagine any view in the fog. I wouldn't pick refinery as the daily backdrop to my commute - my imaginings would transform the area into a pond with lush vegetation....hmmm, the influence of New England. The hook here sits in the lower right hand corner of the photo. Pansies in winter - I love that!
Hope to begin photographing in earnest again soon. Am slowly, slowly, slowly beginning to see what is unique here.
