Zen Monday: #63

Zen Monday: #63

Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what the photo’s about. I look for something worth thinking about or, failing that, at least something odd. As I post each new Zen Monday photo, I’ll add a label to last week’s to identify it [...]

Untitled 1969-2009

Untitled 1969-2009

“This major work, Untitled 1969/2009, takes the form of skywriting that will say, with Nauman’s classic mischievous humor, ‘Leave the Land Alone.’” I read that publicity phrase before yesterday’s art installation but didn’t understand it. How is “leave the land alone” funny or mischievous, let alone classy? But I went to the La Loma Bridge [...]

Looking Up

Looking Up

You recognize this, don’t you? I think what I’ll do here is make a link for those who don’t know what it is. Some folks are so familiar with it they don’t need a link. Either they’re looking at the picture saying, “Don’t tell me, don’t tell me!” or it’s a complete no-brainer. It’s not [...]

Mourning

Mourning

My friend took me out for coffee and a sandwich yesterday. We both feel like we’re mourning for the landscape. It’s going to take a while to learn to live with the changes wrought by the Station Fire. Bad things happen and sometimes they’re so bad you can’t get over them. But you learn to [...]

Somewhere There is Always Beauty

Somewhere There is Always Beauty

To those who participated in yesterday’s rant, thanks for helping me get it off my chest. Everyone gets angry sometimes and there are healthy ways to express anger other than defacing property or burning things down. The Station Fire symbolizes too much loss in too short a time. Boz and I took a walk today. [...]

The Litterin' Low Life

The Litterin' Low Life

The Sam Merrill Trail gets a lot of weekend trash. So does the west end of the Gabrielino Trail, north of JPL. These spots also get a lot of graffiti, especially on the lower reaches. The preponderance of litter and graffiti on the low paths is because getting up high on the mountain requires effort [...]

Altered Arts

Altered Arts

While interfering with vision (there are usually mountains in this view) the smoke from the Station Fire is altering vision as well. I keep finding strange light, and I’ve heard of unusual sunsets all along the coast. The smoke is doing stuff to my throat and nose, too, but I haven’t figured out how to [...]

Theme Day: Big

Theme Day: Big

For two days I’ve been trying to capture a compelling photo of the pyrocumulus cloud that hangs over the San Gabriel Mountains north of Pasadena and Altadena. It can be seen for at least 70 miles. I know this because I shot pictures of it yesterday from Huntington Beach. But I can’t do it justice. [...]
